Through 12 starts in the DSL, the 18 year old lefty (always a plus to be a southpaw) has a 5-1 record and 2.30 ERA in 58.2 IP (just under 5 IP per start). He's got a WHIP of just 0.92, thanks to a batting average against of just .208 as well as a BB/9 of 1.53, suggesting good command of his pitches. On top of that, he is sporting a decent K/9 of 7.2.
Last year in the DSL, as a 17 year old he struggled to the tune of 4.38 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in a limited amount of innings (12.1 IP). There's not much of anything out there on Reyes as a prospect - no clue where his fastball sits or what type of breaking/off-speed stuff he has thus far. He could have a mid-80s fastball and good curve and is just taking advantage of young, aggressive hitters who haven't seen many good lefty breaking pitches. That said, I'm still intrigued given he throws lefty, he's relatively young at 18, and he's been by far the DSL Sox's best pitcher.

52 IP, 2.94 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 41/11 K/BB, 7.1 K/9, .234 opponents' batting average. Given that guys of similar age last year to Reyes got promotions with the same or lesser stats (like Mario and Raul Alcantara), I'd expect Reyes will be in the GCL come next summer.
