Jose Reyes has been rehabbing in Florida and getting in shape after his bout with a thyroid problem. He’s playing in one more game today and then coming back to New York tomorrow.
The Mets plan to have Reyes in the lineup on Saturday against the Nationals. That’s the first day he’s eligible to come off the disabled list after being added retroactively to March 26.
From NY Times:
“Barring any setbacks, we anticipate that, the physical conditioning part of it is going extremely well,” Manager Jerry Manuel said. “He’s getting enough at-bats, so we will do another evaluation on Thursday after he plays in St. Lucie.”
I think that we all like Alex Cora, but hate seeing him on the field everyday. Reyes’ return is going to be huge boost to this team in the field and the clubhouse. I can’t wait to see him back out there on Saturday.
