The 22-year-old Reyes is expected to have surgery on Thursday. He felt the pain in his elbow while throwing on Friday. Reyes needs season-ending Tommy John surgery on his right arm.

"It's obviously very disappointing", general manager John Mozeliak said. 2017, because of a sore elbow.

Because of the possibility of re-injury, many teams are giving pitchers at least 16 months to recover from Tommy John surgery, meaning Reyes might not return until the 2018 All-Star break.

The Cardinals said Reyes had not been medically cleared. You never know when stuff like this happens and maybe it is an opportunity.

Reyes had been feeling soreness in the days leading up to camp and didn't throw his scheduled bullpen session on Tuesday.

Reyes started the season in Triple-A, but he was called up to the big leagues in August and never looked back. While Weaver's velocity is certainly not a problem-his fastball topped out at 96.4 miles per hour a year ago and averaged 91.9 MPH-Alex Reyes's fastballs, both of the two and four-seam varieties, topped out over 100 MPH in 2016, while each averaged over 96. Reyes is going to get a second opinion on his ailing elbow, but it appears that his season will be over before it even began.

Jaime Garcia was traded to Atlanta in the offseason, so Lance Lynn, Michael Wacha and Mike Leake will need to step up to make up for the Reyes loss.

The Cardinals are equipped to handle Reyes' injury from a depth perspective, but losing their best prospect on the cusp of stardom for any length of time will be a hard pill to swallow.
