One of the biggest pop-ups in the southwest this year was Danny Reynolds, a righthander at Durango High in Las Vegas. Reynolds has the stigma of being an undersized righty--5-foot-11 and 160 pounds--which will scare some teams away. Durango head coach Sam Knapp has been a Reynolds believer for years, always telling scouts that he had the hand speed to show bigger velocity numbers. This year, Reynolds proved him right. His fastball was 86-88 mph in the fall, but something clicked for him this spring and he was consistently sitting 93-95. He also has a slider that is 77-81 with some late bite and will mix in a slower curveball. There's some effort to his mechanics--he has an extremely fast tempo, turns his back to the hitters and has some spinoff, ala Francisco Rodriguez. Reynolds has also run on his school's cross-country team and has an intense work ethic--even after the lights have been turned off at his stadium after games, Reynolds can still be found on the field, running poles. Committed to Dixie State College, he's considered signable and will likely be selected in the top five rounds.
