Mike Bell, D-Backs Director of Player Development:
“He’s very strong. He’s got more life in his bat than I expected when I first saw him and met him. I thought I was going to see more of a defensive player that slaps the ball around the field. He drives the ball, he’s a plus defender. He was a leader on Mobile last year and has a certain way about him and I think people gravitate toward him. He’s a leader and I think he is an outstanding player.”

(Updated 7/5) Gabby Guerrero was the headlining prospect the Diamondbacks received in return from Seattle for Mark Trumbo last season but every time you mention the minor league system to someone in the D-Backs organization, Reinheimer is consistently one of the players mentioned with what he has done in the Pacific Coast League this season. His ability to hit the gaps for doubles and to score runs is fantastic and among the best of any in the organization in those two categories. There is plenty ahead of him with Lamb, Owings, Segura and Drury who can play the middle infield but eventually he is going to get his shot in the big leagues.
