I don't know, but looking at his stats, he began as a SS in 2012 but seems to be more of a utility guy now. Last year in Altoona, he played some SS but mostly 2B and CF. This year he played 5 games at SS for Indy with the rest at 2B, 3B, LF and CF. Looks like a future utility guy.

Wilber Miller (WTM) seems to agree with you about him being the next SRod.  Arm not strong enough to be regular SS but he does posse the skills to play 2B and the outfield particularly CF.

I saw Reyes play SS 2 years ago for the Bradenton Mauraders. It's interesting how fast some players move thru the system. Alex McRae, who was recalled briefly recently but didn't pitch, started that game in Bradenton and pitched 6 strong innings. Edgar Santana pitched 2 hitless innings in relief. Jordan Luplow was on that team, but didn't play when I was there. Tanner Anderson was also on that team. Kramer and Newman were on that team (Kramer played 2B that day) so maybe their time will come soon.

I would like for the Bucs to bring up Reyes in September. He might be a good bench player for next season. Let’s see how he does in September so he can be protected from the Rule 5 Draft in December.

Just what we need, another LMG.

Reyes has only played in a few games since his promotion, but I am impressed with his hitting and he can play several positions. I think he has a good chance to be part of the 2019 bench.

Walkie said on the game telecast today he likes Reyes' aggressiveness at the plate.  I know another aggressive guy at the plate who happens to be in the HOF!

I think there's a very good chance Reyes is on the bench next year. S-Rod is gone and Harrison most likely won't be back. Frazier could be the regular 2Bman (if his defense holds up) so they will need a utility inf-of type. That's what Reyes does. From what I've read, that's how they see Reyes rather than a starter. So he might as well take over that role rather than continuing to get regular ABs in AAA.

I saw Reyes on television in one game in the outfield (right field) and it looked like he couldn't judge (or maybe catch) a fly ball. He short-armed two flies a good outfielder would have had. I only saw fragments of yesterday's game, but I would like to think the game I saw was an anomaly. If not, he might work for infield utility but I would hesitate to use him in the outfield.

I attended a game in Bradenton 2 yrs ago and he was at SS. Looked fine. His stats show over 800 minor league innings in the OF. But that was a recent switch. In his first 4 years of pro ball he was exclusively infield. He didn't start playing OF until 2016 and that was only 5 games. It wasn't until last year that they decided to make him a INF-OF type so he still may be a little raw out there. But it looks like that was the organization's plan for him.

Reyes needs some time in Bradenton over the winter.  Learning how to play some adequate OF.  Surely they can keep him on the roster to avoid MiLB FA or get him signed to a MLB contract. 

As for Frazier, yes he can play 2B and he too should be in Bradenton some this winter not so much to work on his fielding but on his getting a jump on the ground ball and foot work to increase his range.  Frazier will do better as an everyday player at one position and so will the Pirates.
