RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jo-Jo Reyes.
Reyes somehow manages to pick up starting jobs in the big leagues, although that probably says more about the quality of freely available pitchers than anything else. The 27-year-old Reyes was once again an unmitigated failure in Baltimore, with a 5.57 ERA in 25 starts as an Oriole. Expect Reyes to resurface somewhere in 2012 after the Orioles non-tendered him in December. His status as a former prospect with the Braves and as a reasonably young left-handed arm will almost certainly keep teams interested, and it's possible that a move to the bullpen is in the cards for him after signing with the Pirates in January.
After making 22 starts for Atlanta in 2008, Reyes was mostly relegated to Triple-A last season after the Braves upgraded their rotation. He struggled in his six starts in the majors when called upon after a few injuries, before missing two months with a hamstring injury and then working in the Triple-A Gwinnett rotation. While he posted a 2.86 ERA at Gwinnett, he had just a 32:24 K:BB ratio. Although he's never had great control, he induces a lot of ground balls (47 percent career rate in the majors) and had decent strikeout rates in the minors before last season. His drop to a combined 5.3 K/9IP between the majors and minors last season isn't a good sign. Atlanta has enough depth in the starting rotation that it's hard to see how he has a significant role with the Braves without several injuries. He may need a change of organizations to get another crack at a big league rotation.
Reyes jumped from Double-A to the majors last season and was hit hard in his rookie season. He had good strikeout rates in the minors with passable control, but the long ball was a major issue after his promotion. He had just 19 innings above Double-A before last season, so some time at Triple-A could serve him well. Considering that he'll be just 24 in 2009, he'll likely need to have a strong spring or start the season hot at Triple-A to get another shot in the rotation.
Reyes may be the leading candidate for the fifth starter job with the Braves after climbing from Double-A to the majors last season. Reyes went 12-1 with a 2.72 ERA and 110:47 K:BB ratio in 109.1 innings between Double-A and Triple-A last season. His first major league season didn't go as well, but he was 2-1 with a 3.09 ERA in his final four starts. Reyes can be erratic and needs to watch his weight, but at his best he confuses hitters with a 90 mph fastball, a solid curveball and an effective changeup. He has just 19 starts above High-A, so he may need more time in the minors before he's ready for the majors, but the Braves may give him a shot right out of spring training.
