Alex Reyes News
St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Alex Reyes (shoulder) needs surgery to fix a damaged labrum in his right shoulder, according to sources. Reyes experienced renewed soreness in his shoulder when throwing last week and was shut down indefinitely. The 27-year-old started the regular season on the 60-day injured list, and it now looks like he'll miss the entire 2022 season, although we'll have a better timetable on his recovery after he goes under the knife. At this point, Reyes might even be lucky if he's ready to go in time for next season. It's extremely disappointing after he made his first All-Star team last year when he recorded 29 saves, a 3.24 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP and 95 strikeouts in 72 1/3 relief innings for St. Louis. Giovanny Gallegos will continue to operate as the team's closer this season.
St. Louis Cardinals right-handed pitcher Alex Reyes (shoulder) experienced shoulder soreness during his throwing session this past week. As a result, he has been shut down from throwing. Reyes underwent an MRI and the team is currently seeking a second opinion on him. Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol stated that this development for Reyes was "very" discouraging. The 27-year-old has yet to make his 2022 debut. He was diagnosed with a frayed labrum prior to the start of the year and had been working his way back. With this recent development, it looks like Reyes could be missing much more time than we originally thought. We expect to have more clarity on Reyes' updated timeline soon.
St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Alex Reyes (shoulder) was diagnosed with a frayed labrum in his right shoulder and received a stem-cell injection from Dr. James Andrews. Reyes will not be allowed to throw for "at least" two weeks, so the Cardinals are expecting him to return in late May or early June. It's extremely disappointing news after the former top starting pitching prospect finally stayed healthy for a whole season in 2021 and recorded 29 saves on his way to his first All-Star appearance. He was once again expected to be a big part of the team's closing situation, but now Giovanny Gallegos, Genesis Cabrera and Ryan Helsley will be St. Louis' top options for the ninth inning to begin the year. Fantasy managers should have Gallegos as the top of their list of closing options for the Cardinals.
Alex Reyes picked up 29 saves in 2021 but is set to miss the first two to three months of the season with a shoulder injury that saw him placed on the 60-day IL. That leaves Reyes unable to return until June (more likely July), assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks. It's a blow for Reyes, coming off his first full season in which he tallied 72.1 IP, almost the same amount as he managed between 2016 2020 combined (72.2 IP). While Reyes was able to collect 29 saves last year, his career-long control issues remained. Coming into last season, Reyes had a career 14.7% BB% and things got worse in 2021 with a 16.4% BB% which was in the first percentile. His 30.0% K% was in the 87th percentile while his .185 xBA and .304 xSLG ranked in the 95th and 96th percentile, respectively. When Reyes returns from his shoulder injury, it remains to be seen if Reyes can regain the closer role which he lost late last year. The Cardinals should be contending for a playoff spot and have no shortage of closing options so it's unlikely Reyes will be able to just return straight back into the late innings role regularly, if at all. Especially if his control issues don't get addressed.
