Plenty of news
Couple of updates, and I’ll follow through with more information in my notebook later this evening…
1. Anthony Reyes is here, though he won’t be added to the roster until tomorrow. He will start Thursday’s game against Freddy Garcia and the White Sox. No word on who will be sent out to make room, and La Russa would not give anything up as to whether this is only a one-start deal or it’s more than that. My guess is this is not a one-start thing, but we shall see.
2. The manager did deliver some very encouraging news on Pujols. He said he fully expects No. 5 to play against Cleveland next week. Pujols had another extensive workout today, even more intense than yesterday’s, and he seems to be doing well. As always, a big part of the equation will be how he recovers tomorrow.
