Jose Reyes (arm) is starting at second base on Thursday afternoon in Colorado.

It'll be his first start at second base since way back in 2004, though he did play six innings there on Wednesday night after coming off the bench. Reyes had been sidelined for a couple of days with a bruised arm.
Aug 3 - 12:54 PM

Jose Reyes (arm) finished 1-for-3 with a run scored in the Mets' win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

Reyes was held out of the starting lineup due to a bruised arm, but he entered to play second base in the bottom of the fourth inning and then finished out the eventual 10-5 victory. The veteran infielder got struck by a 98 mph James Paxton fastball Sunday in Seattle.
Aug 3 - 8:50 AM

Jose Reyes (arm) served as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Rockies.

Reyes was held out of the Mets' starting lineup after taking a James Paxton fastball off his arm in Sunday's series finale against the Mariners. X-rays turned up negative.
Aug 2 - 8:38 AM

Jose Reyes (arm) is not in the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Rockies.

Reyes is still feeling the effects of a James Paxton fastball that struck his arm Sunday against Seattle. Amed Rosario will handle shortstop in his absence. Now that the prodigy Rosario has finally arrived in the big leagues, Reyes may see more action at third base going forward.
Aug 1 - 6:32 PM

Jose Reyes is considered day-to-day after X-rays on his injured forearm came back negative on Sunday.

Reyes was drilled in the arm by a 98 mph fastball from James Paxton on Sunday and said that afterwards he couldn't feel his fingers. It sounds as though he should be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Jul 30 - 7:39 PM

Jose Reyes was lifted from Sunday's game against the Mariners after being hit in the forearm by a pitch from James Paxton.

He'll likely head for X-rays. If Reyes is forced to go to the disabled list, that could lead the Mets to calling up top prospect Amed Rosario a bit earlier than they anticipated.
Jul 30 - 5:50 PM

Jose Reyes finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Saturday's win against Colorado.

Reyes has certainly enjoyed facing his former team, going 5-for-9 with four runs scored, a homer and two RBI in the first two games of the series. He has heated up nicely in the month of July, going 14-for-35 (.400) with four doubles, three homers and five RBI in nine outings to raise his average from .202 to .225. Reyes has recorded six multi-hit games in his nine July performances.
Jul 15 - 10:36 PM

Jose Reyes finished 0-for-4 in the Mets' loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

The veteran infielder showed some spark during the first week of July, but his offensive struggles returned in Sunday's series finale at Busch Stadium. Reyes is batting just .215/.284/.370 in 83 total games this season for the Mets.
Jul 9 - 4:48 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

Reyes stayed back on a Carlos Martinez off-speed pitch and yanked it just over the right field wall for a solo shot. The homer was his eighth of the year and his second in as many games. It hasn't always been pretty -- the 34-year-old is batting just .214/.285/.374 in 81 games -- but Reyes has 10 steals to go with those eight homers while filling in for the departed David Wright at third base, and also logging time at shortstop, this year.
Jul 8 - 1:03 AM

Jose Reyes tripled, drew a walk, and scored a run in Friday’s victory over the Phillies.

Reyes has been straddling the Mendoza line for nearly two months now. He’s back up to .202 after this one. The 34-year-old has been more productive over the past three weeks, but he’s in the bottom-third of the order now and top prospect Amed Rosario looms as a threat to take over the starting shortstop job in the second half.
Jun 30 - 10:12 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a lopsided win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

He delivered an RBI single in the first inning, then scored on a Brandon Nimmo single in the eighth. It's been an awful season for the veteran shortstop but he seems to be playing better lately. He got his batting average over the Mendoza line with today's performance. He is batting .202/.276/.333 with six home runs, 25 RBI and 32 runs scored. His fantasy saving grace is his 10 stolen bases in 11 tries. He stole a career-high 78 bases back in 2007 but those days are long gone.
Jun 29 - 12:23 AM

Jose Reyes finished 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Monday's game at L.A. Dodgers.

The performance was impressive considering both shots came off of Clayton Kershaw. Reyes passed Keith Hernandez for ninth place on the franchise RBI leaders list with 469. He is 6-for-15 (.400) with three homers and five RBI over the past four outings.

Jose Reyes went 2-for-3 and hit his fourth homer Friday off the Nationals' Max Scherzer.

Reyes's other three homers all came in a one-week span from April 27-May 1. He came into this one 4-for-43 with no extra-base hits in his previous 15 games. Even with Asdrubal Cabrera out, he hardly seems like a worthy stopgap in mixed leagues.
Jun 16 - 11:59 PM

Jose Reyes went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Braves.

The steal was Reyes' ninth of the season. He was also caught once in the contest. While the veteran third baseman remains a legitimate speed threat, he offers considerably less with the bat -- Reyes is hitting just .186/.261/.294 in 58 games played.
