Mets To Place Reyes On DL, Evans Headed To Los Angeles
According to Ed Coleman of WFAN, Nick Evans is on his way from Triple-A Buffalo to Los Angeles. The move could mean that the Mets intend to place shortstop Jose Reyes on the disabled list, although no official decision has been made yet by the Mets.
Reyes has yet to do any running drills and he told reporters that he doesn’t expect to run today either, which is when the Mets expected him to beginning running drills.
Prior to yesterday’s game, Sandy Alderson told reporters that Jose Reyes agent, Peter Greenberg, would like the doctor who performed Jose’s surgery in 2009 to view the MRI on his injured left hamstring. He had this to say:
“Based on that combination of Jose’s progress on a daily basis. And, the joint conclusions of our physicians, and the second opinion we will make a decision on Jose. I don’t think it will be made today, but we are getting to the point where we will be able to make a decision in the next day or two.”
Jose Reyes has told the team that there has been no improvement and seems very hesitant to push it and risk further injury.
“We have to see what is going to be the best-case scenario for me,” Reyes said. “If I have to go (on the DL), if I really need to go, I have to do it.”
Surprisingly so, the Mets have won four straight games since Reyes went down and are now three games over .500 for the first time since July 23, 2010.
Meanwhile, Mike Puma of the NY Post reports that the Mets intend to engage in secret in-season negotiations with Reyes in an attempt to sign Reyes before the end of this season.
Don’t be so sure the Mets are waiting until after the season to talk turkey with Jose Reyes. Multiple sources with knowledge of the process told The Post yesterday that indications are the Mets have begun — or will soon begin — secret talks with the Reyes camp in hopes of reaching agreement in the coming weeks on a new contract with the All-Star shortstop.
I’ll update this post as soon as the Mets report something official later today.
