Buddy Reed’s Scouting Report

Reed is a very athletic switch hitter with plus speed and defensive skills. Reed struggled at the plate in his junior year, but his athletic ability is too good for most teams to pass up. He has ability to make contact from both the left side and right side of the plate, but his approach at the plate needs work. Reed looks like a future gold glove winner in center field.

Strengths

  • Elite speed, could potentially steal 30-plus bases a season
  • Plus arm
  • Plus glove
  • Has above average contact potential

Weaknesses

  • Needs to improve his plate approach
  • Needs to improve his hitting mechanics

Where could Reed end up in the draft?

Reed could go as early as 27th to the Orioles and could go as late as 37th to the Athletics. Right now I could see the Rangers taking him at 30th overall.
