Cardinals right-handed pitching prospect tossed a seven-inning complete game, scattering two hits and two walks while striking out seven batters for Low-A Peoria on Wednesday.
Peoria played a doubleheader against the Kane County Cougars, and teams only play seven innings during each game of a double header. Reyes got shelled in his last outing, allowing seven hits and two walks in 3 2/3 innings, so it's great to see a good performance, even if Kane County is light on prospect talent. Despite growing up in New Jersey, Reyes lived with family in the Dominican Republic for a year in order to circumvent the draft, signing for $950,000 in late 2012. He has the potential to be a solid No. 2 pitcher who uses his mid-90s fastball, hard-snapping curve ball, and above-average change-up to dominate hitters.
