    Reyes posted a video on instagram of him pitching off a homemade mound in what looked like his backyard. CMart’s surgery was a cortisone shot in his shoulder.

    If you want more information, check out the articles on the front page from Winter Warm-Up. You can listen to these two pitchers (and most every other player on the roster) answer questions on their current status. As you might expect, everyone says they are doing great. The proof will be in camp.

    Reyes and Carlos are the two questions whose answers could be the difference between a playoff contender and a real threat to win a pennant. Both have tremendous stuff and tremendous questions about whether their arms will hold up well enough to utilize it. I’d be thrilled if Martinez stayed in the rotation all year and Reyes had a healthy year in the bullpen.

    Ok, here we are, spring training has started. Any word on Reyes? Does he seem to be in good health? Does he look good with his early throwing? Is he being considered as a starter or reliever at this point?

    Nothing is new, rats. Reyes is preparing as a starter, but is more likely going to be a reliever this year. The P-D had an article about him (and Martinez) the other day, but again, there is not much new insight. Position players haven’t even fully reported yet.

    I hadn’t seen that article, Brian. It would be nice to see Reyes have a solid year in the bullpen this year and be ready to step into the rotation for 2021 after Waino retires. It isn’t something we can expect, necessarily…it would just be nice.

    I see things differently as far as Reyes’ use goes. The front office has made sure their prize prospect has had his workload monitored for the last few years. How has babying him helped him the last few years? Not well. I am not blaming his injuries on how he has been handled, but a different approach is necessary. He has the body of an NFL linebacker, and should be able to handle 150-175 innings. But 2 big if’s surround him. 1) Can he stay healthy? 2) Can he earn a slot in the starting rotation? He is certainly the biggest wild card of pitchers in camp.

    27…. and how. A reasonable person with the knowledge of Reyes’ pro-career would have to had diluted his potential and ability, hence the wild card. Anything we get out of him in ’20 will be welcomed. If he has a solid season he’ll back back on page one. Can’t say what will happen if he get hurt again or doesn’t show enough.

    I just hope he is healthy and effective enough to get a chance in the starter derby. He’s a guy you just can’t count on, but could fill multiple roles.
