Reyes was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
Reyes spent two weeks with the major-league club and served mainly as utility depth during his time in Milwaukee. He went 1-for-11 with three runs, a stolen base, a walk and three strikeouts across seven games in the big leagues, and he should see more consistent playing time with the Triple-A club going forward. Kolten Wong (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Reyes went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's 7-4 win over Pittsburgh.
Reyes reached on an error and scored in the second inning. He added a leadoff single in the fourth, stole second and scored again on a Christian Yelich three-RBI double. The versatile Reyes is slashing .256/.256/.302 with no home runs, one RBI, six runs scored and two stolen bases across 43 plate appearances. The 27-year-old frequently serves as a defensive replacement.
The Brewers recalled Reyes from Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
Reyes faired decently in his first stint with Milwaukee this season, slashing .270/.270/.324 across 37 plate appearances. With Kolten Wong (oblique) landing on the 10-day injured list Friday, Reyes will rejoin the big club ahead of the game against Arizona.
The Brewers optioned Reyes to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Reyes posted a decent average after being called up April 26, hitting .270 in 37 at-bats. It was a completely empty average, however, as he failed to walk once and drove in just one run. That being said, Reyes' defensive versatility may earn him another stint on the big-league roster at some point in the future, if injuries create such an opening.
Reyes was recalled by the Brewers on Monday and will bat eighth and play third base against the Marlins.
Reyes hit just .229/.295/.368 in 89 games for the Pirates in 2018 and 2019 and did not get into a game last season. However, he's apparently set to play more of a role during his time with Milwaukee -- at least against lefties like Monday's starter for Miami, Trevor Rogers.
The Brewers reassigned Reyes to their minor-league camp Tuesday.
Reyes had been in contention for a utility role on the Brewers' Opening Day roster, but Milwaukee evidently felt that Daniel Robertson and Jace Peterson were better candidates for that job. The 27-year-old previously saw action at the big-league level with the Pirates in 2018 and 2019, posting a .664 OPS across 220 career plate appearances.
Reyes (suspension) signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Reyes missed all of the 2020 campaign after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. He was originally suspended for 80 games, but that suspension is now considered complete despite last season's schedule being shortened to 60 games. He won't necessarily be a favorite for a major-league roster spot in Milwaukee, even in a bench role, as he's a career .229/.295/.368 hitter through 89 games at the highest level.
The Pirates declared Reyes (suspension) a free agent Sunday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.
Shortly after Pittsburgh outrighted him off its 40-man roster in January, Reyes received an 80-game suspension following a positive test for a performance-enhancing substance. Assuming the Pirates' 60-game 2020 regular season counts toward his suspension, Reyes will have to sit out the first 20 games of the 2021 minor-league season before he's eligible to play again, likely with a new organization's Triple-A or Double-A affiliate.
Reyes was dealt an 80-game suspension without pay Wednesday after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Reyes was not invited to spring training after being outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on January 16. The 26-year-old struggled to produce offensively for the Pirates in 2019, slashing .203/.274/.322 with 39 runs scored and 36 RBI throughout 157 plate appearances.
Reyes cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Reyes was designated for assignment one week ago, and after going unclaimed while on waivers, he'll head to Pittsburgh's Triple-A affiliate. He should have a chance to surface in the big leagues sometime during the 2020 season after appearing in 71 games for the Pirates in 2019, hitting .203 with two home runs and 19 RBI.
Reyes was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Thursday.
Reyes spent the majority of the season in the majors last year, but he struggled to get things going as he slashed .203/.274/.322 with two home runs over 71 games. He now finds himself off the 40-man roster, and it's unclear whether another team will take a chance on him after he failed to generate much production in 2019.
Reyes (personal) is back in the lineup Friday against the Brewers.
Reyes had been away from the team since Tuesday to be with his wife and newborn child. He'll bat sixth and play left field Friday.
Reyes left the Pirates prior to Tuesday's 6-0 loss to the Mariners after his wife gave birth to the couple's first child, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Thanks to the expanded September roster, the Pirates won't have to place Reyes on the paternity list, though he'll still likely report back to the club after taking the normal 1-to-3 days off to spend time with his family. Before leaving the team, Reyes had fallen into a semi-regular role in the outfield while Starling Marte (wrist) has been unavailable.
Reyes will start in right field and bat sixth against the Cubs on Saturday.
He enjoyed the first three-hit game of his career Friday, missing the cycle by a home run. Reyes, who will be making just his fourth start in September, is slashing .231/.324/.431 with two homers in 74 plate appearances since being recalled in early August.
Reyes is starting in right field and batting sixth Saturday against the Reds.
Reyes will draw a rare start after hitting a walkoff single in Friday's contest. On the other hand, he hasn't experienced much success in 82 plate appearances with the Pirates this season, hitting just .171/.232/.263 across 82 plate appearances. Melky Cabrera will get the day off to make room for Reyes.
Reyes was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.
Reyes has performed very poorly in limited action for the Pirates this season, hitting .128/.190/.128 over 42 plate appearances. He'll fill a bench role during his time with the team.
Reyes (ankle) was activated off the 7-day injured list Thursday and went 0-for-3 with a run scored and a walk for Triple-A Indianapolis.
Reyes landed on the IL after suffering the ankle injury in mid-June and rejoined Indianapolis after a three-game rehab assignment with Low-A West Virginia. The 25-year-old has a .250/.294/.482 slash line with five home runs in 32 games at Triple-A.
Reyes exited Wednesday's game for Triple-A Indianapolis with an undisclosed injury, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Reyes exited Wednesday's game in the top of the first inning after suffering what looked like an ankle injury. In 30 games since being optioned to Triple-A, Reyes is slashing .267/.296/.495 with five homers and three stolen bases.
Reyes was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.
Reyes was sent down after hitting just .128/.190/.128 in 42 plate appearances. Kevin Newman (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Reyes will start in left field and will bat seventh Monday against the Cubs.
The right-handed-hitting Reyes will check into the lineup for the lefty-hitting Jason Martin, who heads to the bench with southpaw Jon Lester twirling for the Cubs. Reyes looks like he could be the preferred platoon mate for Martin with multiple outfielders on the Pirates' injured list at the moment, but that role is unlikely to afford the 25-year-old steady at-bats. He's logged just nine plate appearances through the Pirates' first eight games, collecting one hit.
