Cardinals pitcher injured hand punching wall after minor league start

St Louis Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Alex Reyes has been trying to work his way back to the majors following a few disappointing appearances this season, but he has created a major obstacle for himself by not being able to control his emotions.

According to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, Reyes fractured his left pinky when he punched a wall following his start at Triple-A Memphis on Thursday. The 24-year-old was frustrated after allowing three runs and three walks in 2 2/3 innings.

The one positive is that Reyes is a right-hander, so he obviously knew enough to punch a wall with his off-hand. That said, breaking your finger because you lost your cool is not the best way to impress the MLB club. Reyes certainly isn’t the first baseball player we have seen injure himself in frustration, but the way he lost his temper could prove to be very costly given his situation.
