Reyes not likely to pitch for Tribe this season

Reyes not likely to pitch for Tribe this season

|

CLEVELAND -- The Indians had hoped to see Anthony Reyes before season's end, but that's looking less and less likely by the day.

Reyes, more than a year removed from Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery, had his Minor League rehab assignment cut short because of faulty mechanics. Reyes was roughed up to the tune of a 25.41 ERA in three starts for Double-A Akron, and the Indians opted to have him work with Akron pitching coach Greg Hibbard on his delivery issues, rather than continue the rehab.

With less than two weeks remaining in the Minor League season, Reyes is running out of time to get enough work in to prove he's ready to rejoin the Tribe. Manager Manny Acta had hoped to count on Reyes as a rotation or bullpen option in the season's final month, but Acta implied that doesn't appear likely now.

Reyes is 13-26 with a 5.12 ERA in 67 career Major League appearances.
