Cardinal prospect Alex Reyes suspended 50 games for marijuana


Late at night on Friday, November 6 it was announced that Alex Reyes, a top pitching prospect in the Cardinals organization, would not make his scheduled start the following day in the Arizona Fall League. The decision seemingly came out of nowhere prompting much speculation as to the cause. On Monday evening, Reyes issued an apology for using marijuana, which was detected during a routine drug test. He will be suspended fifty games. I did not see that coming.
