While I haven't talked to anyone about him from this season yet, I wouldn't have him in the top 10 yet. Reynoso was overranked IMO. I had him in the 20's coming into the season. There are some tools there, but he is and was incredibly raw still and his tools aren't so rare that they overcome that for me (for example, a guy like Amir Garret does overcome that some because well, lefty starters that have smooth and easy deliveries that can hit 97 MPH.... they get some leeway).
With that said, I am a big fan of Ortiz. Some of those tools are loud.
