Mets Place Reyes On DL, Could Miss Three Weeks
The New York Mets today announced the team has placed shortstop Jose Reyes on the 15-Day Disabled List, retroactive to July 3, with a strain of his left hamstring and selected the contract of infielder/outfielder Nick Evans from Buffalo (AAA) of the International League.
Reyes, 28, suffered the injury running to first base in the first inning on July 2 vs. the Yankees.
Evans, 25, was with the Mets earlier this season from May 18-June 10, going 0-12 with five walks. Evans was hitting .329 (74-225) with 28 runs scored, 13 doubles, seven home runs and 29 RBI in 57 games with the Bisons. He had a 19-game hitting streak from May 12-June 29, batting .514 (38-74) during that span.
According to Enrique Rojas of ESPN’s twitter, doctors have informed Jose Reyes that he will be out for three weeks:
This is terrible news for the Mets as undoubtably their MVP, maybe the NL MVP, will now reportedly be out until right before the July 31st trade deadline at the earliest. Originally believed to only be out a few days, the speedster will now miss 15-20 games at least. One can assume that this has just about put to bed any chance of Alderson dealing Reyes.
Reyes has put this team on his back for months in the absence of David Wright and Ike Davis. Now without him, who is left to do so? Beltran? Pagan?… Bay?! Boy does this offense look alot less threatening without Reyes at the top of the order.
