2009 Less than a week after getting arrested in early April for a bar fight on his birthday, Al Reyes landed on the DL with a shoulder impingement, the first of two trips. The shoulder woes lowered his velocity several ticks, and the Rays DFA'd him in early August. The Mets kicked the tires but didn't use him, instead releasing him several weeks later.
2008 Reyes' peripherals were far superior to his ERA last year and far more reflective of his closer status. The problem for the Rays is that Reyes is a temporary fix; he'll be 37 in the season's second week, and by the time they're any good (and that's not too far away), he'll be pushing 40. The Rays almost dealt Reyes at last year's trading deadline, but they picked up his option for 2008, possibly in search of four more good months out of the pen and some better offers in July.
2005 He's averaged less than 30 league innings per season in his peripatetic decade-long career. Reyes has been ferried back and forth from triple-A to the majors for his entire career, but he's been occasionally effective when called upon. Certainly, he gave the Cards a nifty 12 innings last year. He's a capable option, but a better guy to stow away at Triple-A roster, in case of emergency in the big league pen.
2003 Believe it or not, Reyes has appeared in the majors in each of the last eight seasons. In 2002, it was for Pittsburgh, his fourth big league club. Reyes’s best pitch is his changeup; he’s really just a stopgap, but there are worse pitchers in plenty of big league bullpens. The Pirates liked him enough to sign him to a split contract for 2003.
2002 After Gregg Olson pitched his way off the roster, Reyes was summoned to Chavez Ravine and did journeyman's work for half a season. He has never really mastered his mechanics, and he has a tendency to open up a little bit on his delivery, which can result in what is technically called "Excessive Pitch Elevation." This causes things like "Whiplash" and "Losses." Still, he does have reasonable stuff and will be at least an option worth considering for a lot of clubs. His next stop may be in your town.
2001 His career ERA is 4.27, but he keeps getting caught in roster crunches. The Dodgers traded for Al Reyes solely because he had an option left and could be sent down to make room for Gregg Olson. Reyes is a sleeper closer candidate in the right situation.
2000 Picked up from the Brewers for Rocky Coppinger, he endeared himself to Ray Miller simply by not being overweight. His career ERA is 4.23 and he has struck out a batter per inning, so clearly he can help someone.
1999 Proved he was healthy by racking up 11 saves in winter ball in the Domincan Republic, then enjoyed his finest major league season. A good bit player in what was top to bottom one of the league’s best bullpens. Runner-up for most ridiculous facial hair in the majors (a sculpted trace beard), but his wife probably loves him anyways.
1998 Lost 1996 to a torn tendon in his pitching elbow, but the Brewers aren’t about to give up on him. He has a chance to expand his role with the trade of Mike Fetters.
1997 Reyes can absolutely pitch. The only question is his health. But don’t worry—Phil Garner will be watching over him. [Shudder.]
1996  Last year's Rule V pick, Reyes had 35 saves at Harrisburg in '94, then suffered an injured elbow with the Brewers.

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-09-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Any explanation on why Rays always to get hits on pick-ups and trades that don't seem great/good at on-set and turn into gems in long-run? Fernando Rodney and Jeff Keppinger are doing quite well in unexpected roles for them. It seems Rays always find gold in what now should be called "The Yearly Rays Reliever Reclamation Project"(Al Reyes, Juan Cruz, Joaquin Benoit, Rafael Soriano, Kyle Farnsworth, Fernando Rodney)
(jlarsen from chicago)
I think some of it is just great big-league scouting and statistical analysis, but a lot of it is trial and error, too. The Rays are set up in such a way that they HAVE to sign a bunch of those guys, and while a lot of them will work because the Rays are good at what they do, a lot will fail because they're inherently gambles. They haven't had a lot of luck with veteran catchers the last couple years, and there was that whole Pat Burrell thing. (Bill Parker)
2008-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any viable solution to the bullpen situation for the Mets? Guessing they're happy that the Phillies bullpen might be tiring a little bit down the stretch...
(Tim from Sonoma, CA)
I think Al Reyes could really help them. Unless I've missed the fact that he's hurt, or something, they should have him up by September 1. The problem with the Mets pen is that it's composed almost entirely of guys that are options against only one side of the plate: Smith, Schoeneweis, Feliciano, Heilman. (Caleb Peiffer)
