COACH RITSCHE ON REYES:  Reyes finished with arguably the best overall single season in Rams baseball history in 2012.  German transitioned to second base early on last season which helped solidify a consistent middle infield for the Rams. “Reyes has the showmanship of a professional baseball player.  He definitely looks the part and has some above average tools.  Consistency is going to key for German at the plate and on defense this spring.  If he can put it all together he can have one incredible year for us.  I brought him in as a SS in 2011 but needed him in the OF at the end of the season due to some injuries.   He immediately transitioned and will most likely be back at second base to begin the 2013 season.  He’s an A student, hard worker and respectful kid that is a pleasure to have on my team.”
