Alex Reyes is back on the DL; happiness is an illusion
After making his season debut yesterday, May 30, Alex Reyes will land back on the Disabled List with a right lat strain. You might recall that is his throwing lat. The Cardinals have recalled Austin Gomber. They have also recalled Luke Voit and optioned John Gant and Tyler O'Neill.
The good news is that Carlos Martínez is scheduled to make a rehab start for AA Springfield tonight. His lat seemed fine while he was shooting baskets after the rec-league basketball game we were both watching had ended. With the off day on Monday, the Cardinals may not need another starter until next Saturday, which may allow Martínez to slot in that spot. In other injury news, Yadier Molina is back to baseball activities and may be cleared to play in the next few weeks.
