Jose Reyes Is Running Again And Making A Rapid Recovery
Former Mets shortstop Jose Reyes continues to make a rapid recovery from the severely sprained left ankle he suffered on April 12.
Reyes started running for the first time on Friday, and he continues to push the envelope in his recovery process, according to Team officials.
“It was a little bit scary for me,” Reyes said of his first time running. “But I am pain free. I’m very happy the way that I performed yesterday; better than I expected.”
The 29-year-old Reyes hurt himself during an awkward and painful slide against the Kansas City Royals. He has already been doing other baseball activities like tossing and catching, but running on that ankle represents the biggest advance in his return to to the Blue Jays lineup.
“Even if I don’t feel a hundred percent, I’m 85-90 percent and I’m able to run the bases good … I’m going to let it fly,” Reyes said. “I’m going to let it go. I’m going to go play, come back and help this ballclub.”
It is now looking like Reyes will be back a month to a 1 1/2 months sooner than anyone expected.
