Latest Update Reyes doubles, drives in two against Rays Sat Aug, 23, 07:01 PM
One of the game's premier base-stealers, he can also hit with power--especially doubles and triples. Is selective enough at the dish to produce big numbers. Is also an athletic and solid fielder with a great arm at shortstop.
Flaws: : Has been injury-prone for stretches of his career, especially with his legs (his meal ticket). Makes his fair share of errors at shortstop, mainly because of a lack of concentration. Is a little too high-maintenance.
Reyes had a great day at the plate Saturday. He's been missing some of the power that fantasy owners expected this season, but has made up for it with his speed and average. Analyst: Ben Diamond
After an abysmal first-half, Reyes has steadily produced. August has been his best month to date, and he could be the most valuable shortstop down stretch after the injury of Troy Tulowitzki. Wednesday propelled his season line to an encouraging .294/.340/.417 with eight home runs and twenty-two steals. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Reyes has a nine-game hit streak working and is batting .429 (18-for-42) with four RBI, nine runs scored and two stolen bases. That's really been where the complaints are coming from regarding him -- just 22 stolen bases on the year -- but he continues to be a strong table-setter and is helping out with the solid batting average and the runs scored. Just a bit more speed to finish off the year would certainly make this a little more palatable, especially where he had been getting drafted.Analyst: Howard Bender
The knock on Reyes has always been how prone he is to injury and despite starting the season on the DL Reyes has only missed those first 16 games due to a DL stint. On the season Reyes is hitting .283 with 66 runs, eight home runs, 33 RBI and 22 stolen bases. Reyes faces Tigers David Price in tomorrows game who he is just 2 for 9 against in his career.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
