Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Shoulder surgery scheduled
Reyes will undergo shoulder surgery at the end of May, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Reyes has been dealing with shoulder issues since at least mid-March, and while he resumed throwing in late April he was shut down again in mid-May. The surgery is expected to end his 2022 campaign, though the Cardinals have stopped short of officially ruling him out for the year.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Expected to require surgery
Reyes is expected to require surgery on his right shoulder to repair a damaged labrum, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Reyes was shut down from throwing in mid-May after he experienced renewed shoulder soreness, and he'll meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Monday before a final decision is made on surgery. It's not yet clear whether a potential surgery would be a season-ending procedure, but it seems like a safe bet that he would at least be unavailable until late in the 2022 campaign. The shoulder issue is yet another big hit for a pitcher who had been a top-flight prospect back in 2016 before injuries derailed his long-term outlook and forced a full-time conversion to the bullpen....

Reyes (shoulder) experienced renewed soreness when throwing this week and has been shut down, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
The 27-year-old resumed throwing in late April after beginning the season on the 60-day injured injured list, but he'll halt his rehab program after the soreness cropped up. Reyes underwent an MRI and is seeking a second opinion, leaving his availability for the rest of the season in question.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Plays catch
Reyes (shoulder) played catch at Busch Stadium on Saturday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Reyes hit the 60-day injured list in late March due to a shoulder issue which had bothered him since the start of camp. While it's certainly a positive to see him throwing in some capacity, there are still several steps between playing catch from 60 feet and pitching in a major-league game.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Placed on 60-day injured list
Reyes (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday.
Reyes finally had a healthy season last year and finished with 29 saves and a 3.24 ERA, but he apparently won't be able to stay healthy two years in a row. He's been dealing with a shoulder issue all spring and received a stem-cell injection in mid-March. Previous reports indicated he'd be out until late May at a minimum, but he'll now be ineligible to return before early June.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Signs one-year deal
Reyes (shoulder) agreed to a one-year, $2.85 million contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Reyes and the Cardinals were able to agree on a salary for 2022 without requiring an arbiter.

Reyes received a stem-cell injection in his throwing shoulder Friday and will have about a month to rest before starting a throwing program.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Shut down for two weeks
Reyes (shoulder) will be shut down from throwing for two weeks after receiving an injection in his right shoulder Wednesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Reyes is dealing with some shoulder soreness to open camp and underwent an MRI earlier this week, and it's now confirmed he won't be ready for the start of the regular season. Once cleared to start a throwing program, the 27-year-old will remain at the Cardinals' extended spring training site as he ramps up his workload. He's set to at least miss the first few weeks of the season, leaving Giovanny Gallegos and Genesis Cabrera to potentially split closing duties.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Facing extended absence
Reyes was diagnosed with a frayed labrum in his right shoulder Friday and is expected to be sidelined until at least late May, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Reyes will be shut down from throwing for at least the next two weeks after receiving an injection of stem cells, and he's set to work out at the Cardinals' extending spring training once cleared to start his throwing program. The 27-year-old was expected to be a piece of St. Louis' closer committee to open 2022, but he'll instead start out on the injured list. Giovanny Gallegos and Genesis Cabrera should split save opportunities in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Receiving injection
Reyes (shoulder) will receive an injection in his right shoulder Wednesday, Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com reports.
Reyes dealt with right shoulder soreness to begin spring training and will be further delayed following his injection. The right-hander plans to rejoin the team at camp Friday and hopes to have a better idea of his status at that point. The right-hander recorded 29 saves last year, but manager Oliver Marmol suggested Wednesday that the team won't have a set closer to begin the regular season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. As a result, Reyes could form a committee with Giovanny Gallegos (personal) and Genesis Cabrera once he's healthy.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Undergoes MRI
Reyes underwent an MRI on his sore right shoulder Tuesday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Reyes finally had a healthy season last year and wound up with 29 saves and a 3.24 ERA, but it looks as though he may not be so lucky this season. For now, he and the Cardinals are treating his issue as merely lingering soreness from last season, but the results of the MRI could potentially reveal a more serious injury.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Yet to throw off mound
Reyes (shoulder) has yet to throw off a mound this winter, so he'll be behind the rest of his teammates even if cleared by team doctors, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Reyes avoided the injured list last season and went on to record 29 saves with a 3.24 ERA. His shoulder issues may be nothing more than the lingering effects of finally throwing a full season last year, as his 72.1 innings weren't far from the total of 87 frames he threw over the previous four years combined....

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: May be delayed
Reyes underwent an extensive review of his shoulder by team doctors Monday to determine whether or not he could start spring training on time, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The results of the review are not yet known. The 27-year-old finally had an injury-free season last year and recorded 29 saves with a 30.0 percent strikeout rate and a 3.24 ERA, though he also walked 16.4 percent of opposing batters. Reports from last season indicated that the Cardinals planned on Reyes pushing for a rotation role this season, but it's possible he remains in the bullpen if the team doesn't think his arm can handle the increased workload....
