Mets SS Jose Reyes ready for rehab game
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Mets shortstop Jose Reyes will make a rehabilitation start for Class-A Brooklyn on Monday before he is activated from the disabled list, possibly a day later.
“I anticipate one rehab game,” Collins said. “Hopefully he’ll come out of it feeling good.”
With general manager Sandy Alderson and Reyes‘ agent, Peter Greenberg, looking on, the All-Star ran from home to first three times, first to third, second to home and home to second. Fans who arrived early chanted Reyes‘ name as he ran all out, a big grin on his face.
“I think we did enough running,” Reyes said. “I tested my legs in a lot of different ways. It is a relief. In the past I’ve had setbacks. I didn’t expect to run this quickly, but I’ve been working hard and doing treatment.”
Leading the majors with a .354 batting average, Reyes has been out since July 3 and is eligible to come off the disabled list Monday _ but the Mets want him to test his leg in a game. Collins apparently wanted Reyes to skip the rehab game but was overruled.
The Mets are being extremely cautious with their electrifying leadoff hitter because he has a history of leg injuries.
“He looked great. He feels great,” Collins said before the game.
When asked what he would do if he hits a ball into the gap, Reyes said only, “Triple.” He leads the majors with 15 triples.
In the last year of his contract, Reyes and his agent have said they will wait until after the season to discuss a new deal.
