Reilly showed similar abilities in his game at Team One West as he has done in previous workouts. He has good pre-pitch actions in the INF, he fields the ball out in front of his body and he fields it cleanly. Reilly has a quick transfer and throws accurately to his target. Defensive skills can improve if he can work to get around the baseball better. On the mound, Reilly throws strikes and he works in good rhythm. He repeats his delivery, has good direction toward home, and he finishes well. Added arm strength should help mound effectiveness further improve. Offensively, Reilly has a good load, good bat speed, and a line drive approach. He gets good hip turn and has some pull side pop in his bat. If Reilly can stay on top of the ball, improve hitting the away pitch, and tap into more lower 1/2, offensive tool grades will further improve.

Walker continues to show improvements in is baseball abilities and is now a class 4 type player on the mound. Arm strength has improved with life, carry on his throws across the diamond. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 81-84 mph with slight arm side run. Changeup is best off speed pitch showing a solid feel for with sinking and fading action. He attacks hitters as he throws strikes with all his pitches and will get looks from college coaches.

Reilly has improved Offensively and Defensively since we last saw him in 2008. He improved at 3B showing good footwork, hands, and overall strong athleticism. Reilly is light on his feet, he moves well laterally, and he fields the ball properly out in front of his body. His backhand is smooth and his throws are accurate to the target. His radar velocity was clocked at 84 MPH, and if he can work to get his feet under him a bit more on his throws across the diamond, his numbers could further improve. Reilly again showed improvements offensively in both categories. He has a balanced approach, and his bat speed and barrel accuracy are both good. Reilly aggressively attacks the baseball and is able to spray the ball to all fields. Offensive numbers could further improve if Reilly can shorten up his swing and loosen his grip. Over the past year, Reilly has matured into a very solid ball player!

Walker improved his 60-yard dash quite a bit, got it down from 7.97 to 7.68. At the plate, he showed solid hands and a good bat path. At times, he got the bat through the zone with good life - when he stayed balanced and closed with his front side he had gap power, he was a bit inconsistent in these areas however. Defensively, he handled himself well and showed the makings of some range. Can work to get his hands more out in front to make plays. Overall, a young player with upside.

Reilly is a young, 2011 graduate, 3B with a thin, small body that does show projection as it continues to physically mature. Defensive abilities in the infield are slightly average. He centers balls well and tracks balls all the way to glove. Glove action is late due to his feet stopping as his body breaks down into fielding position. He needs to come get and play through the baseball with his feet and hands with momentum to his target. Foot speed is well below average but should improve with age. He shows a solid feel with his backhand and shows off his athletic ability on slow rollers. Arm strength is slightly average and needs to get on a strict long toss program to aid in building more arm strength. At the plate, Walker has slightly average ability and solid average power. He displays a quiet set up and maintains balance throughout. Hands are direct to the baseball into a line drive type approach. Power numbers should increase as more overall body strength is developed. Reilly has abilities with time and room to continue to improve.
