2018 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: FRAMIL REYES OUTFIELDER SAN DIEGO PADRES

With the San Diego Padres having missed outfielder Wil Myers for virtually the entire season to this point and with third baseman Christian Villanueva serving as nothing but an out machine of late, the team looked to spark the ailing lineup by promoting slugging prospect Framil Reyes on Monday.  Despite being a bit off the prospect radar coming into last season, Reyes put himself on the map by slugging 25 home runs with 102 RBI while batting .258 at Double-A.  A .346 start with a monstrous 14 home runs in just 36 games at Triple-A to begin 2018 was the impetus for Reyes to get the call and his big-time power alone makes him one to grab in moderate to deeper mixed leagues.  In terms of the rest of the statistical package, Reyes is not much of a base stealer (6 total steals the last two seasons-plus) and until this year, his batting average has not been terrific either.  In Reyes' defense, he has lowered his K rate this year in the minors, while also upping his walks which are clear signs of development.  That means Reyes may be able to post a useful average to go with decent power which adds to any possible upside.  As we said, pick up Reyes in moderate to deeper leagues and monitor everywhere else.
