Similar to Deiner Lopez, this is probably a little early to call him a prospect, but Pedro Reyes has had the most promising season thus far in the DSL among pitchers, so I think he's worth tracking

Age: 18
Born: May 28, 1993
Position: SP
Height: 6-0
Weight: 155
Bats: Left
Throws: Left
How Acquired: International FA, January 2010

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.

Reyes wrapped up the DSL Sox's season with a win, going 5 IP and allowing 3 ER while striking out 4 and walking 1. His end of year stats:

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.

Not sure if Reyes is hurt or just being relegated to the bench due to ineffectiveness, but he's appeared in just 2 games for the GCL Red Sox to date, posting an ugly 15.43 ERA in 2.1 IP.
