Video: Jose Reyes Thyroid Problem

The Mets sent Jose Reyes back to New York after tests showed that he has a hyperactive thyroid. I don’t know if it’s a situation that could affect him on the field. I would guess there may be varying levels of severity, but I’m not a doctor. We should hear what impact, if any, this will have on Reyes playing the season and the rest of his career.

This news is a big blow to the Mets, with Carlos Beltran already out until May, because the flashbacks of last season’s injury-plagued disaster is still so fresh in our minds. Stephania Bell has a good piece on ESPN about what the injury could mean for Reyes going forward.

Here’s some video from ESPN:

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
