Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 45 | Run: 55 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 40

For the entirety of his professional career with the Pirates, ever since signing back in May 2012, Reyes had flown under the radar. He spent two years in the Dominican Summer League before finally making his United States debut in 2014, moving one rung at a time after that and never having more than 400 at-bats in a year until the 2017 season. But a strong year in Triple-A in 2018 led to a September callup to Pittsburgh, where his energy on the field made many new fans.

If the Pirates could bottle Reyes, they'd have the best energy drink on the market. He plays with infectious energy at all times, making him an exciting player to watch. Though he's just 5-foot-8, there is some impact from the right side of the plate thanks to very good bat speed in his buggy whip of a swing. While he can get streaky at times, he doesn't strike out much and he's shown he can handle any fastball, and any level, thanks to his quick hands.

Reyes began his career as a shortstop, then started playing second base more frequently. Now he profiles as a guy meant to fill a super-utility role and he's shown he can be an average defender at three infield positions and all three outfield spots.
