The Mets plan to have Jose Reyes bat leadoff 3-4 days per week.
It could be more than that, of course, depending on how David Wright's (neck) health is. The Mets aren't sure yet who will bat leadoff for them on days when Reyes doesn't start. Reyes is slated to see time all over the infield and some in the outfield this spring as he prepares for a super utility role. He could be a sneaky value in fantasy drafts this spring as a guy who doesn't technically have a starting job but who is likely to wind up playing a lot. Feb 17 - 12:53 PM

Jose Reyes will play for the Dominican Republic in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

This will be Reyes' fourth time participating in the WBC. The veteran infielder is currently projected to serve in a backup role for the Mets in 2017, but he could see significant playing time depending on David Wright's health.
Jan 5 - 10:51 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson confirmed Monday that Jose Reyes will be tried in the outfield during spring training.

The idea first popped up in early November, and it sounds like the Mets fully plan to go through with it. Reyes hasn't played any outfield since rookie ball in 2000 -- when he was 17 years old -- but he probably still has enough athleticism in that 33-year-old body to pull it off. It would obviously give the Mets a little more flexibility.

Mets exercised their 2017 option on INF Jose Reyes.

It's for the MLB minimum -- a terrific bargain for New York after Reyes batted .267/.326/.443 across 279 plate appearances in 2016. Reyes is expected to see action in the outfield next spring to make way for the possible return of David Wright at third base. We'll see how that goes.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York writes that Jose Reyes could get some exposure in the outfield next spring.

Reyes mostly played third base in his return to the Mets this season, but his role could change if David Wright makes it back from neck surgery and Neil Walker returns. There was some brief discussion about Reyes potentially getting some work in the outfield earlier this summer, but it never came to fruition. The 33-year-old has only played the outfield once in pro ball and that was when he was a 17-year-old in rookie ball back in 2000. While his role is in flux, Reyes is a sure thing to return to the Mets next season. His contract includes an option for 2017 at the league minimum, which is a foregone conclusion to be exercised.

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets are expected to pick up Jose Reyes' option for 2017.

When the Mets signed Reyes to a minor league deal in June following his release by the Rockies, they had an option for 2017 at the veteran minimum $507,500 included in the deal. The Rockies are still responsible for the $41 million the infielder is owed over the next three years. Reyes batted .267/.326/.443 with eight homers and nine steals over 60 games for the Mets. He would offer protection at third base for David Wright (neck) next season.

Jose Reyes went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's extra-innings win over the Phillies.

With the Mets down two runs in the ninth and Phillies closer Jeanmar Gomez on to save the game, Reyes yanked a pitch over the right-center field wall to tie the game and send it to extras. Reyes also scored on Asdrubal Cabrera's walk-off, three-run home run two innings later. The homer was the eighth for Reyes in 52 games this year, giving him 18 RBI and 41 runs scored. The 33-year-old is batting .269/.329/.461 overall.

Jose Reyes slugged a solo homer and drew a walk Friday against the Twins.

Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera went back-to-back against Jose Berrios in the third inning. That was all Bartolo Colon and the Mets’ bullpen would need in this one. Reyes is now up to seven homers to go along with a .276/.332/.464 batting line over 47 games. He’s also stolen eight bases.

Jose Reyes went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Reyes did manage a single, but he was otherwise unable to reach base. The veteran third baseman has done a fine job since joining the Mets in July and is slashing .275/.329/.451 with six homers, 15 RBI and eight steals over 193 at-bats.

Jose Reyes finished 2-for-5 with a homer, a stolen base, and two runs scored in the Mets' 6-3 defeat of the Reds on Wednesday afternoon in Cincinnati.

Reyes opened the game with a leadoff solo homer in the top of the first inning against Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani. He then reached first base on a groundout in the third, stole second, and scored the game's second run. The veteran infielder added a single in the seventh. Reyes has come through huge for the Wild Card-hunting Mets over the last month and currently boasts a .287/.341/.485 batting line for the year.

Jose Reyes went 4-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

Reyes had a double and three singles in the win. It was the fourth time in his last 11 contests that Reyes had three or more hits in a game, pulling his line up to .300/.344/.493 through 33 games this year. Reyes has four homers and six steals, and he's hitting at the top of the Mets' lineup. There's a lot to like about his situation right now.

Jose Reyes went 1-for-5 with a double and a run scored Monday against the Marlins.

Reyes doubled to lead off the bottom of the eighth inning and moved over to third base after a fly out by Alejandro De Aza. He then scored the tying run after A.J. Ramos uncorked a wild pitch. Reyes collided with Ramos during the play at the plate, but fortunately for the short-handed Mets, he was able to stay in the ballgame. The 33-year-old is batting .281/.329/.474 with 15 extra-base hits (including four homers), 13 RBI, six steals, and 23 runs scored through 32 games.

Jose Reyes went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a stolen base and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Reyes scored nearly half of the Mets' runs in the game, accounting for three of the team's seven. He did it with three singles, giving him 15 hits in his last 38 at-bats. After a slow start, the 33-year-old is now hitting .284/.336/.477 with three homers, 12 RBI, 18 runs scored and six steals in 26 games.

Mets activated INF Jose Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.

Starving for offense, Reyes will slot back in nicely at third base and as a catalyst atop the metse lineup. He has been sidelined since July 27 to to an intercostal strain, but had no issues on a minor league rehab assignment the past two days.
Sat, Aug 13, 2016 03:17:00 PM

Jose Reyes (intercostal) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Low-A Brooklyn.

That's only two days later than the Mets' initial estimate, so the veteran shortstop apparently didn't suffer any sort of significant setback with his left intercostal muscle. Reyes will probably play in 3-4 minor league games before rejoining the Mets early next week. He's been on the disabled list since July 30, retroactive to July 27.
