Jose Reyes finished 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI, a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's game against the Angels.

Reyes reached 2,000 hits for his career in the game. He has shown signs of life at the plate lately, posting three multi-hit games in the past six outings to raise his average from .180 to .203 since May 13. The 33-year-old is slashing .205/.282/.329 which isn't very good, obviously. However, he is trending upward and is still worth using in most NL seasonal leagues.

Mets manager Terry Collins said he has "revisited" the idea of using Jose Reyes in the outfield.

He's been losing playing time to T.J. Rivera at third base and the Mets could use another outfielder with Yoenis Cespedes injured and Curtis Granderson struggling offensively. Reyes saw some time in the outfield during spring training but he's never played a regular season game there. The 33-year-old is hitting just .182 this year with three homers, 12 RBI and four steals.
May 13 - 9:32 PM

Jose Reyes is absent from the Mets' starting lineup again on Saturday.

Reyes also sat out Friday's game. T.J. Rivera is getting another start at the hot corner and is batting fifth against Zach Davies and the Brewers on Saturday.
May 13 - 3:53 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

Reyes had multiple hits for the fifth time in his last nine games. The 33-year-old is still hitting just .198/.277/.349 but has hits in 10 of his past 11 games, racking up three homers, 11 RBI and 10 runs scored in that span.
May 6 - 11:45 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-4 with five RBI and a run scored against the Braves in Wednesday's win.

The Mets banged out 20 hits and scored 16 runs without benefit of a homer and Reyes did his share of the damage. He had an RBI single in the third inning, then doubled with three ducks on the pond in the eighth. Reyes has been abysmal at the plate this year, turning in a weak .186/.273/.340 slash line. His counting stats look a little better -- three homers, 13 runs, 10 RBI and three steals. Maybe today was the start of good things for the veteran third baseman.
May 4 - 12:38 AM

Jose Reyes launched his second home run of the season as the Mets topped the Nationals on Saturday afternoon.

His solo shot came off of Nats' closer Shawn Kelley in the ninth inning. After a brutal start to the season, Reyes' bat has shown signs of life in recent days. He also singled in this one, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .173/.264/.284 for the year.
Apr 29 - 4:38 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-3 and hit his first homer of the year Thursday against the Braves.

At least Reyes still has knuckleball bat speed. Anything over 80 mph has given him hits this year, but put him up against Dickey or Jered Weaver and he still has a chance.
Apr 27 - 4:18 PM

Jose Reyes was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts Saturday against the Marlins.

The veteran is off to a dismal start, collecting just four hits over his first 43 at-bats (.093) with one extra-base hit, four walks and 12 strikeouts. Fantasy owners should keep Reyes on reserve until he starts to show some signs of life at the plate. T.J. Rivera will start at the hot corner if manager Terry Collins decides Reyes need a mental day off.
Apr 15 - 10:38 PM

Jose Reyes is out of the Mets' starting lineup Thursday against the Marlins.

T.J. Rivera will start at third base and hit seventh versus Miami left-hander Wei-Yin Chen. Reyes has batted just .054/.079/.081 with one walk and 11 strikeouts through 38 plate appearances in 2017. Daily Slant: The Mets actually have one of the lower team totals on the main slate, but they have already seen Wei-Yin Chen once this season which can't hurt matters. Both of the Mets LH bats - Granderson and Bruce - are easy fades, but Yoenis Cespedes, Asdrubal Cabrera and Wilmer Flores all have GPP viability. Cespedes owned a .342 ISO against LHP on the road last year, and Chen allowed 21 HRs to RH bats over that span.
Apr 13 - 3:48 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Jose Reyes might be given the day off against the Marlins on Thursday.

Reyes went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Phillies. He is now just 2-for-37 on the season, which works out to a terrifying .054 batting average. Fantasy owners would be well-served to sit Reyes until he shows signs that he might be coming out of this early slump.
Apr 12 - 11:07 PM

Jose Reyes has been dropped to seventh in the order for Monday's game against the Phillies.

Reyes has looked lost at the plate in the early going, with just one hit through 27 at-bats. Mets manager Terry Collins will give Curtis Granderson a try out of the leadoff spot against Clay Buchholz.
Apr 11 - 3:37 PM

Jose Reyes had another hitless game Monday, finishing 0-for-4 against the Phillies.

Reyes is 1-for-27 with nine strikeouts and one walk so far. Terry Collins said nothing after the game to suggest he'll give Reyes another day off or maybe drop him from the leadoff spot, but Reyes was hardly such a good bet entering the season that he deserves a particularly long leash.
Apr 10 - 11:41 PM

Jose Reyes is not in the Mets starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Marlins.

Reyes is off to a 1-for-18 (.056) start to the season, so he'll get a day to clear his head. Wilmer Flores is starting at the hot corner and batting cleanup for the Mets against Adam Conley and the Marlins on Saturday.
Apr 8 - 3:41 PM

Jose Reyes went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts from the leadoff spot Wednesday against the Braves.

Reyes did pretty well after joining the Mets last year, hitting .267/.326/.443, but it came with far-and-away the highest strikeout rate of his career; one more than 50 percent higher than his career average. At 33 (34 in June), he's far from a sure thing to remain a decent leadoff hitter going forward, and it's not like he adds much on defense. The Mets won't be quick to sour on him, but they might eventually find they're better off with Wilmer Flores at third.
