Alex Reyes Newsbeat

Thursday, August 14, 2014

St. Louis Cardinals’ Alex Reyes takes different road with Peoria Chiefs | MiLB.com

Not the classic route.

Playing the percentages is a proven baseball strategy, whether looking at pitcher/batter matchups, calling for an intentional walk or determining the batting order.

Playing the percentages also helped St. Louis Cardinals prospect Alex Reyes kick off his baseball career.

Reyes, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound right-hander ranked as the No. 4 prospect in the Cardinals system, decided to leave his Elizabeth, New Jersey, home his senior year of high school and move to the Dominican Republic. It was a decision based on the idea that Reyes would get more exposure due to a higher ratio of scouts to players in the Dominican Republic.
