Cards No. 1 prospect Alex Reyes unleashed his 100-mph fastballs on the SiriusXM Futures Game
Well, the 21-year-old right-hander pitched the first 1 2/3 innings for the World Team in the SiriusXM Futures Game on Sunday and he looked very, very good. He struck out four batters -- including Andrew Benintendi (No. 21), Clint Frazier (No. 23), Hunter Renfroe (No. 82) and Dansby Swanson (No. 6). Turner went down on a 101-mph fastball ... that was also moving diagonally across the zone.
While Swanson, first overall pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, was left fishing for a curveball that snapped off on the outside corner.
Reyes hit triple digits on his fastball three times and 99 mph on eight other pitches. He talked to MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch about his performance after the game:
The future looks bright down in Triple-A Memphis, St. Louis fans.
