The Cardinals announced on Wednesday that Reyes underwent an MRI on Tuesday and will need Tommy John surgery.
That team is the St. Louis Cardinals, and the pitcher that they've lost for the season is young phenom Alex Reyes. The Cardinals were expected big contributions from Reyes, even if he wasn't going to throw 200 innings. While Weaver's velocity is certainly not a problem-his fastball topped out at 96.4 miles per hour past year and averaged 91.9 MPH-Alex Reyes's fastballs, both of the two and four-seam varieties, topped out over 100 MPH in 2016, while each averaged over 96.More news: Pittsburgh Public Schools students protest confirmation of US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos
YANKEES: Joe Girardi, who is starting his 10th season as New York's manager, said he wants to lead the team beyond 2017. He struck-out 52 batters after fanning 93 across 14 minor league starts. Michael Wacha and Mike Leake were expected to battle Reyes for the final rotation spots. He's an exceptionally hard thrower who can hit triple digits with his fastball, and Baseball Prospectus recently named Reyes as the top overall prospect in all of baseball.
"I'm concerned about Reyes". The Cardinals eliminated the Dodgers in 2013 and 2014, the first two seasons of L.A.'s four-year reign over the NL West.
Reyes, 22, is considered one of the top pitching prospects in baseball.
