Reyes labeled ‘must-see’ AFL prospect
Baseball America reported Monday that St. Louis Cardinals prospect Alex Reyes is considered a “must-see” when he pitches for the Surprise Saguaro in the Arizona Fall League.
BA says the righthander is “generating a buzz not seen in the AFL since Mike Trout and Bryce Harper were on the same roster in 2011.” The Reyes report, which you can read here, includes comments from the Surprise pitching coach and a talent evaluator.
Reyes pitched for the Peoria Chiefs in 2014, going 7-7 with a 3.63 ERA, 137 strikeouts and 61 walks in 109 innings (21 starts). He split most of the 2015 season between High-A and Double-A, cumulatively going 5-7 with a 2.49 ERA, 151 strikeouts and 49 walks in 101.1 innings (22 starts).
