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?

    • The part of this no one (at least that I've seen) talks about is what is the impact of sign stealing?  Of course we have no real data whatsoever.  No double-blind studies of how Jose Altuve would hit with and without knowing what's coming.  We have no idea how often he got the signs.  We have some apples-to-pears data from home/road games, but home/road splits are going to be different anyway.  And the data is mixed; Altuve had a big home split last year, but an equally big away split in 2018. It's like PEDs.  No really good data on anything, so the assumption is that it takes an average dude and turns him into an MVP.  But the reality is almost certainly much messier, much less clear cut.  Some people did it all the time, some rarely, some never.  The benefits were almost certainly all over the place from negative impacts from side effects to massive performance gains.  But we're just guessing.  Same thing with sign stealing.  Some will assume that this is worth 25 wins to the Astros, but we have no idea if it's even a significant thing.  For all we know it's like corking your bat; the benefits of that over legal bats are usually zero or worse.  Sign stealing has been so prevalent over the years we've all heard the stories of batters who didn't want to know.  It messes with their approach and their heads if they're tipped off to what's probably coming. In the end we can probably make the assumption that stealing signs helps the average batter somewhat.  But we have no idea of the actual impact.
    • I think “otherworldly” is a huge overstatement of what he’d need to be offensively to compensate for his defense.      Last year he was worth 0.1 rWAR, -0.2 fWAR, so basically replacement level.   He was 48th of 68 catchers who had at least 100 plate appearances in fWAR, so that places him solidly in the middle of second string catchers in overall value.    With a decent improvement in his offense, he’d be above average overall for a backup catcher.     Somewhere between .750-.775 OPS would take him off the cusp, IMO.   I don’t consider that “otherworldly.” By the way, I’m using WAR because it’s available, but I don’t completely trust it for catchers.    
    • Yes, but we have out performed them in the offseason getting rid of Villar and Bundy. 
    • This one slipped by me until Roch mentioned it today in his blog.   He was signed on Jan 10th. This looks like a Wojo signing to me.    Long time minor league starter,  who has had a cup of coffee in the majors. From the Dominican. Between AAA and the winter league his stats this past season are: 19-3,    2.01 ERA,  29 S,   188.1 IP,  171 H,   162 SO,  1.019 WHIP He played with Houston at AAA in 2016 going 12-1, 3.12 ERA in the PCL.   So Elias knows  him well. Valdez doesn't look like someone that is ticketed for the AAA rotation that already has 6 starters in it.   If he shows something in ST he could be in the O's rotation or long relief.  If he doesn't show enough in ST he is probably gone. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=valdez001ces
