Jose Reyes has a small tear of his right hamstring tendon, the team said in a statement Thursday night. Team doctor Struan Coleman advised Reyes to rest for two days, then resume treatment. Clearly, Reyes will not return very soon.

Reyes will rest for two days, then be re-evaluated. Probably out until All-Star break.

The Mets official statement:
