BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 After Reyes lost the last few weeks of 2008 to a sore elbow, the problem returned just eight starts into 2009. His velocity dropped in each of his starts, and in his final appearance he was having trouble feeling the ball and had no idea where it was going. The hopeful solution to his problems is reconstructive surgery to his ulnar collateral elbow which will sideline him at least until mid-season, but possibly for the entire 2010 campaign; the Tribe non-tendered him in December, but re-signed him to a minor-league deal.
2009 Reyes simply did not get along with Dave Duncan and Tony La Russa. The USC-educated righty views himself as a high-fastball power pitcher, while Duncan insisted he work down in the zone with two-seamers. The philosophical divide led the Cards to jerk him up and down from Triple-A and back and forth between the rotation and bullpen before they finally shipped him to Cleveland for two tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (and minor league reliever Luis Perdomo). Reyes came to the Indians with a bounce in his step and a twinkle in his eye—or at least pitched like he did, allowing no more than two runs in any of his six starts before a sore elbow shut him down in September. The MRI was clean, and Reyes is set to begin a successful run as the Tribe's third or fourth starter.
2008 Assigning wins and losses to pitchers is an archaic practice. What makes it problematic is that the people making decisions for $200 million businesses used said archaic practice to guide them. Reyes opened last year with seven starts in which he went five or six innings and allowed four or fewer runs, work for which he was assigned a record of 0-6. His ERA of 5.08 was actually good for a fifth starter, but the Cards had scored eight runs total in those seven games, and Walter Johnson wouldn't have been better than 3-4 with that support. With the pressure of "oh-and" rising, Reyes struggled in his next two outings and was sent to Memphis so that retread Todd Wellemeyer could start for a while. Reyes returned for two bad starts and one good one when Looper got hurt in June, dropping to 0-10 in a rain-shortened game in which he threw five good innings and his teammates got shut out for the fifth time in his 12 starts; he was again demoted. Wellemeyer watched his new teammates score 48 runs in his first six starts, and won every one. Reyes returned in July and was okay over seven starts (4.25 ERA, 25/12 K/BB, 2-3), but a sore shoulder limited him down the stretch. When healthy, Reyes is a command guy with third-starter stuff, same as he was a year ago. The only reason he was demoted was the Cards' offensive incompetence and the front office's inability to separate his work from his teammates' work. In the 21st century, with all of the information available, this kind of thing shouldn't happen.
2007 Reyes seemed like somebody who was going to hit the ground running once he landed in the majors. That it didn`t quite happen that way is no reason to think he won`t pick up speed after a not-too-exhilarating 2006. The extent of his struggles was reflected in the Cardinals` decision to ship him to Memphis despite having to cope with a rotation that included the overly-generous Marquis and the damaged Mulder. To keep expectations realistic, imagine the 2007 version of Reyes to be something between the pitcher who only got past the sixth inning in three of his 17 starts and the man who shut the Tigers down in Game One of the World Series.
2006 The Cardinals hope he`s ready to take the role of #2 starter. We`ll have to see-despite a hot 2005, Reyes had some serious arm injuries in college. He`s got solid stuff, particularly a reliably low-90s fastball, slider, and change, and he used that assortment to strike out better than one man per inning last year to finish second in the PCL in K/9. He`ll have plenty of opportunities to stick this spring, because the Cardinals` rotation consists of one stud, one solid guy, and a bunch of question marks. Reyes can also expect great run support from the Cards` high-octane offense, so some gaudy win totals aren`t out of the question if the elbow problems don`t come back, or if the shoulder, which has troubled him from time to time as a pro, doesn`t explode.
2005 Here's one to keep an eye on. Reyes fought through a number of elbow problems while pitching at USC, so those concerns will forever loom. Still, the numbers from his first pro season were incredible. Pitching between Palm Beach and Double-A Tennessee, in 111 innings Reyes struck out 140 and walked only 20, a 7:1 strikeout to walk ratio. Even with those peripherals, his hit rates were somewhat elevated, but there's no ignoring that kind of command indicator. He boasts a tough slider and low-90s fastball, and at this juncture looks like a future difference maker.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-02-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Indians count on anything from Anthony Reyes this season? Maybe 'count on' is bad wording - 'be optimistic about' at least?
(ChuckR from Addison, IL)
I think so. He's a talented pitcher who just needed a change of scenery. I thought the Indians made a great trade in getting him for next to nothing. (John Perrotto)
2008-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you heard any updates on whether Aaron Laffey and/or Anthony Reyes will be ready for Spring Training? Reyes' shutdown seemed precautionary and less serious, but I'm not convinced Laffey will even pitch in 2009.
(buffum from Austin TX)
Both expected to be ready for Spring Training. I was about to say Winter Haven, but that's not right any more. I can't imagine how many times I'm going to say "Dodgertown" this spring. (Will Carroll)
2008-10-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Homer Bailey is worthless right now... I'd look at whatever the Indians gave for Anthony Reyes. Maybe Bailey fetches a little more but not much.
(Yanick from Brooklyn)
Very good point. The Tribe gave up an oldish minor-league reliever named Luis Perdomo - live arm, but only in Double A at age 24. Christina Kahrl hit this well here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=7866#SLN (Jay Jaffe)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance the Cards pick up the lefty reliever for whom Tony La Russa seems to be pining? What do you think are the chances that Mark Mulder pitches effectively at the big league level again? Less than 50%?
(P Bu from St. Louis)
Yeah, I think so. I was surprised they didnt get that in return for Anthony Reyes, but his stock had dropped so much they were lucky to get anything. (I can't find this, but didn't the Cards and Indians talk about a Reyes for Cliff Lee deal?) Mulder? Less than 50. 20? (Will Carroll)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?name=winter_meetings&entryID=3140986 4:13 p.m., from Jerry Crasnick • Chris Capuano isn't the only left-handed starter on the Cardinals' shopping list. St. Louis has talked to Cleveland about Cliff Lee, with Anthony Reyes and/or catching prospect Bryan Anderson mentioned as possibilities to return to the Indians. Arizona recently talked to the Indians about Lee, but the teams don't look like a match anymore now that the Diamondbacks have traded outfielder Carlos Quentin to the White Sox.
(SC from Rochester)
Crasnick! Love that guy - knew I'd seen it somewhere, but I'm not an INsider, so much not be Googlable. (Is that a word?) (Will Carroll)
2008-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Oliver Perez for Anthony Reyes?
(WhatDude77 from Roslyn, NY)
Done. (Dayn Perry)
2008-04-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Anthony Reyes in the bullpen? He's pitched well so far, and velocity is way up.
(MikeJordan23 from BK)
When I watched him pitch a few times last year, Reyes was always the sort of guy who -- I don't know, was like a good character actor who was struggling to find the right script. I can see him working pretty effectively out of the bullpen. (Nate Silver)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the Cardinals offering Chris Duncan, Anthony Reyes and your choice of Wellemeyer, Thompson or Jiminez for Tom Gorzelany?
(Jack from (Charleston, WV))
As much as I really, really like Gorzelanny, that's too much to give up. But then I can't shake the anticipation I have of seeing the Cards line up a trio of lefty-hitting howitzers in their outfield at some point: Rick Ankiel, Duncan, and Colby Rasmus. That's just a fun bunch to have at your disposal. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)What outlook do you have for Anthony Reyes in 08? He still has a lot of talent in his arm, I just think he's been horribly managed in St. Louis. Where do you think he'll end up (rotation, pen, out of town)?
(Rob from Newton, NJ)
It's a tough proposition, because TLR and Dunc have a much better track record fixing veterans they've just met than kids they don't always have the patience to sort out. Not that Reyes has anything like Jose Rijo's upside, but I wouldn't be surprised if he thrives after a move, very much as Rijo did. (Christina Kahrl)
