Cardinals non-tender RHP Alex Reyes .
Reyes was once touted as one of the best prospects in all of baseball, regularly featuring on various publications’ top-100 lists, including a fourth-place ranking on Baseball America’s pre-2017 list of the best prospects in baseball.

After blowing away minor league batters, he made his big league debut in 2016 and didn’t disappoint. The then-21-year-old tossed 46 innings of 1.57 ERA ball, giving up just one home run and striking out batters 27.5% of the time.
