2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: ALEX REYES RIGHT BACK TO THE DL WITH A LAT STRAIN

So Alex Reyes was hurt after all.  After there was speculation regarding why St. Louis Cardinals pitching prospect Alex Reyes was removed from his first 2018 start after four shutout innings on Wednesday, we now know that it was a lat strain that sent him to the showers early and thus, required another DL stint Thursday.  After missing all of 2017 recovering from Tommy John surgery, there was much anticipation about Reyes' arrival this season after he struck out almost every batter he faced during his recent minor league rehab assignment.  Those thoughts will have to go on the backburner now that Reyes is out again and lat strain tends to linger like obliques.  That means Reyes is unlikely to return when the initial 10 days are through and a late June return would seem much more likely.  Despite this, bite the bullet and stash Reyes again if possible given the talent.
