Within an hour the community narrowed down where Reyes was going and who would be starting Sunday.

Any hope Reyes is going to get a start next week? Could very well hinge on how Weaver does on Sat I suppose.

I am wondering this myself .... I wasted my #2 waiver pick in a 16 team rotisserie league. I was hoping he would join the rotation

He looked utterly unhittable, and command was excellent save for the lone walk. Basically threw only fastballs and changeups the whole game with a couple hammers mixed in. Check out the Javier Baez K for a good laugh (100.4 MPH fastball)... it will be a classic gif by the end of the week.

Can anyone find a link for this?

 

edit: found it at the 7:30 mark of the condensed game. Lol

What I've seen, which is not a whole lot to be honest, this guy will be a star...A surprise to nobody around here. Some can throw 100, but the key is does it have movement, and does the pitcher have a clue where it's going. I'll admit, I'm a little puzzled Reyes had so many walks in the minors.  Regardless, Reyes will be starting this season. Soon.

 

Oh yeah, doesn't Reyes throw a knuckle curve? I'm pretty sure I saw him gripping the ball with his knuckle. That pitch drops right off the table. Regardless, nasty!

I am of the opinion that he's better suited for the pen for this year, in terms of actual need for the cardinals.

 

you _may_ see a spot start later in the year if Lynn comes back since lynn will most likely go to the bullpen, but honestly i wouldn't bank on reyes making any starts this year.

 

as a side note, should the cards make the one game playoff, reyes would be a sneaky start for them in that particular game.

Alex Reyes - R -  Cardinals

Alex Reyes will make his first major league start on Saturday in place of Mike Leake who is dealing with shingles.

The 21-year-old right-hander has been impressive in his time out of the Cardinals bullpen, posting a 13/4 K/BB ratio over 9 1/3 scoreless innings. He's worthy of a look in all formats for as long as he's in the rotation.
 
 
 
 
 
What do we think he can do tomorrow?

it's wild to see a guy like Mike Fiers put everything he's got into a 93mph fastball, then Reyes comes along and effortlessly fires a sizzling 99 while looking like a kid gliding a paper airplane off the porch. secondary stuff looked good from what I saw, too. It's not quite the same "holy smokes" stuff that we saw with young Jose Fernandez, but I'm not sure it's too far off.
