St. Louis Cardinals right-handed pitching prospect Alex Reyes punched a wall following his most recent Triple-A start and fractured the left pinky on his non-throwing arm. Reyes, 24, will relocate to St. Louis' spring training facility in Jupiter, Fla. to continue throwing but he will miss three weeks of game action, Cards general manager Mike Girsch told MLB.com's Jennifer Langosch and other reporters on Sunday.
Reyes hurt himself after his April 25 start in which he allowed three runs in 2 2/3 innings. The first came on a wild pitch in the first inning, the other two were charged to him after leaving the third inning with the bases loaded. Cardinals fans have been waiting a while for Reyes to make his return to the big leagues, and now the wait will be pushed back even more.
