Jose Reyes Suffers Setback, May Not Return When Eligible
I am getting so sick and tired of posting these injury reports and updates…
It’s been reported that Jose Reyes has suffered a setback while rehabbing in Port St. Lucie.
Steve Popper writes,
Jose Reyes played in an extended spring game today in Port St. Lucie but was pulled in the third inning after feeling discomfort again in his right knee/calf.
Reyes will travel to New York Thursday to be examined again by team doctors.
Jerry Manuel said he believes this is only a day or two setback, but that seems hard to imagine.
I find it hard to imagine as well. That’s kind of a big fish to swallow…
Okay, now I’m really getting worried…
I’m already having horrible flashbacks of what we went through with Reyes during his rookie year when some idiot decided to teach Jose how to run a different way and he became injured for the rest of the season.
Of course that was a hamstring, and this is a calf, but just the thought of losing Reyes for anymore significant time is scaring the heck out of me.
Once again though, Reyes goes to another doctor in New York for a re-evaluation. Why aren’t these ailments ever diagnosed properly in the first place?
This is so frustrating…
Expect Alex Cora and Wilson Alvarez to split the playing time at shortstop until Reyes comes back… whenever that will be…
By the way, Ramon Martinez will mis at least 6-8 weeks for surgery on his fractured finger.
One more thing… Tonight’s game is rained out. Hopefully that means Tim Redding gets bumped from his start tomorrow. (Jerry, are you reading?)
