Scouting Report / Bio: An interesting groundball pitcher with pinpoint control. Reynolds doesn't try to overpower hitters, but rather tries to get batters to pound the ball into the ground using his low 90s sinking fastball. He compliments his fastball with a solid curveball and changeup. Reynolds allowed only one homerun over 49 innings with Modesto in 2006 and is well suited for the volatile hitter-friendly environments which lie ahead of him. His experience and refined mechanics should allow Reynolds to move quickly through the system.
Future Outlook: Above-average #3 starter in the big leagues.
