Cardinals manager Mike Shildt says Alex Reyes is rehabbing in Jupiter and so everything is going well and he's on schedule. He didn't want to get ahead of things, but said the club doesn't have a specific plan for him at this point and that Reyes could start, be a multi-inning guy or even a late-game option.

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt says rehabbing pitcher Alex Reyes is healthy and doing well. Shildt was noncommittal about what role Reyes might fill next season, saying "There is not a role he couldn't work within."

D-backs manager Torey Lovullo had some strong praise for his star hitters from this year's team, saying now Cardinal Paul Goldschmidt "will win a World Series" in his career and free agent A.J. Pollock was "the best player in the National League" before he got hurt last year.

Something to keep in mind with Paul Goldschmidt's trade: Arizona's Chase Field had only the 11th-highest runs scored park factor, and the 20th-highest home runs factor, last season. The ballpark change isn't nearly as dramatic as it might've been pre-humidor.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Paul Goldschmidt has played basically a full season against the Dodgers. He's a .302/.376/.551 hitter in 562 career plate appearances against them, with 31 home runs and 98 RBIs. Now, with Goldschmidt reportedly going from the D-backs to the Cardinals, Dodgers will see him 12 fewer times in 2019.
