Making a few new prospect threads since a lot of the old guys were traded. If anyone wants to take over any of these, feel more than free. DOB: 10/27/93 Berkeley, CA 6'2 180lbs Throws Right, Bat Rights College: Washington Austin Rei was the Redsox 3rd round pick in 2015 out of Washington. He struggled initially, slashing .179/.285/.295 in 130 PA at Lowell. Considering he was a 21 year old with 3 years of college play under his belt, this was especially atrocious. He would not fair much better in 2016 at Greenville, slashing .212/.331/.281 in 369 PA. However, looking deeper into the numbers, his K rate went from 30% in 2015 to 22.2 in 2016. His BB rate went from 8.5% to 11.1. Fast forward to this year and Austin is currently slashing .359/.432/.641 with 4bb/4k in 44 PA. He has 9xbh in 44 PA compared to 20 in 369 in 2016 and 8/130 in 2015. He has thrown out 4/11 would be base stealers for 36%. His 2015 and 2016 numbers are not recorded on bref for some reason. He did have a thumb injury he sustained in college in 2015 and was taping that thumb up in 2016. It could potentially explain some of his struggles. At 23, he's probably a year or two older than you would like for Salem. He has potential to be an average catcher defensively but has a lot of work to get there.
