Zito is God wrote:In the month of June Reyes' has been arguably the best hitter in the majors. As his hits pile up and his average is getting close to .300, his speed looks like its back and he is even hitting for some power. Is it safe to say he is back? Is it a stretch to view him as a potential 1st round pick again next year if this continues?
Well, Hamilton has been better, no question really. Reyes has been close, though. He is a first rounder next year the way I see it, because the first 6 weeks after his return was just a typical slump augmented by the injury. But as I said like a day before he caught fire
he's a streaky player as it is. The super hot will cancel out the super cold and we'll likely get a slightly below average season for Reyes compared to his usual numbers. That's still back-end first round value IMO.
