This was our first opportunity to see Reina, in quite some time, as he is the starting QB for St. Louis HS.  Reina turned in a respectable 7.12 in the 60, which should even be better come spring/summer time.  During the INF portion of the day, Reina caught everything clean with athletic actions moving through the baseball and showed good arm strength across the diamond by recording an event best 86 mph INF velocity.  Reina also took a good BP round, consistently making hard contact.  "More than the sum of his parts" would be the best way to describe Reina, as he's a guy that college coaches are going to want to get out and see come March 1, because he plays above his tools in game.
