Parnell To Replace Reyes While He’s On Bereavement List
Jose Reyes will miss the next 3 to 7 days after the Mets placed him on the bereavement list following the death of his grandmother in the Dominican Republic.
To take Reyes’ place on the roster, the Mets have activated reliever Bobby Parnell from the disabled list, which will give Terry Collins a short bench until Jose comes back.
Reyes told the Mets he would return after the Pirates series, and until then expect Ruben Tejada to play shortstop in Reyes’ place.
Reyes is hitting .335 this season and was the only player to appear in every Mets game this season.
In eight appearances with Buffalo spanning eight innings, Parnell allowed seven hits and two walks and posted a 3.38 ERA.
Our condolences and prayers go out to Jose and his family.
