Jomar Reyes Off To Hot Start With Keys

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to point out that Jomar Reyes is quietly batting .520 (13-for-24) through his first six games.

Yea I know. Small sample size and all that jazz. Still, an encouraging start from one of the more disappointing prospects from the 2016 season. Lets hope he's ready to break out and that this isn't a flash in the pan.

I'd noticed -- very encouraging.   He's still only 20 years old, 2nd youngest on the team (2 months older than Ofelky Peralta and 2 days younger than Ryan Mountcastle; everyone else is 21 or older).    Hopefully the second time at Frederick is the charm!

Small sample size, but encouraging. The Keys were having some trouble getting on a roll recently (one hot game, then drop all the way off, then get another big game, drop off, ect) but he has been consistent, which is good. Looking forward to more from him this season.

Yep.  Definitely going to be fun watching that lineup down there.    Hays, Mountcastle, Gassaway, Reyes.

Reyes just wasn't right last year (hand injury?).  It doesn't make sense that his numbers would have dropped so much between Delmarva and Frederick, which is not a huge jump considering how we saw DJ Stewart immediately improve with his promotion.  Nice to see him get back on track.  He could be in for a big bounce back season and is still young for the league. 

I'd really like to see Reyes and Mountcastle get the entire season in Frederick regardless of their performance. Hays and Gassaway are about 18 months older and I could envision a second half promotion to Bowie for one or both of them if they have earned it.

Reyes with 3 two baggers this eve.

Batting .500 now. Any chance he is moved up before the break? Rosa is playing 3B for Bowie and could easily move up to Norfolk.

There's no hurry.    If Reyes is hitting well on Memorial Day, I'd consider it.

As much as Reyes struggled last year, I don't see any issue with him spending the year in Frederick and wrecking the league. He just turned 20 in February. 

My bigger question for Reyes is does he stay at 3rd. He's a huge kid, and does he need to move to first base.

Why does Reyes have to stay a year at Frederick if he is hitting the snot out of the ball?

Something was very wrong last year and he still was Frederick.

If he is healthy and the league is too easy for him, then you promote him.

I think it depends on how dominant he is.  I wouldn't promote him simply because he's doing well.  He needs to really be tearing up the league for an extended period of time.  Playing the whole season at just 20 years old. What's the rush? If he's hitting .350 in July, okay.  

With Hays and even Gassaway I would look to be more aggressive with promotions due to their age. Hays I can see being promoted in May or June if he keeps it up.

Well, Mercedes was hitting the snot out of the ball in Delmarva last year and they didn't promote him until very late in the season.

There is no need to rush to promote Reyes. Let him keep crushing the ball and if/when injuries to an infielder in Bowie comes up in June/July, call him up and let him get a taste of AA.

Especially since Bowie has been doing really good so far. There is no one really for him to take the spot of.

Reyes has lost some points from me now with this blatant immaturity.  He's going to miss about 1/3 of the season now.  

Any report on why he punched a wall?  Was this during a game?
