Dennys Reyes told Fernando Ballesteros of Puro Beisbol that he's still planning to pitch for the Orioles this season despite getting released this weekend.
Reyes suffered a torn tendon in his left middle finger while pitching in the Mexican Winter League and is still undergoing therapy. "They had to release me because they couldn't pay my contract with me being here (in Mexico)," Reyes said. "If they hadn't released me, I could have complained to the Player's Union in order to get them to pay me. Unofficially, I still belong to them." Tue, Mar 6, 2012 02:04:00 PM

Orioles released LHP Dennys Reyes.

Reyes had yet to report to Orioles camp due to visa issues, and the team evidently didn't want to wait for him any longer. The veteran left-hander will try to catch on with another organization once he makes it to the states.

Dennys Reyes and Ronny Paulino are both dealing with visa issues and have not yet reported to Orioles camp.

Both were signed to minor league deals this offseason that included invites to spring training. Once they get to camp, Reyes has an outside chance to make the club as a left-handed specialist, while Paulino will have to have a huge spring to win the backup catcher job.

Orioles signed LHP Dennys Reyes to a minor league contract.

Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com confirms that the deal includes a spring training invite. Reyes made four relief appearances with the Red Sox before being designated for assignment last April and didn't throw another pitch after being placed on the restricted list in May. The 34-year-old left-hander has a 4.21 ERA over 15 major-league seasons.

Red Sox placed LHP Dennys Reyes on the restricted list.

Details are scarce at this time, but Reyes reportedly returned to Mexico because he needed time at home. The veteran left-hander made the Red Sox out of spring training, but was designated for assignment following the first week of the season.

Red Sox sent LHP Dennys Reyes outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Reyes successfully cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last Friday. While the veteran southpaw didn't fare too well during his brief stay with the Red Sox, he's useful depth to have at the Triple-A level.

Dennys Reyes told the Red Sox before being designated for assignment Friday that he would be willing to report to Triple-A Pawtucket if he clears waivers.

He's unlikely to be claimed, so it sounds like he'll be at Pawtucket for a while. Though Reyes struggled in his short time with the Sox, he would give them solid, cheap depth from the left side of the bullpen.

Red Sox designated LHP Dennys Reyes for assignment.

He was abysmal in four outings for the Red Sox this season, posting a 16.20 ERA and 2.40 WHIP in 1 2/3 innings while allowing lefties to hit .333 against him. Set to turn 34 on April 19, the end could be near for the journeyman lefty specialist.

Dennys Reyes had a forgettable sixth inning Wednesday night, hitting two batters and walking a third on 12 pitches before getting pulled.

"I was going too quick to the plate," he said. "My arm was too far in front of my body. It was mechanical. I couldn't command my pitches." Reyes threw only one strike in the inning. Six of the 10 batters he has faced this season have reached base.

Red Sox purchased the contract of LHP Dennys Reyes from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Reyes entered camp on a minor league deal and had his opt-out clause extended a day so that the Sox could have more time to make a decision on the last couple spots in the bullpen. They've made the decision to keep him after he'd posted a 3.00 ERA with eight strikeouts over nine innings. It could mean that Hideki Okajima is slated to start the year in the minors, as the Red Sox reportedly only want to carry one lefty in the bullpen.
Sat, Mar 26, 2011 03:19:00 PM

Dennys Reyes has agreed to extend the opt-out date on his contract to Saturday.

The original out-out date was Friday. Reyes, who signed a minor league deal over the winter, is currently competing for one of the team's final bullpen spots. The veteran southpaw has has allowed just one run over eight innings this spring while striking out eight and walking three.

Dennys Reyes can opt out of his contract with the Red Sox on March 25.

Reyes has allowed just one run and five hits in seven innings of work this spring and will probably decide to stick around even if the Red Sox don't deem him ready for a big league spot immediately. The lefty had a hard enough time finding a minor league contract this winter.
Mon, Mar 21, 2011 09:41:00 AM

After throwing his second session of live batting practice on Thursday, Dennys Reyes has been deemed ready for game action.

He'll pitch against the Orioles on Saturday. A lefty specialist that let lefties tee off on him to the tune of .307 last season, Reyes may have a hard time nailing down a spot in Boston's stacked bullpen this spring.
Thu, Mar 3, 2011 05:01:00 PM

Dennys Reyes reported to Red Sox camp Saturday after resolving his visa issue.

The left-hander also revealed that he has an opt-out clause on March 26 if he's not guaranteed a spot on the major league roster. Reyes is probably the favorite to be the second lefty in the bullpen, assuming the Sox do carry two southpaws. He posted a 3.55 ERA and 25/21 K/BB ratio over 38 innings with the Cardinals last season.
Sat, Feb 26, 2011 09:06:00 AM

Dennys Reyes is expected to report to spring training on Saturday.

Reyes has been delayed due to visa issues in his native Mexico. When he finally gets to camp, Reyes will be in competition for a left-handed specialist spot during spring training. He's currently behind his competition. Reyes had a 3.55 ERA and 25/21 K/BB ratio over 38 innings with the Cardinals last season.
