In AAA, he had a BABIP of .248. I'll be the first to admit that that's likely not all bad luck and partially the result of a deserved low LD%. However, bump it up to just .280 and that .221/.278/.318 line becomes .251/.308/.350. Yes, that's not good either, but it's better and that's for his first time in Louisville.
I have no illusions that he'd ever be anything more than a backup up utility IF with a slick glove; the next Juan Castro. But this is a Juan Castro who can take a walk, meaning he might not be completely useless at the plate.
All that said, I still don't understand why Reed is a guy around #30 while Soto and Moreseco are so much higher.
