Mets shortstop Jose Reyes flew to Boston with the team last night, then took a flight to New York with head trainer Ray Ramirez according to the team. He had an MRI and saw a doctor today who diagnosed the condition that led him to miss five games as tendinitis behind his right calf.
It looks like Reyes will re-join the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Boston Red Sox and hope for the best. Judging by the fact that the Mets called up Ramon Martinez to replace Alex Cora on the roster, there really isn’t a good alternative in the minors if Reyes does have to go on the disabled list.
Unfortunately, we’ll probably be seeing more of Martinez at short in the Boston series. I’d like to see Fernando Tatis mixed in there just to have some offense out of the position as well.
