Typically a Thursday evening contest between the top affiliates of the Dodgers and Cardinals wouldn’t garner national attention, but it is fair to say Memphis has received an extra amount of media credentials leading up to Alex Reyes night at the ballpark. And instead of a bobble head giveaway or autograph session, the fans of the Redbirds are being treated with something much better.
Already staked to an early lead, Reyes looks to put the finishing touches on what can only be described as a dominating return from missing the entire 2017 campaign. The story has been told many times, but this time it includes a number of factors that impact a certain 25-man roster under the Arch.
Look for updates this evening that chronicle how ready the best pitching prospect in years is to helping the Birds on the Bat and after a 16 pitch first inning, let’s just say it could be a very long evening for the OKC Dodgers.
