Reyes was released by the Orioles on Friday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Reyes was considered an interesting prospect for several years, but he spent four seasons at the High-A level and only advanced to Double-A for a single game. In 100 games for High-A Frederick last season, he hit a solid .283/.320/.406, though he walked just 11 times.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
Despite being ranked as one of the Orioles' top prospects for the last three years, Reyes is younger than this past draft's college talent, and will head to Double-A for his age-21 season. Surgery to repair a broken pinky finger limited him to just 50 games in a repeat tour of the Carolina League. He passed the test this time around, posting a 114 wRC+ as one of the league's five youngest position players. The selling point with the burly third baseman is his 70-grade raw power, which has yet to manifest in games on a regular basis. He doesn't strike out as often as the typical young slugger (16.1 percent), but also rarely walks (4.1 percent) -- a trait disturbingly shared by the Orioles' other top hitting prospects. His 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame is already pushing it at third base, and it would not be surprising if he is regularly deployed as a designated hitter early in his big-league career. All the physical tools are there for him to succeed in such a role.
It seems weird to say, but the only thing not to like about Reyes is last season's lack of production (66 wRC+). On-field performance is obviously a pretty big aspect of a prospect's value, but the development of teenagers, specifically right-handed sluggers, is rarely linear. He was four months younger than any player in the Carolina League in 2016, which in itself excuses much of his failings. The good news is he still has double-plus raw power without debilitating swing-and-miss issues (20.5 percent strikeout rate at High-A Frederick). Many evaluators project him to move across the diamond to first base, but for fantasy purposes, the only concern should be the actualization of what could be an average hit tool. If he hits and becomes a bit more patient at the plate, then his power will show in games and his bat will profile anywhere, even at DH. There is major bounceback potential with Reyes, given his youth and raw tools, but if he falls flat again in 2017 the bandwagon will evacuate.
The Orioles had enough confidence to send Reyes to Low-A as just an 18-year-old, where he delivered when healthy during the 2015 season. Unfortunately for Reyes, a thumb injury held him to 84 games at Low-A as he missed over a month in the middle of the season. A late season hand injury was corrected with surgery after the season and Reyes is expected to enter this spring at full strength. Reyes held a .162 ISO despite his young age. He is already 6-foot-3 and 220 lbs. at his young age, so weight could actually work against him. Reyes could one day put on a power display and his hit tool is also a strength. There is no shot of making the Orioles in the near future, but Reyes could be on track to making his Orioles debut as soon as 2017. Reyes may be ready to begin the season at High-A.
