No deal between Phillies and Dennys Reyes

4 Comments

It was reported last week that the Phillies and left-hander Dennys Reyes had agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million contract with a $1.35 million option for 2011, but Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia just tweeted that the deal is off.

Not to make light of Reyes’ conditioning, but it’s entirely possible that the team could have found something they didn’t like during his physical. Either that or Ruben Amaro was like, “Oh snap, after this Cliff Lee signing, we have already committed $155 million to 18 players for 2011. Reyes has gotta go.” Anyway, Reyes is now available to sign with any team.

The 33-year-old southpaw posted a 3.35 ERA and 25/21 K/BB ratio over 38 innings with the Cardinals last season. Though left-handed batters posted a .307/409/.453 batting line in 88 plate appearances against him in 2010, he has proven to be a fine LOOGY-type during his 14-year major league career.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Burglars caused $10,000 worth of damage to Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig‘s home while attempting to steal a safe.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the suspects broke into Puig’s San Fernando Valley home Tuesday night. They ransacked the residence, found a safe in the second-floor master bedroom, and dragged it downstairs to the front door.

Police said Thursday that the suspects then fled, leaving the safe in the entry way. An inventory is being conducted to determine what else was taken. Puig was at Dodger Stadium for a game on Tuesday.

“I (did) not sleep too much yesterday,” Puig said Wednesday, without offering details about the latest incident.

Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying three suspects, including the driver of a black four-door Toyota vehicle with paper license plates.

Police say the same suspects are believed to have been involved in another burglary attempt at Puig’s home on Aug. 30.

Previous break-ins at Puig’s residences occurred in March 2017 and during Game 7 of last year’s World Series.
