Question of the Day
Mets’ Reyes leaves game with sore hamstring
NEW YORK — Mets shortstop Jose Reyes left Sunday’s game against Atlanta because of stiffness in his left hamstring, the same spot that landed him on the disabled list last month.
Reyes, the NL batting leader, was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the second. It was unclear how he was hurt. He was scheduled for an MRI exam Sunday at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
The four-time All-Star missed more than two weeks in July because of a strained left hamstring, the latest in a long line of leg injuries for the speedy switch-hitter.
Reyes, 28, has been one of baseball’s best all-around players this year, and he can become a free agent after the season. Injury concerns probably are his biggest drawback.
• Slumping designated hitter Jorge Posada was not in the lineup for the New York Yankees’ series finale against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. Manager Joe Girardi said Eric Chavez and Eduardo Nunez had been swinging hot bats, prompting the move. Posada is 3-for-18 this month and hitting only .230 with nine homers and 31 RBI this season.
California developer to buy Hawks, arena
ATLANTA — The Hawks and Philips Arena will be sold to California developer and pizza chain owner Alex Meruelo, but the NBA team will remain in Atlanta, a person familiar with the deal said Sunday.
The deal, subject to the approval of the NBA, is to be announced Monday. The Hawks ownership group, led by Michael Gearon Jr. and Bruce Levenson, also recently sold the NHL Atlanta Thrashers to a group that has moved the team to Winnipeg. The Thrashers deal was for a reported $170 million.
Meruelo, who will have controlling interest of more than 50 percent of the Hawks, founded La Pizza Loca. It has more than 50 franchised and company-owned restaurants in Southern California.
