Alex Reyes' Early Life

Alex has demonstrated great potential as a pitcher since childhood, playing baseball at Elizabeth High School as both a student and an athlete. In high school, he was 5 ft 11 inches tall and threw pitches that recorded a maximum of 87 miles per hour (140 km/h). Sadly, his family could not afford to send him to showcase his talent. Later on, he moved to the Dominican Republic in December 2011, where it was much easier to gain the attention of scouts to increase the chances of him signing with the Major League Baseball teams.


After moving to the Dominican Republic, Alex Reyes lived with his grandmother in San Cristóbal. This worked in his favor, as it allowed him to attract the necessary attention of the scouts. Alex soon drew the attention of Raúl A. Mondesí, the son of San Cristóbal mayor and former MLB outfielder Raúl Mondesí, who decided to work out with him. Soon after, he caught the eye of a prospector named Valera, eventually being noticed by St. Louis Cardinals scout Rodny Jiménez.

The Cardinals invited him for a private workout at their team academy in Santo Domingo. Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak noted that Alex’s athleticism played a significant role in the team’s decision to consider him. The Cardinals later signed him in December 2012.


In 2020, Alex shared a photo on Instagram with the caption, “Where it all began.” This may indicate his early days playing Baseball. While the exact details and context of the photo are not precise, it provides a glimpse into Reyes’ journey and the beginnings of his passion for the sport.
