Injured no more, Reyes believes '20 is the year

When Alex Reyes showed up to Spring Training in early February, pitching instructor and former Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter pulled him aside. He wanted to share some advice with the Cardinals’ former top prospect who was coming off his first healthy offseason in three years.

“He just said, ‘You go out there on the mound and forget about any expectations,’” Reyes recalled. “Forget about everything. It’s pretty much whatever you have in your control, go out and show it. Don't feel like you have to prove yourself, just be you and you’ll be fine.”
His first outing wasn't too impressive but it is still early.

Yet another FA relief pitcher going down the drain. It's been a real issue for years.


Cardinals' Andrew Miller mystified after losing feel for pitches

Andrew Miller has lost control, and neither he nor the Cardinals know why.
The two-time All-Star and 2016 ALCS MVP with Cleveland will be sidelined for an undetermined amount of time as he tries to regain the feel for his pitches.
"The sensation I have throwing a baseball now just isn't consistent with what it is when I know I'm good," Miller said.
Miller struggles to describe the feeling he experiences when releasing the ball. It's not pain. There's no burning or tingling. It simply doesn't feel right.
Scheduled to pitch in relief on Monday, Miller cut short his warm-up after several tosses badly missed his target.
"I wasn't worried about hurting myself," Miller said. "The stuff that's been bothering me and I've been trying to work through, it just wasn't getting better."
That outing followed a wild Grapefruit League debut Friday during which Miller allowed one run in one inning while hitting two batters, including Tim Tebow.

Well, thankfully we have a lot of pitchers in the stable. I have no idea what to expect from Reyes. I shouldn’t get my hopes up.

Bit of a bizarre story coming out of Jupiter. Reserve IF/OF Yairo Munoz, who was scheduled to get an exam on a hamstring injury he suffered earlier this week, decided to fly back to his home in the Dominican Republic without informing the team that he was going to do so. So after he no-showed the exam, the team decided to release him this morning.

Cardinals radio and TV are doing their best to bridge the gap in content during this time. KMOX will air every game from the Cardinals miracle run in 2011 starting from the August 25th game when they were 10.5 games back all the way through game 7 of the World Series (which totals up to 50 games). Though I haven't seen a date as to when they're starting this, they will have a pregame show every day which will start at 6:15 PM Monday-Friday, 6:00 PM on Saturday, and Noon on Sunday.

Fox Sports Midwest will be playing select games from the 2019 season starting tonight and off and on over the next 10 days. The game they are showing tonight is the September comeback against the Cubs at Wrigley when Molina and DeJong hit back to back home runs in the 9th off Kimbrel.
