10/08/17 Rea continued to display solid swing mechanics demonstrated at previous events. Sets up neutral and works well away from hands with stride while staying neutral. Head is still with good balance and leverage to swing. Bat is on plane throughout hitting zone and hands work directly to baseball. There is subtle tendency to start hands slightly early which may be reducing separation and bat speed. Recorded bat exit velocity of 80 mph.

Defensively, displays soft, quiet hands in receiving and framing. Excellent lateral agility and blocking technique are present. Arm strength of 69 mph out of crouch plays up to pop times of 2.04 - 2.06 due to to quick hands and feet as well as clean transfer and short throwing motion.

9/9/17 5-foot-9, 160-pound backstop displayed above average receiving and blocking skills during game action. Showcased quick feet and a clean exchange leading to pop times of 2.06-2.15 with 70 mph arm strength from the crouch. Right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and utilizes a lift-and-replace stride to initiate his swing. Barreled the baseball consistently during batting practice and registered a 78 mph bat exit velocity while putting together several solid at bats during game action.

7/26/17 5-foot-9, 160-pound right-handed hitter initiates swing from neutral set up with short stride staying neutral. Good separation is achieved through weight shift and hip turn away from hands. Head is still and there is good balance and rhythm to swing.  Hands are loose and direct to baseball. Rea gets bat on plane early and maintains throughout hitting zone with ability to use all fields and cover whole plate.  Bat exit speed of 77 mph does not jump off page. However, swing mechanics are solid and bat speed should improve with continued physical maturation.
Defensively, good framing and blocking skills were noted. Clean transfer, quick feet and short throwing motion allow 71 mph arm strength to play up to pop times of 1.99 - 2.16.
