All of the Mets beat writers are reporting that Jose Reyes had another MRI today in New York that revealed significant scar tissue and inflammation behind his right knee. He left Port St. Lucie, where he was rehabbing, because of pain in his leg. The plan is for him to stay in New York for physical therapy to break up the scar tissue and reduce the inflammation.
I’m starting to doubt that we’ll see Reyes back on the field again this year. I’m sure that he’d like to be able to finish the season with the team so he can go into next year without such a bad taste in his mouth. Reyes hasn’t played since May 20 and only played in 36 games this season.
