WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Reyes signed at age 18 and has shown some potential with the bat.  He started off as a shortstop, but his defense there isn’t strong and he alternated between short and second in his second season.

2012
DSL:  284/368/399, 183 AB, 18 2B, 1 HR, 23 BB, 12 K, 18-25 SB

Reyes played short regularly and had a good debut with the bat, showing gap power and rarely striking out.  He also showed some speed.

2013
DSL:  304/376/429, 184 AB, 8 2B, 3 3B, 3 HR, 23 BB, 21 K, 15-19 SB

Despite his good debut season, the Pirates sent Reyes back to the DSL for a second season.  He improved a little at the plate.  He split his time between short and second, possibly due to the presence of a prospect — Johan De Jesus — who got a larger bonus.

2014
R+:  272/367/367, 180 AB, 9 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR, 25 BB, 31 K, 5-10 SB

The Pirates finally brought Reyes to the US and, with him being 20, so they moved him up to Bristol.  He was the team’s most frequent second baseman but also saw a little time at short.  He hit respectably, with very good plate discipline.  He struggled against LHPs for some reason, posting only a .575 OPS against them.

The Pirates didn’t have anybody terribly interesting in the middle infield at Jamestown in 2014, so they could consider moving Reyes up to West Virginia.
