James Reeves Starting Bullpen Sessions This Week After Spring Training Injury

James Reeves is a name most forget about so far this season as he has yet to start his 2017 campaign. Reeves was drafted in the 10th round of the 2015 draft and already reached Double-A Trenton at the end of last season. He worked a 2.27 ERA for High-A Tampa for the majority of last season, totaling 94 strikeouts in 83 1/3 innings pitched, and maintaining a slim 0.95 WHIP in the process.

Reeves will now start activity to prepare himself to make his splash in 2017 as Pinstriped Prospects learned from a source that’ll he’ll be found in bullpen sessions starting this week. Reeves was injured in Spring Training previous to the season as he suffered a ligament sprain in his elbow. He was the Yankees’ minor league Adam Warren last season as he spent time coming out of the bullpen and starting, no matter where he pitched it was a great thing to see. The Yankees will be eager to have him back and hopefully contending for a rotation spot in Double-A Trenton once he returns. It’s a possibility he can start with High-A Tampa, but it would mostly be to ease him in to actual game play before heading up to Double-A tier hitters.
