Jose Reyes has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 intercostal strain.
Reyes went to a local hospital for tests after feeling a muscle tweak on his final swing of Tuesday afternoon's 3-2 loss to the Cardinals -- part of a traditional doubleheader at Citi Field. He did not play in the night game (a 3-1 win) and the Mets are expecting him to miss at least a couple of days. This could easily turn into a DL situation. Jul 26 - 11:04 PM

Jose Reyes went 1-for-5 with an RBI triple in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Reyes showed that despite his age (33), he still brings a strong speed element to play whenever he steps to the dish. In Sunday's case, he collected an RBI triple against Marlins starter Jose Urena in the third inning. Since the Mets called him up on July 5, the embattled third baseman is slashing .242/.284/.516 with three homers, eight RBI and three steals over the course of 62 at-bats. He has quietly picked up hits in eight of his last 10 games. He is worth a shot in NL-only and deeper mixed-league formats at this juncture.

Jose Reyes filled up the box score Friday against the Marlins by going 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base.

Reyes had a double and a pair of singles. He scored on a pair of sacrifice flies by Yoenis Cespedes. This was Reyes’ first three-hit game of the season and his first multi-hit game since July 10. He’s batting .250/.298/.538 overall. The Mets could use more games like this one from him.

Jose Reyes got some work in center field over the weekend.

Reyes' primary goal is getting more comfortable at third base, but he'll also continuing working in center field just in case. The Mets are also looking at Michael Conforto in center field, so anything is possible in this situation. No word on if Bartolo Colon has been ruled out as an option.

Jose Reyes hit a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Nationals.

Reyes connected for two solo home runs against Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez, hitting dingers in the first and third innings. In his first six games since being called up by the Mets on July 5, Reyes is 6-for-24 (.250) with three homers, two doubles, three RBI, and five runs scored. He has yet to steal a base, but there's reason to take a chance on him in deeper leagues as long as he's hitting leadoff in New York's lineup.

Jose Reyes hit his first home run of the year in a win over the Nationals on Thursday.

Reyes isn't known for his power, but he swatted a Lucas Giolito pitch down the right field line and into the upper deck for his first homer as a member of the Mets (again). It came in just his third game, and he's hit .231/.286/.615 in those three contests. The controversial figure could play a big role in the second half as the team's everyday third baseman.
Jul 8 - 12:16 AM

Mets purchased the contract of INF Jose Reyes from Double-A Binghampton.

The 33-year-old infielder is starting at third base and leading off in his return to the Mets lineup on Tuesday. Mets manager Terry Collins also indicated Tuesday that Reyes could see some time in center field as he jockeys his roster around to get as much offensive firepower as possible into the lineup.
Jul 5 - 4:38 PM

Jose Reyes is expected to be activated by the Mets on Tuesday.

Reyes went 0-for-4 with Double-A Binghamton on Monday and hit just .176 (6-for-34) through 11 minor league games, but the Mets apparently think he's ready to help the major league roster. The expectation is that he'll see most of his playing time at third base, likely as New York's leadoff hitter. Reyes has yet to play in the majors this season after serving a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife.
Jul 4 - 9:13 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Thursday that Jose Reyes would need another three-to-six games in the minor leagues before he's recalled.

Reyes is getting himself back into game shape while learning how to play third base at Double-A Binghampton. There was thought that with the injury to Curtis Granderson, the Mets may speed up the timeline to get Reyes in New York, but it appears his debut will have to wait until next week.
Jun 30 - 5:10 PM

Jose Reyes went 1-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI Wednesday with Double-A Binghamton.

Reyes had been 0-for-9 since inking a minor league contract with the Mets over the weekend. He snapped that on Wednesday. The veteran infielder could be called up to the majors in short order, possibly as soon as this weekend's playoff rematch with the Cubs.
Jun 29 - 10:21 PM

Jose Reyes went 0-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

After reaching on a fielder's choice, Reyes scored from second base on a single by prospect shortstop Amed Rosario. Reyes is now 0-for-9 since signing a minor league deal with the Mets over the weekend, but he's not concerned. "My body feels perfect," said Reyes. "I just need my timing, and some more action at third base." Reyes could join the Mets as soon as this weekend against the Cubs.
Jun 29 - 9:13 AM

Jose Reyes went 0-for-2 with a walk in his second game with Low-A Brooklyn on Monday.

Reyes played third base for seven innings and committed a fielding error. He's slated to move up to Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday and will likely join the Mets in about a week. He's expected to function as the team's leadoff man while playing multiple positions.
Jun 27 - 9:42 PM

Jose Reyes will join Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday.

Reyes went 0-for-3 with a walk and played six innings at third base Sunday in his first game with Low-A Brooklyn. He'll play another game at third base with the Cyclones on Monday before moving up to face advanced competition. Look for him to join the Mets in the next week or so.
Jun 27 - 4:46 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Jose Reyes will take over as the team's leadoff man when he arrives from the minors.

Curtis Granderson has been the primary leadoff man over the past two seasons, but he'll be moved to the middle of the order. Reyes is expected to see time at third base in the minors and potentially even the outfield in order to prepare him for a super utility role. The expectation is that he could be with the big club in 7-10 days. Asdrubal Cabrera is expected to remain the primary shortstop, but the Mets are hopeful that Reyes' speed will bring a new dimension to their lineup. By the way, David Wright still leads the Mets with three steals.
Jun 25 - 4:42 PM

Mets signed INF Jose Reyes to a minor league contract.

Reyes became a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday and it didn't take him long to officially reunite with the Mets. The plan calls for him to report to Class A Brooklyn on Sunday, where he's expected to play multiple positions before eventually joining the Mets in a utility role. The 33-year-old owns a .709 OPS since the start of 2014 and is coming off a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife, but the Mets are willing to take a chance on him to add some athleticism to their roster. "As I have expressed in the past, I deeply regret the incident that occurred and remain remorseful and apologetic to my family," Reyes said in a statement. "I have completed the counseling required by MLB, have been in ongoing therapy, and will continue with counseling going forward. I appreciate the Mets organization for believing in me and providing the opportunity to come back home to New York."
