Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Recalled from alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes was recalled from the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield on Wednesday and should join the team for an afternoon workout, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Reyes has already dealt with the coronavirus this summer, and he'll now be summoned to help shore up a roster that's been significantly depleted for the time being due to the COVID infections of multiple players. The right-hander has reportedly been flashing impressive velocity during his bullpen sessions and live batting practices in Springfield, and it remains to be seen how he'll be deployed with the big-league club.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Fastball impressive in BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes' fastball sat at 95-99 mph during Wednesday's live batting practice at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

This is the latest report that supports the notion Reyes is on track for a potential call-up to the active roster in the near future. The right-hander's velocity Wednesday certainly seems to indicate he's worked off any potential rust stemming from a delayed arrival at summer camp earlier in July, and it remains to be seen how quickly the big-league club will opt to summon him.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Throwing live BP on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (illness) is scheduled throw live batting practice Wednesday at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Reyes and fellow hurler Genesis Cabrera have both been playing catch-up in Springfield after positive COVID-19 tests delayed their arrivals at summer camp. The right-hander was described as "progressing nicely" by manager Mike Shildt earlier in the week and has already thrown a pair of bullpen sessions that he's recovered well from. If the live BP session goes smoothly Wednesday, there's a chance, based on previous reports, that Reyes could be added to the big-league roster soon thereafter.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: 'Progressing nicely' in Springfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (illness) is getting good work in at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Reyes and fellow hurler Genesis Cabrera are both working in Springfield after late arrivals in summer camp due to positive COVID-19 tests. Reyes threw a bullpen session late last week according to manager Mike Shildt and has recovered well from it, leaving him poised to throw another no later than Monday. The right-hander could get a relatively quick promotion to the big-league club due to his ability to work multiple innings, but he'll need to face hitters in live batting practice first.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: COVID-19 responsible for absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes announced Saturday he was absent for the first couple weeks of summer camp because he tested positive for COVID-19, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The team never provided any reasoning for his absence due to privacy concerns, but the 25-year-old announced the positive test during a Zoom call with media Saturday. Reyes has since cleared MLB's coronavirus protocols and is now participating in workouts, but manager Mike Shildt previously indicated they won't rush the right-hander's build-up following his late arrival. Shildt also said that Opening Day "is gonna be a real challenge" for Reyes, and that he "wouldn't expect anything" from him, per Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Arrives at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (undisclosed) was on the field at Cardinals' camp Saturday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The 25-year-old made his way to St. Louis this week and is now apparently clear to participate in workouts after missing the first couple weeks of summer training. Manager Mike Shildt previously indicated the team won't rush Reyes following his absence from camp, so he may not be available early on with Opening Day less than a week away.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Camp arrival imminent?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (undisclosed) was described by manager Mike Shildt on Friday as "getting closer" to making his summer camp debut, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Reyes is in the St. Louis area, but he has yet to make a camp appearance for reasons that have not been revealed by the team. Even if the 25-year-old right-hander does manage to arrive in camp in the coming days as Shildt hinted, his readiness for the early portion of the regular season would be in serious question at this point, with the Cardinals skipper noting Friday the team wouldn't rush Reyes after the valuable preparation time he's missed. Reyes has been sidelined for significant time during his minor-league career due to injuries, but he was considered a top prospect at one point and could still work his way into high-leverage situations this coming season.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Still to participate in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes has not yet participated in any of the Cardinals' summer camp workouts, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Rogers confirms Reyes flew into St. Louis from Florida and not on an MLB charter flight from the Dominican Republic that included Genesis Cabrera and Elehuris Montero, who both have tested positive for COVID-19. The Cardinals did not hold a workout Monday due to a delay in coronavirus test results, so it's unknown if Reyes would have been available had the team taken the field at Busch Stadium.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: May fill multiple relief roles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes could potentially be utilized as both a middle- and high-leverage reliever during the 2020 season, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The talented 25-year-old took some lumps during Grapefruit League play (8.31 ERA), but he's still considered a versatile arm that may be particularly valuable during a truncated 2020 season. Manager Mike Shildt will have plenty of options to work with when it comes to his bullpen, and Reyes has both the starting experience and arm (96.8 mph average fastball) to potentially thrive in either the middle or late innings.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Could benefit from roster expansion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes could be a beneficiary of any roster expansion beyond 26 players for the 2020 season, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Reyes was optioned to Triple-A Memphis back on March 26 after a rocky Grapefruit League stint during which he posted an 8.31 ERA across a modest 4.1-inning sample. However, the unique conditions expected to be part of an abbreviated 2020 campaign -- a higher volume of double-headers and expanded rosters -- could represent ideal circumstances for a Reyes promotion. The right-hander has experience as both a starter and reliever, a level of versatility which Hummel points out would particularly enhance Reyes' chances of a promotion.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

This isn't overly surprising after Reyes struggled across four spring appearances, finishing with an 8.31 ERA, 2.54 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB across 4.1 innings. While the Cardinals have yet to clarify his role for 2020, the team figures to handle the oft-injured righty with caution after injuries plagued Reyes again in 2019, limiting him to just 40.1 innings across three levels.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Nabs save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes was credited with a save in a Grapefruit League win over the Twins on Monday, firing a scoreless ninth inning during which he allowed two hits and recorded two strikeouts.

Reyes' outing wasn't without some adversity, as he worked around a pair of singles. However, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports manager Mike Shildt came away impressed with the oft-injured right-hander's work, remarking that Reyes looked "uninhibited" on the mound after dealing with numerous physical issues the last several years.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Struggles in first spring outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes was unable to complete a full inning Tuesday in what was supposed to be a two-inning appearance, as he struggled with his command, Rob Rains of KSDK.com reports.

He walked two batters and allowed two hits while only retiring one of the five hitters he faced. Only half of his 24 pitches were strikes. He hit 95 mph with his fastball and threw a quality changeup, but he did not display starter-level command. The Cardinals would obviously like for their former top prospect to work his way into the rotation mix this spring, but he has not gotten off to a good start. He still has minor-league options remaining, so if his struggles continue, he may open the year at Triple-A.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Working on starter's schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes, who impressed during live batting practice Monday, is on a starter's schedule this spring and could be a candidate for one of two open spots in the Cardinals' starting rotation, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Following the news earlier Tuesday that Miles Mikolas could miss at least a month with a sore flexor tendon, the Cardinals officially have two open spots in the starting rotation behind the top trio of Jack Flaherty, Dakota Hudson and Adam Wainwright. Former ace Carlos Martinez and highly regarded South Korean import Kwang-Hyun Kim are considered the odds-on favorites for those roles, but Rogers notes a short-term stint as a starter might be an ideal way to acclimate the oft-injured but promising Reyes to the rigors of a big-league rotation.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Competing for relief job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes is expected to compete for a high-leverage role out of the Cardinals' bullpen during spring training, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

While Reyes stated earlier in the offseason that his long-term focus remains on becoming a regular member of the rotation, the Cardinals first want the talented righty to prove himself out of the bullpen before he's prepared to handle a more substantial workload as a starter. After injuries have ended his season early in each of the past three years, Reyes at least heads to spring training healthy, as he's spent most of the winter in the Dominican Republic throwing without restrictions. The 25-year-old made just four appearances in the majors in 2019, giving up five runs and walking six in three innings.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Set for healthy offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (pectoral) has checked out healthy and is set for a normal offseason, David Solomon of 590 the Fan reports.

Reyes hasn't had much good news on the health front lately, throwing a total of 67.1 innings over his last three seasons combined. He hasn't pitched since late June this year due to a strained pectoral muscle, but the issue is apparently behind him. It's hard to be too confident in his health giong forward given his recent struggles, but the fact that he won't have to be rehabbing over the offseason is certainly good news.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Shifting to offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (pectoral) has halted his 2019 in-season throwing program and will soon be shifting to a plan designed to prepare him for spring training, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

In the wake of a third straight injury-shortened season, Reyes will meet with Cardinals head physician Dr. George Paletta in coming days to set a winter workout plan. Reyes ultimately logged just 31 frames in 2019, with 28 of those innings coming at Triple-A Memphis. Finger and pectoral injuries were the culprits of his truncated campaign this time around, but Reyes has also dealt with shoulder troubles in the last two years. Reyes still isn't arbitration-eligible this offseason, so the team will have another year of evaluation time on him before he sees a bump in salary to some degree.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Still not in 'throwing mode'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (pectoral) remains without a timetable to resume a throwing program, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. "He's been evaluated a couple of different times, he's had a couple of different opinions," manager Mike Shildt said Sunday. "No one has seen anything different, necessarily. But Alex is not in a throwing mode. He's in a rehabilitation mode to get back to throwing."

Reyes last picked up a baseball Aug. 5, when he felt pain in his recovering pectoral area during a bullpen session. He was subsequently evaluated by the team's medical staff and encouraged to seek a second opinion after the exam failed to reveal any new injury. While there haven't been any granular details on the status of that follow-up evaluation, Shildt did confirm Sunday that Reyes is currently rehabbing at a team facility that is neither in Memphis or at Cardinals camp in Jupiter, Florida.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Seeking second opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes (pectoral) met with team doctors as scheduled Thursday and was encouraged to seek a second opinion regarding his injury, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The Cardinals' medical team found nothing else amiss with Reyes besides his existing pectoral strain during their examination Thursday, so he'll seek a second opinion based on the team's own recommendation. Manager Mike Shildt concedes Reyes' chances of returning to the majors this season aren't "overly favorable", but he's also not ruling out the possibility. The right-hander has now missed significant time in three straight seasons, with a 2017 UCL injury and right lat tendon surgery last season responsible for his two other injury-shortened campaigns.

Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Meeting with team doctors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reyes is traveling to St. Louis on Wednesday to meet with team doctors due to continuing pain in his shoulder/pectoral area, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The injury issues just keep coming for the beleaguered young righty. He threw a bullpen session Monday for the first time since straining his pectoral muscle in late June, but his arm evidently didn't respond well to the activity. More information on his eventual return timeline should become clearer after his doctor visit.
