Omar On Why Jose Reyes Will Start Season On The DL
Updated post 4/1 2:40 pm
Omar Minaya and Jose Reyes spoke to reporters today and shed some light on why the decision was made to place Jose Reyes on the disabled list yesterday.
“We want him for the whole year, and Opening Day is traditionally a big day, but the goal is to be able to have him for the whole season,” Minaya said. “We feel it’s safer just to be able to have him stay here and be ready to go whenever the time is.”
Reyes is first eligible to play on April 10, the fifth game of the season. He had this to say:
“I want to be there on Opening Day, there’s no doubt, but we have to make the right decision,” Reyes said today, according to The Associated Press. “If I miss a couple games, it won’t be a big deal because I have to get ready for the season.”

Moments ago, Brian Custer of SNY announced that Mets shortstop Jose Reyes will start the season on the disabled list based on a report from Jon Heyman of SI.com.
Mets doctors have advised Reyes and the team not to rush him back for Opening Day on Monday against the Marlins, and the team plans to comply with the doctors’ orders. Though no official announcement has been made, the plan is to place Reyes on the disabled list and back-date it so he could be ready for the fifth game of the season next Saturday versus the Nationals.
