2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Ethan. Appreciate your time. I was wondering what you thought of Victor Reyes and Connor Lien (particularly Lien, as he's less-covered) as far as ceiling/realistic projections and possible comps.
(RetroKryptonite from Oklahoma)
Thanks for stopping by. I wrote up Reyes earlier in the year.

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=100

His pure bat-to-ball skills are impressive at the plate, but there's virtually no power in his game at present and it's a left-field profile all the way. It's a tough sell in a corner, but he's eons away and is a projectable kid. He's going to hit all the way up, but the power development will determine his ultimate role.

On Lien, he's got the range to play center field with a 45 arm and is a plus or better runner. I'm not in love with the swing. His hands are stiff/rigid, the bat speed is just okay, and he's got some miss in the zone with a slight bit of length. I put a 4 on him and could see a scenario where he gets a cup of coffee because he has speed and can play center field, but he's realistically a good organizational piece. I'm higher on the other Connor on that squad (Connor Oliver) and think he has a good shot at being a 4th outfielder. (Ethan Purser)
