Reese continues to show improvements in all his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate, power potential has improved through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. At 3B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.

Reese is an athletic 3B prospect that was a team player and was eager to learn. At the hot corner, Reese is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and works from the ground up. He needs to improve his first step quickness and continue to build arm strength. He makes accurate throws and can throw from multiple arm angles. At the plate, he’s aggressive on the fastball and consistently barrels the ball. He has an active load and keeps the barrel on plane. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and rotate his lower half. Reese will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
