Cardinals send Reyes to minors
May 27, 2007

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Anthony Reyes, who won the World Series opener for the St. Louis Cardinals last fall but has lost 10 straight regular-season decisions, on Sunday was optioned to Triple-A Memphis.

Reliever Todd Wellemeyer will take Reyes' spot in the rotation Wednesday at Colorado. The Cardinals recalled left-hander Troy Cate from Memphis to fill the roster spot.

Reyes is 0-8 with a 6.08 ERA in nine starts and allowed five runs and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings in a loss to the Nationals on Friday. He was 5-8 with a 5.06 ERA as a rookie last year, but made a name for himself with eight dominating innings against the Tigers in the Series opener.

Reyes is the first Cardinals pitcher to lose 10 straight decisions since closer Dennis Eckersley lost 10 in a row from April 4, 1996 to Aug. 26, 1997. Team records going back to 1957 show no starters with losing streaks of that length.


I don't know about this, I think the Cards just want Reyes to have some success so he doesn't beat himself up about losing so many games. He gets no run support so its not his fault, but still losing that much has to do something to you. Wellemeyer though? He's terrible.

What's odd is that up until a week ago, he had a 1.18 WHIP, yet a 5 ERA. Even now, with his ERA over 6, his WHIP is not horrible at 1.35. His Ks are also respectable.

I was keeping an eye on him, and waiting for it to come together. Still might, but this is certainly a delay.

I think he'll get another shot in the bigs sometime, but I think he will fail. He's a AAAA pitcher.

Protrade wrote an article on him about a week ago, detailing how he has been one of the unluckiest pitchers in the league. His strand rate is unusually low. Oh well.

Reyes has not pitched well this year but not as bad as his 6+ ERA would suggest. He just cannot seem to avoid giving up the big inning. He was also bitten by zero run support.

And that's why I never liked Tony LaRussa. Let the young guys pitch. And considering his alcohol debacle this offseason, he has moved down my list. Just not a good guy.

This could be said about Dave Bush too. It both cases, I think it to be unwise for both their respective teams to make a somewhat rash move such as this, especially when the other option is Todd Wellemeyer. The Cards need Reyes to work through this at the major league level so they can see what they have in him, long-term. I no longer view the Cards as a playoff team this year (although who knows, it is the NL Central), and I think they have to get Reyes as much big league experience as possible so they know whether they can pencil him into their 2008 rotation.

How soon we forget about Ankiel. Ever since him, the Cardinals have treated every, single pitching prospect with kid gloves. This is par for the new course, and I expect him to be down there until they are very confident that he's in the right place.
