Prospect: Buddy Reed
Position: Outfielder
Organization: San Diego Padres
Height/Weight: 6’4”, 210 lbs.
Bats/Throws: S/R
Age/DOB: April 27, 1995
Acquired/Hometown: Round 2 (2016); Bronx, NY (University of Florida)

June 9, 2018 — Lake Elsinore Storm (High-A, California League)
Great athlete, good runner; need run times, but quick out of the box, plenty of get-up in the outfield to get to top speed. Plays remarkably deep in right field in my look; feels like he can run in on balls, track down short fly balls and pop ups moving in much easier. Decent arm strength there; need to see it more … Interesting bat path at the plate, particularly from the left side; some bat wrap with front arm bar, will get rotational in his swing seemingly without an ideal bat path, but the hands are quick and get it done; will get out to pull balls on his inner half, full plate coverage, etc… Underwhleming first few pro seasons for Buddy Reed after being drafted out of Florida by the San Diego Padres, but he seems to be hitting his stride this summer in Lake Elsinore; more on him when I get a better, longer look later in the year.
