Jose Reyes Heading To NY After Another Setback

Jack Curry of the NY Times reports the following:

Jose Reyes, who was rehabilitating his injured right calf in Port St. Lucie, Florida, experienced some discomfort and returned to New York on Monday night. Reyes was examined by the Mets’ physicians on Tuesday, but the team has not offered any further details. This is a discouraging sign for the shortstop, who has been on the disabled list since May 26.

The Mets have been reticent to even offer a possible return date for Reyes, who was supposed to run the bases last Thursday but felt tightness in his hamstring.

In a recent interview, Reyes acknowledged that he was worried about how his legs would respond once he tried to run full speed. Until Reyes was comfortable with doing that, he said he would not play in any rehab games. Now it is questionable when Reyes will play at all.

Enough is enough, just shut Reyes down already. At this point what do we have to gain by activating him?

Last Thursday, Reyes was supposed to run the bases for the first time since he was placed on the disabled list, but minutes before he was to begin he backed off citing some soreness. He has been idle ever since.
