In his rehab returning from Tommy John surgery, Alex Reyes has made four starts, each more impressive than the one before. During his outing for Memphis Thursday night, Reyes dominated, going seven innings for the AAA team with thirteen strikeouts to one walk and only surrendering one hit. It was just the latest in a string of beyond solid efforts:

No pitcher in the 116-year history of the Pacific Coast League has ever done what Alex Reyes did tonight: strike out nine batters in a row. #STLCards— Joe Trezza (@JoeTrezz) May 25, 2018
Luckily for us, the lovely VanHicklestein has all Reyes strikeouts from his start Thursday for our enjoyment and observation in this thread:
In other news, Carson Kelly, on the mend from a hamstring strain, caught Reyes’ game Thursday night. Both Kelly and Reyes are expected to join the Cardinals soon, if not this weekend against the Pirates.
(Hopefully for the big league team, amirite?)
