- Alex Reyes (STL, 21 Years Old, RHP): If you are looking for a frontline starter, look no further. Reyes has the upside of a top-10 pitcher in the next few years. He has an elite fastball-breaking ball combination and his changeup has developed quite nicely. He has been known to touch 102-103 MPH with his fastball, so that speaks for itself. He has struggled this season at Triple-A, but that doesn’t take away from his potential. In 55 innings pitched, he owns a 5.07 ERA, 51 hits against, 79 strikeouts, and 27 walks. He has an elite strikeout rate, but his walk rate does scare me. He was just scratched from his most recent start in the minors, so many people believe the Cardinals are preparing to call him up to the big leagues.

1st off the Twins have the top 3 players listed for the category in Buxton, Ho-Park and Berrios.
All Minnesota youngsters could make the squad, although Buxton is posting just a .567 OPS in Spring Training – after only putting up a .576 OPS in his 129 AB for 2015. He will be given the starting job to either make it or not, after the trade of Aaron Hicks. Don’t like the favorite status for most of these categories, this will ring true one more time.
Ho-Park has looked solid at the dish so far with a 3 Slash of .283/.306/.543 – with 3 HRs and 13 RBI in his 46 AB, and at 29 years of age – coming over from the KBO, he has years of experience next to his classmates.
Jose Abreu and Ichiro Suzuki both came over as later in life rookies to the Junior Circuit and took the honors Ho-Park was a beast in Korea – blasting over 50+ HRs in each of the last 2 years there for his club team Nexen.
While you have to temper expectations coming overseas to North America from there, what I love is that the guy improved his numbers in each of the last 5 years. This bodes well for him in Minny.
With a 4 year deal in his back pocket, Park will and should remain on the big roster based on his early success.
I am not sure he will win the Award, and I am not placing any cabbage on him too, but at least he won’t be subjected to service time restrictions like other rookies. Read the rest of this entry
