I picked the highest on the poll of anyone thus far, looks like. I think he will hit a pretty high peak but never really be able to sustain it. I'm not certain if it will be with the Cards, but I could see him being 10-3 with an ERA around 2 some All Star break, making the team and then never being able to maintain that level again while settling in as a #2/3 type with some control issues; maybe a slightly lesser version of Carlos Martinez with more Ks and more walks, and a bit higher ERA in the 3.50-3.75 range.

So far, Reyes has been really good at being on the IL list. I don't see him excelling in the majors on any team

Right handed Rich Hill. If he gets traded he'll become the best pitcher in baseball in two years probably and people will call Mo an idiot.

He won't pitch long enough into a season to lose 9 games much less 19. Jose DeLeon is waaaay more pitcher than Reyes will ever be.

What He's got going for him is, as soon as he can stay healthy he's staying in the rotation. See; Hudson. Who should've gotten a tune up in Memphis at some point early on, but managed to be the best on a bad staff for a couple months. The FO couldn't afford to send him out, with everyone else "meh". Since then, they've banked on their depth. Showing ZERO seriousness in upgrading the staff by adding pieces of actual value, will push them to "fish" rather than "cut bait".

Comparing Reyes to Jeffrey Epstein is really unfair.
