A major league pitcher is back in Peoria to pitch with his old minor league team. 

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Alex Reyes will start his rehabilitation with the Peoria Chiefs starting during Monday's game versus the Clinton LumberKings. Reyes missed the last 15 months after a Tommy John surgery. 

According to the Chiefs website, he is the first former Chiefs player to return to the team on MLB rehab since Peorian Joe Girardi in 2003. 

Reyes originally pitched for the Chiefs in 2014. He was called up to the major leagues in 2016.

Monday is also a half price ticket night at Dozer Park.
