Cards' top pitching prospect goes on DL

The Memphis Redbirds placed the organization's top pitching prospect, Anthony Reyes, on the disabled list Wednesday because of shoulder tendinitis.

Reyes, 23, skipped a turn after three consecutive difficult starts, then worked five shutout innings in Monday's 9-5 win over the Round Rock Express. Reyes struck out seven while allowing five hits and one walk.

Though the club minimized the significance of Reyes skipping a turn last week, citing only a tired arm, he reportedly was placed on a pitch limit.

Reyes is seventh in the Pacific Coast League with a 2.93 ERA in his second professional season. While with Class A Palm Beach last April, Reyes was placed on the disabled list due to shoulder tendinitis.


in other prospect news from the jim callis chat on espn yesterday--

mike ferris (1b, second round pick last year) is still struggling mightily. its not impossible for him to rebound but at this point not very likely. the comment was that not too many major leaguers have struggled that bad for the first six months of their career and he is supposed to be known for his bat.

wilfredo pujols was probably drafted a few rounds too high but was an intriguing pick. he had his knee scoped so scouts didnt see much of him. i have seen a picture of him. although he is albert's cousin the physical resemblance is uncanny. add that to the fact that he will be training with albert during the offseason and its probably a good gamble.

Well, still have Wainwright (sp?)!! I really hope this isn't serious, as I was looking forward to the Cardinals leaving a 5th spot open for Wainwright and Reyes to compete over.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

wainwright has good overall numbers but he has slowed down from his quick start and last time i checked had an era over 6 in his previous three starts. hopefully thats just a hiccup and not related to a hidden injury. i would love to see both of them pitching in the bigs next year but if we could trade one for a good young outfielder i probably wouldnt be too upset.

the good thing about reyes is that while he has been sidetracked by injuries in college and the pros he has avoided going under the knife. hopefully this thing isnt too bad and with a little rest he will be back to his old self.

what i have been hearing is the cards were trying to alter reyes mechanics a little to try to get more groundballs which lead to the sore shoulder. i think they are abandoning that idea and just letting him throw now which seems like a good idea.
