2020 Fantasy Outlook
Reyes slugged 37 homers in just 548 plate appearances, but also fanned 28.5% of the time. A 99th percentile average exit velocity helped generate an average flyball distance of 349.4 feet, the sixth longest among hitters with at least 450 plate appearances. While Reyes may be able to hit the ball out of any yard, his best position is designated hitter. This isn't a problem after the Indians acquired Reyes from the Padres last summer. So long as Reyes continues to hit right-handers with authority (30 of his homers came in this scenario), he'll be in the lineup nearly every day, save for road interleague contests. Those with Reyes on their dynasty or keeper league roster, enjoy the current outfield eligibility; it may not be this way next season. If you can buffer a low batting average, Reyes is a great source of surprisingly cheap power as the market hasn't yet caught on to his potential. Read Past Outlooks

To be corner outfielder
OFCleveland Indians
March 26, 2020
Reyes is expected to open the year as a corner outfielder while Domingo Santana starts at designated hitter, MLB.com's Mandy Bell reports.
ANALYSIS
Reyes and Jordan Luplow are the frontrunners to start in the corner outfield spots, according to Bell, while Oscar Mercado is set to start in center field while Delino DeShields works as the fourth outfielder. Jake Bauers could also make the team as a fifth outfielder and Tyler Naquin (knee) could be healthy by the time the season starts, which would likely push Luplow to the short side of a platoon. Reyes came into camp 18 pounds lighter, and while he probably still won't be great in the outfield, Santana is one of the worst defensive outfielders in baseball, so this alignment makes sense if Cleveland is intent on starting Santana. Reyes has only ever started in right field and DH in his career.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
A big, powerful corner outfielder, Reyes successfully kicked the door down by mid-May, having hit 14 homers in his first 35 games with Triple-A El Paso. He got off to a bit of a rocky start in the majors, but once Reyes settled in, he was excellent. Over the final two months of the season, he hit .318/.385/.548 with six doubles and 10 homers in 49 games (157 at-bats). His 28.1% strikeout rate for the season is a bit of an eyesore, but his K-rate during that stretch run was just 21.8%. While regression to his 29.6% HR/FB should be expected, Reyes has borderline elite raw power, so it wouldn't be surprising if his mark were still over 20% in 2019. The only real question about Reyes in 2019 is playing time. He graded out as a poor defender in the corner and he's coming off a torn meniscus in late November. We'll bet that Reyes is a regular to start, but if he doesn't improve against righties (.247/.298/.449), he could be relegated to a short-side platoon role.
