A scout's take -- Mark Reynolds, Arizona Diamondbacks' 23-year-old third baseman

June 17, 2007

Offense -- He's an aggressive fastball hitter with power. He gets in trouble when he expands the zone and hacks away at breaking balls. He's got some work to do with hitting the breaking ball.

Defense -- I think he is going to stay at third base. He has adequate hands and he has done well there. He is pretty steady all around and it's going to be tough getting that job back from him.

Overall -- He is a similar type of player as [Washington's] Ryan Zimmerman, but he is not as good defensively as Zimmerman. They didn't expect him to get to this level this quickly. He's going to be a pretty good one.
