ST. LOUIS, MO (WMC) -

Tough baseball news for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Alex Reyes, one of the leading candidates for National League Rookie of the Year, has a partial ligament tear in his elbow and will get a second opinion, but ESPN reports season-ending Tommy John surgery is likely.

The 22-year-old righthander, who also pitched for the Memphis Redbirds last season, made his big league debut August 9, going 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA in five starts and seven relief appearances.
