1. Brad Brach/Sean Doolittle (CIN) – All three members of the Reds hierarchy have gone in two straight and three of four, but Brach has thrown significantly fewer pitches than Heath Hembree and Amir Garrett.
2. Tyler Rogers (SF) – Gabe Kapler said he wants to get Rogers back out on the mound, and that may be for a save chance tonight since Jake McGee has gone in two straight.
3. Giovanny Gallegos/Andrew Miller (STL) – Alex Reyes has gone in three of four, including a 30-pitch blown save (snapping his 24-save streak to start his career) last night. Giovanny Gallegos, Genesis Cabrera and Ryan Helsley have also gone in three of four, but Gallegos only tossed nine pitches last night. If you’re desperate you can take a shot on a guy like Andrew Miller.
4. Pete Fairbanks (TB) – Diego Castillo has gone in two straight.

Alex Reyes (P) STL - May. 22

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=779761

Reyes earned the save against the Cubs on Saturday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he gave up one hit and struck out one batter.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The right-hander yielded a two-out infield single but was otherwise both effective and efficient in the outing, getting through the ninth inning on 13 pitches (eight of which were strikes). Reyes has been a revelation in his first full-time stint as a closer, going 14-for-14 in save chances and registering a minuscule 0.38 ERA across 24 innings. His 1.25 WHIP and 7.5 BB/9 suggest that the ERA is buoyed by some good fortune, but it's hard to argue with the overall results.

No. 3 on the list, sorting by earned runs ascending, IP descending after the first month.

He has a win and six saves, making him worth $7 in 4x4 (in the 2019 formula).

In 12 IP he's walked 10, which is why his WHIP (1.33) is so much higher than his Rating (0.92).

BABIP .232

G/L/F 29/29/43

The fact that he hasn't yet given up a homer is remarkable.

Bad news for K/P in the XFL (we have Hicks) but, apart from that, it's really nice to see Alex Reyes succeed after all of his struggles.

And it's a long season.

From the Monkey:

St. Louis Cardinals – Alex Reyes now has all three Cardinals saves this year after slamming the door shut Thursday. He hasn’t allowed a run yet this season and appears to firmly have a grasp on the job. Let’s kick that asterisk.

Hierarchy remains: Reyes | Gallegos | Hicks.

I'm always interested to see how the early games impact the auctions. Reyes went for $3 to me last Friday. He will be available in a couple of drafts next week. Melancon got cut by me and someone else (two different league) in the past 36 hours before his first save. I bet goes past both keeper numbers tonight.

How much meaning should we give to that? Reyes is a great fit if he can stay healthy and do the job. He did pitch 19.3 innings in 2020 (last year), which pro-rates to 54 IP, roughly, which is roughly a healthy closer's workload. So why not?

I've been a proponent the last few years for moving the tender Reyes into a bullpen slot, maybe even closing. It's interesting to chart how these decisions get made, and of course unmade, because of needs. I think Hicks is going to be the guy, but whatever works!

He started last season positive with Covid 19 and missed summer camp, and was recalled the first week of August just before the Cardinals were shut down because of the spread. When he finally pitched, in short outings with small leads or deficits generally, he was for the most part effective. Most notably, he struck out a lot of guys, which is a great sign for this still youngish pitcher who has a famously live arm and great stuff when he's healthy. He also didn't allow many homers on the nearly 50 percent of batted balls hit on the fly, which can be an indication of good luck, but when coupled with a 20 percent infield fly percentage is a sign that the fourseamer is doing its job. As for his health, few can remember the last time he was healthy. He last threw 100 innings in a season in 2016, split between Triple-A and his major league debut, which was followed the next spring by a torn UCL and TJ. The road back has been long, and how do consecutive seasons of 41 and 19.7 innings the last two years add up on the health front? More importantly, even if they indicate a whisper of health, they come with 47 bases on balls in 60.7 innings, which puts the control issues from his phenom days to shame. All of that plus the Cards front five argues for a bullpen role this year as he continues to sort out his actual health from what it feels like finally to feel healthy. Can he then reinstitute an approach that reduces the number of free passes he issues? The Cards have four closer-like arms in their pen, too, so Reyes shouldn't cost too much, his role unsettled, which makes him a worthy flyer likely to throw strikeouts (at least) unless he ends up once again on the IL.
