2010 Fantasy Baseball Projections
Four straight seasons with a virtual clean bill of health ... then, 2009. When Jose Reyes is injured, he stays injured. Overactive thyroid clouds picture and means he won't be useful for undetermined period. Reality: This can be controlled and is only discouraging because it affects his availability for conditioning. That emphasizes this: His legs are still bigger issue. Improvements in power peripherals make him dynamic, but value is derived from speed; any ill effect or redux means loss of impact on base paths. Worth the risk when the price is appreciably lower - outside the first four or five mixed rounds - because drafters may overreact to thyroid news. Reyes is just not a foundation pick.
