In the field, Reynolds is a very good defender. He has solid-average speed, soft hands, and a strong arm. I think he'll be an excellent third baseman as a professional, but I doubt the Mets would have drafted him here if that's what they envisioned. The bat just won't profile well at third, you'd be looking for more power. My guess is they're picturing him up the middle, either in his original position, shortstop, or at second base. I'm not sure he has the range for short, but I'm confident he has the necessary tools to handle second. I think he could be at least average there. As for baserunning, he's a smart and aggressive, and he's capable of stealing a base here and there, even if he lacks the required speed to be a big basestealer. In total, I see a second baseman who can hit for average, steal a few bases, and play at least average defense, but don't expect much power mixed in.

Reynolds is another pick with more limited upside but also a high probability of reaching the majors as a utility man, if nothing else. I am curious if the Mets intend to change his swing to something that will let him exploit his natural strength a little more, but why mess with something that is effective? If Reynolds stops hitting, he loses much of what made him attractive in the first place.

His speed was on display with the two GIDPs yesterday...

I've watched him play in this year's Super Regionals and the CWS, and his at bats haven't been impressive.

He stands a bit straight up, and his swing is probably too long for his power ceiling. I do like his fielding acumen, so I hope the plan IS (as many have speculated) to move to second base. I don't think he has the bat for third.

Reynolds drove in both Razorback runs, but the Hogs couldn't hold a 2-0 lead and were eliminated by South Carolina tonight.

Sign him up. Double good for me...Carolina continues on and we get Reynolds greened up.

Hopefully for WAY lower than the slotted amount.

Aha, that makes sense. I remember we were all trying to predict the short-season middle infields with Reynolds playing SS and Savannah definitely made the most sense for that to happen.

they have Reynolds, Cecchini, Evans, Kaupe..... Kaupe is 2b, Reynolds is SS, Cecchini is SS

So either evans is 2b or reynolds is in Savannah

Totally forgot about Rodriguez

So one of Reynolds or Rodriguez will likely be in Savannah. My guess is Reynolds.

Would you look at that :lol:
