Original Post 8/24

Terry Collins said before tonight’s game that shortstop Jose Reyes will play three straight rehab games with Double-A Binghamton beginning Thursday.

Reyes will then get a day off on Sunday, and barring any setbacks he will be activated from the disabled list on Monday. The Mets have a doubleheader against the Marlins that day, and Terry Collins already made clear that he will not play in both games.

Reyes has been running and participating in baseball activities for about a week now and says he feels great. Today he took some grounders in the field and then participated in batting practice with the rest of his teammates at Citizens Bank Park.

As for his rehab in Binghamton, apparently they are very happy to have him back.
