Musgrove rocketing to the majors soon? (0:45)

Eric Karabell discusses the impressive numbers being put up by Astros minor leaguer Joe Musgrove. (0:45)

Top St. Louis Cardinals prospect Alex Reyes made his season debut Sunday with four innings of shutout ball for Triple-A Memphis, striking out eight members of the Fresno Grizzlies. Reyes walked three, hit a batter and admitted to reporters he didn’t throw enough strikes but still, nobody scored under his watch. Reyes produced significant numbers over three levels of the minors last season and while his 2016 campaign was delayed by a 50-game suspension for smoking marijuana, it doesn’t suspend his ascension to the big club as much as most realize. Reyes is likely to get promoted again this year and if it’s as a starter, fantasy owners will want to indulge in this.
