This is so unbelievable it’s difficult for me to even write, but general manager Sandy Alderson just said during a radio interview on WFAN that shortstop Jose Reyes is “very likely” to miss 2-3 weeks.
That’s about the same amount of time Reyes missed the last time he strained his left hamstring last month and went on the disabled list.
Expect Ruben Tejada and Justin Turner to patrol the middle of the diamond for the Mets in the foreseeable future.
Alderson also appeared with Mike Lupica on ESPN 1050 AM Radio, and said this regarding offseason negotiations with Jose Reyes:
“All kinds of things will be factored in. It would be hard for me to sit here and say the injuries won’t be factored in.”
Of course that was already obvious to most of us, but for all the doubters out there I figured I’d throw that in.
