2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Buddy Reed in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a contract with the Padres in June of 2016 that includes a $1.075 million signing bonus.
Promoted to Double-A
OFSan Diego Padres  AA
July 9, 2018
Reed was promoted to Double-A San Antonio on Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
While his .324/.371/.549 slash line, 12 home runs and 33 steals in 343 plate appearances at High-A are certainly eye-popping, it's worth noting that Reed (23) was old for the California League. He will face a much more appropriate challenge against Double-A pitching. Reed's 70-grade speed and average raw power are not up for debate, but it would be wise to be skeptical of his hit tool's utility against upper-level pitching until he proves otherwise.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A rare college outfielder with monster tools, Reed fell to the Padres with the No. 48 pick, signing for an under-slot bonus, because his below-average hit tool may not allow him to get the rest of his tools to show up in games. Despite his imposing 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame, Reed has plus-plus speed and should stick in center field. While his build suggests he could hit for power down the road, there are no signs that he will do so in games. He managed just a .083 ISO with zero home runs over 230 plate appearances as a 21-year-old in the Northwest League last year. The one positive sign is that he made contact at an acceptable clip, striking out just 23.0 percent of the time. If the hit tool improves by a grade or more, Reed could be a five-tool force, making him worth a flier in deeper dynasty leagues.
