I just picked up Reyes just because he's having a solid spring. Anyone think he could become a solid sleeper? I think he will have a better season than Wainwright. Am I kidding myself.

Reyes is a nice pickup.
He has fallen in just about every draft I have seen

He was considered a better prospect than Wainright before 2006. He was also lights out last year at triple A. He will have a good year.

Yep he was always a top prospect who had health issues.

I would expect him to put up mid to high 3 ERA with decent K rate and WHIP. He has the most talent out of anyone on that staff after Carp.

Would you rank him above such other late-round picks this year as Contreras, Lilly or C. James?

i also like Reyes better than those pitchers mentioned, and ive been surprised to see Reyes going undrafted in some leagues.

Reyes is a perfect example of a young, talented pitcher who often gets forgotten. He didn't make a big initial splash like some other guys like Hamels, Cain, Weaver etc. I think he is simlar to Haren, perhaps a tad better, and as long as he is healthy, he will eventually become a top starter.

Well the only people who really know how good he is are people who follow prospects. The average fan just sees the lousy ERA he posted last year (in like 80 ip) and takes a pass.
