Puma adds that the Mets are "conflicted given Reyes' roots in the organization" and want him to receive a "proper sendoff." The front office must not read Twitter.

Jose Reyes went 2-for-5 with a home run, a stolen base and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Reyes scored three of the Mets' 14 runs in the outburst. The 34-year-old has been mostly dead weight for the club this year, as he's only produced in two of the 18 games in which he's appeared -- literally, all five of his hits and both of his steals have come in just two games this year. The Mets would do well to continue using him sporadically, if at all.
Apr 29 - 8:20 PM

Making his first start of the year, Jose Reyes was caught stealing the one time he was on base and committed an error at shortstop on Tuesday.

Reyes racked up 561 plate appearances for the Mets last year. It'd be for the best if he got about half that many this season. He'll probably play once or twice per week as long as the rest of the infield is healthy.
Apr 3 - 10:10 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and two stolen bases in a Grapefruit League loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

He drove in a run with an infield single in the sixth inning. The two stolen bags give him three for the spring. Reyes played second base today and is expected to see time all over the diamond this year. He had a .246 batting average with 15 homers, 58 RBI and 24 steals for the Mets last year.
Mar 10 - 6:42 PM

Mets signed INF Jose Reyes to a one-year, $2 million contract.

He can earn an additional $500,000 in incentives. Reyes batted .246/.315/.413 with 15 homers and 24 stolen bases for the Mets last season and is expected to operate in a utility role in 2018.
Jan 26 - 5:09 PM

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets and Jose Reyes have agreed to terms on a one-year deal.

It's not surprising; the Mets have a greater fondness for Reyes than does any other team in the league. Reyes bounced back from an awful start to hit a respectable .246/.315/.413 in 501 at-bats last year. He's supposed to be in a utility role this time around, but the Mets still don't have a second baseman.
Jan 25 - 4:41 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets "remain open to a reunion" with Jose Reyes.

The Mets picked up Asdrubal Cabrera's option for next season, but they could still bring back Reyes as an option in the infield. The 34-year-old had an awful first half this past season but rebounded in the second half to finish with a .246/.315/.413 batting line, 15 homers and 24 steals.

Jose Reyes launched a solo home run in a loss to the Phillies on Friday.

He’s now up to 15 homers on the year, hist most since 2008 during his first stint with the Mets. Reyes couldn’t buy a hit early on in the season, but he’s shown during the second half that he still has something left. The impending free agent has expressed an interest in finishing his career with the Mets, but it’s unclear whether the interest is mutual.

Jose Reyes told The Record that he would be willing to take a discount in order to re-sign with the Mets.

"I already made my money. At this point, for me, I don’t think it’s about that. It’s where I’m going to be comfortable and stuff," Reyes said. Reyes has hit just .245/.314/.410 this season but has closed strong with a .289/.357/.466 line in the second half. It wouldn't figure to take much to bring him back in a utility role, but the Mets could opt to spend that money elsewhere.

Jose Reyes went 2-for-4 and stole two bases in a loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

The two steals give Reyes 24 on the season. Even at 34-years-old, he still shows plus speed and the ability to make a difference when he gets on base. He just doesn't get on base enough to justify being an everyday player anymore. He's not a long or short-term solution for the Mets.

Jose Reyes went 4-for-5 with a homer against the Marlins in a losing cause Tuesday.

That Reyes is hitting pretty well right now is ultimately a bad thing for the Mets; it does their draft position no good to win games and it probably increases the chances that they'll bring him back next year. Even if Reyes still has a little something left offensively, he's been below average defensively everywhere he's been tried since rejoining the Mets last summer. They need to let him go.

Jose Reyes expressed his desire on Friday to return to the Mets in 2018.

As of now, the interest on the Mets' end appears to be lukewarm at best, though a veteran with his versatility could certainly be useful. The 34-year-old has also shown considerable life in his bat as of late, slashing .301/.363/.480 with four homers, 20 RBI and nine stolen bases in his last 53 games dating back to June 27.

Jose Reyes socked a pair of homers and drove in three runs in a win over the Reds on Friday.

Reyes launched a solo homer in the third inning before connecting for a two-run shot in the fifth. It was his 10th career multi-homer game and his first since last July 10. The 34-year-old had a brutal first half, but he’s hitting .288 with four homers, 18 RBI, nine steals, and 28 runs scored in 43 games since the All-Star break.

Jose Reyes went 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI, two walks, and two runs scored in Monday’s win over the Phillies.

Reyes slugged a solo homer in the third inning — just his second homer since the All-Star break — and plated another run with a single in the Mets’ six-run fourth inning. The veteran infielder has hit safely in eight straight games while scoring 10 runs along the way.

Jose Reyes went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

He led off the game with a double, stole third base and scored on a Wilmer Flores double. He was thrown out trying to steal third base again later in the game. He was back at shortstop today after making his first-ever start in the outfield on Tuesday. The controversial veteran has a weak .232/.298/.383 slash line with nine homers, 40 RBI and 54 runs in 118 games. Most of his limited fantasy value is derived from his speed -- he has 16 stolen bases in 21 attempts.
