Reyes fired a scoreless seventh inning during which he issued a walk and recorded two strikeouts in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
The talented closer had only logged two appearances since June 1, so manager Mike Shildt opted to get him some work in a non-save situation Saturday. Reyes' fantasy value has been hurt by a lack of save opportunities recently, but he's still sporting an elite 0.87 ERA and 32.8 percent strikeout rate across 29 appearances.
Reyes (3-2) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Reds after allowing one run on one hit and a walk while fanning two across one inning.
Reyes was tasked with pitching the ninth inning in a 7-7 tie, and he was tagged with the loss after allowing a homer to Jesse Winker, who went deep three times in the game. The right-hander ended a streak of four scoreless appearances, but he still owns an excellent 0.90 ERA on the season.
Reyes saved Tuesday's 3-2 victory against the Dodgers, allowing no runs on one hit and one walk with one strikeout in the ninth inning.
Reyes was called upon after St. Louis took a one-run lead in the top of the ninth and delivered his 16th save, good for second in baseball. The Cardinals' closer owns a microscopic 0.62 ERA, though his 1.38 WHIP -- the result of a startling 26 walks in 29 innings -- is cause for some concern.
Reyes pitched the ninth inning of Saturday's 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks, allowing a hit and a walk with two strikeouts in a scoreless inning.
Reyes entered the ninth with a three-run lead and allowed the first two batters to reach base but retired the next three to secure the save. He's been one of the most electric relievers in the game with 12.5 K/9 but also sports a high WHIP of 1.36.
Reyes (3-1) walked one and struck out one in a scoreless inning, earning the win Thursday versus Arizona.
The closer was brought in to pitch the bottom of the ninth in a tied game. Reyes became the pitcher of record when Yadier Molina hit an RBI double in the 10th, and Daniel Ponce de Leon was able to convert the save. The 26-year-old Reyes has a 0.67 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 37:24 K:BB across 27 innings this year. He's converted all 14 of his save chances despite an ugly 8.0 BB/9 mark.
Reyes (2-1) lost Sunday's 2-1 match with Chicago, pitching one inning and allowing two runs (one earned) on one hit and two walks with two strikeouts.
Reyes entered a scoreless game in the tenth and surrendered a Javier Baez two-run home run before walking two Cubs, but he was able to strike out the next two batters to limit any further damage. The run was only the second Reyes has given up all season, and he remains one of the game's best closer options thanks to a 0.72 ERA and 12.5 K/9.
Reyes earned the save against the Cubs on Saturday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he gave up one hit and struck out one batter.
The right-hander yielded a two-out infield single but was otherwise both effective and efficient in the outing, getting through the ninth inning on 13 pitches (eight of which were strikes). Reyes has been a revelation in his first full-time stint as a closer, going 14-for-14 in save chances and registering a minuscule 0.38 ERA across 24 innings. His 1.25 WHIP and 7.5 BB/9 suggest that the ERA is buoyed by some good fortune, but it's hard to argue with the overall results.
Reyes gave up a hit and struck out the side in the ninth inning Wednesday to record his 13th save of the season in an 8-5 win over the Pirates.
The right-hander flashed better control in this one, tossing 11 of 15 pitches for strikes and not issuing a free pass for the first time in six appearances. Walks are the only blemish on Reyes' line so far this season, however, as he's a perfect 13-for-13 on save chances with a 0.39 ERA and 31:20 K:BB through 23 innings.
Reyes walked one in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his 12th save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Pirates.
The 26-year-old continues to roll as the Cards' closer. Reyes has yet to blow a save this season and has only been scored upon once in 20 appearances, leading to a 0.41 ERA accompanied by a 28:20 K:BB through 22 innings. That walk rate is a concern, but he's been almost unhittable so far this year.
Reyes pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three to get the save in the Cardinals' win over the Brewers on Thursday.
Reyes walked the first batter he faced in the ninth inning and allowed a runner to get into scoring position, but he ultimately struck out three for his 11th save of the season. He trails only Mark Melancon for most saves in all of baseball. The 26-year-old has allowed just one run in 20 innings this season.
Reyes allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out three over 1.2 innings to earn the save Saturday versus Colorado.
The 26-year-old didn't surrender a run through his first 15 appearances of the season, but he entered with runners on base during the eighth inning and walked a batter who came around to score. The right-hander returned for the ninth inning and promptly struck out the side. Reyes has converted all 10 of his save opportunities and has a 0.53 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 19:13 K:BB through 17 innings this season.
Reyes pitched a perfect seventh inning, striking out one to record the save during a win over the Mets in Game 1 of a doubleheader Wednesday.
Reyes' nine saves tie him with Ian Kennedy for second in all of baseball. The 26-year-old is always a risk to issue multiple free passes, but even with 12 walks in 15.1 innings, he is a perfect 9-for-9 in save situations.
Reyes walked two in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his eighth save of the season in a 6-5 win over the Mets.
The right-hander threw only eight of his 20 pitches for strikes in a nervous outing, but he was able to escape the jam he created. Reyes has yet to give up a run or blow a save through 14 appearances this season, but his 15:12 K:BB in 14.1 innings makes his position as closer perhaps a little more tenuous than his surface stats would indicate.
Reyes struck out one in a perfect ninth inning to earn the save against the Pirates on Sunday.
Reyes needed only 12 pitches to get through Sunday's outing, and he earned his seventh save of the year by retiring all three of the batters he faced.

Reyes (1-0) was credited with the victory in an extra-inning win over the Phillies on Thursday, firing two perfect innings during which he recorded three strikeouts.
The right-hander was refreshingly sharp, getting his six outs on 25 pitches, 18 of which found the strike zone. Reyes has made it virtually impossible for manager Mike Shildt to remove him from high-leverage duties -- and the closer's role specifically -- by firing 12.1 scoreless frames and going 6-for-6 in save opportunities across his first 12 appearances. Reyes has also now stayed away from issuing free passes entirely in back-to-back outings for the first time all season, an encouraging development considering his still-elevated 19.2 percent walk rate.
Reyes picked up his sixth save of the year with a scoreless ninth inning against the Phillies, giving up one hit while recording a pair of strikeouts.
Reyes had a strong outing, as he struck out two batters and didn't surrender a walk for the first time in his last four appearances. The 26-year-old is third in MLB with six saves and somehow still sports an unblemished ERA despite posting an 11:10 K:BB and 1.55 WHIP over 10.1 innings.
Reyes walked two batters and allowed a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Sunday, striking out one and earning a save over the Reds.
Reyes worked himself into a bases-loaded jam but managed to escape without any damage. He threw just 11 of his 25 pitches for strikes, and it was his second straight outing with control issues during a save opportunity. Still, he's a perfect 5-for-5 in save chances with a 0.00 ERA through 9.1 innings.
Reyes earned the save against Cincinnati on Friday, striking out two and walking two over two-thirds of an inning.
Reyes was far from sharp in the outing, throwing only 10 of 23 pitches for strikes and walking a pair. He allowed a pair of inherited runners to score -- one on a bases-loaded walk and the other on a wild pitch. However, the right-hander did enough to extend his season-opening scoreless streak to 8.1 innings while picking up his fourth save. Reyes has treaded in dangerous waters with an 8:8 K:BB, but he has all four of the Cardinals' saves this season and looks to be locked into the closer role for the time being.
Reyes, who logged a scoreless eighth inning against the Nationals in his most recent appearance Wednesday, hasn't seen a save opportunity since April 8.
The hard-throwing right-hander is 3-for-3 in save opportunities and still sports an unblemished ERA through eight appearances, so he's done everything within his power to reward fantasy managers. However, the Cardinals' only three victories since Reyes' last save chance have come by 11, five and seven runs.
Reyes fired a scoreless ninth inning in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday, allowing no hits and a walk with a strikeout and a wild pitch.
Despite the somewhat busy final line, Reyes still threw only 16 pitches while appearing in his first game action since last Thursday. The hard-throwing right-hander carries an unblemished ERA through five appearances, three which have culminated in saves.
