Cardinals prospect Alex Reyes has partial tear in elbow

Doyle BarkerFeb 16, 2017

Thankfully, the Cardinals weren't depending on Reyes to be a top-of-the-rotation guy this season. Learn all about it from Scout Fantasy's Triple Threat Adam Ronis! Gonzales is coming off Tommy John surgery himself, and will be closely watched by the Cardinal coaches. Reyes, 22, will be seeking a second opinion, but these things nearly always result in surgery being inevitable. "It was just kind of a pain throughout my elbow that I haven't felt before".

Reyes is a dominant prospect who has a fastball that touches 100 miles per hour, he made his major league debut August 9 and was 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA in five starts and seven relief appearances.

Reyes, 22, was considered a top NL rookie of the year candidate after a dazzling debut for St. Louis late last season. The 25-year-old dealt with a recurrence of a shoulder issue last season while struggling to the tune of a 5.09 ERA and 114/45 K/BB ratio over 138 innings.

St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Alex Reyes got an MRI Tuesday afternoon over concerns about soreness in his throwing elbow. Michael Wacha is coming off an bad season and has shoulder issues. Mozeliak said the team would react Wednesday after learning the results of the scan. I recently took Wacha in Round 30 of a 15-team draft champions league to give you an idea of his current value.

Trevor Rosenthal, a former closer, will be given an opportunity to start in the spring, but the pitcher to keep on the radar and consider drafting in the final few rounds is Luke Weaver. The Cardinals expect him to be ready for the start of the season. He spent some time in relief, but started five games, including a brilliant outing against the San Francisco Giants on September 18 in which he pitched seven shutout innings, giving up just four hits and two walks.
