Fantasy Impact: Reyes has dealt with a plethora of injuries in recent seasons and wasn't even that effective when with the big-league club last year. Still, he's just 25 years old and possesses the raw talent to be come an electric weapon out of the bullpen.

Entering his fourth season with St. Louis, John Gant has received a tendered contract from the Cardinals for his 2020 campaign. The right-hander was the sole player that St. Louis needed to make a decision on before the "non-tender deadline." Salary figures will be determined later either via the arbitration process or by team negotiations before mid-January. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: This is great news for the Cardinals and Gant's fantasy value. Gant has proved to be incredibly versatile out of the bullpen - he can spot-start, throw multiple innings, or simply "get his guy" (get one batter out). Gant posted a career high 11 wins, suffering only one loss in his 2019 season maintaining a 3.66 ERA over that stretch. The Cardinals will look to Gant and his multi-faceted talent as the centerpiece of their bullpen again for the 2020 season.
