A standout in the International Prospect League, Reyes impressed scouts with his physicality and power potential while performing well in games. It earned him a ranking as MLB Pipeline's No. 23 international prospect for the 2018-19 international period as well as a $1.45 million bonus from the Tigers, who signed the Dominican infielder on July 2. He made his professional debut in the Dominican Summer League in 2019.
Physically advanced for his age, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Reyes has grown in the past year and his overall game has improved, too. He has a good approach and already shows feel for finding the barrel, with plus bat speed and some natural leverage to his swing that could make him at least an average hitter. He can already drive the ball out of the ballpark, and he's expected to show more power as he refines his swing mechanics and adds strength to his projectable frame. While he runs well, Reyes is likely to lose a step with physical maturation.
On defense, Reyes shows good hands and a good arm as a shortstop, though there's a chance he will end up at third base because of his skill set and his body type. To go along with his physical attributes, Reyes is a competitor who has been praised for his intensity on the field and how he really enjoys playing the game.
