Reyes says hamstring injury is 'nothing big'

Jose ReyesJose Reyes is day-to-day with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, the Mets announced following Sunday's game. Grade 1 is the lowest level of strain.

"Just a little bit of a strain. I mean, nothing big," Reyes said according to the Associated Press. "I know we're going to take it one day at a time and see what happens, but it's real good news. Today when I got up, I felt even better than yesterday. So that's very good news."

Reyes underwent an MRI on Sunday and hopes to return to the team's lineup by Tuesday. He left Saturday's game after pulling up lame following an infield single, favoring his left hamstring. He didn't play Sunday, but was scheduled to travel with the team to Los Angeles after Sunday's game.

Before Sunday's game it was announced Reyes had been voted the starting shortstop for the National League in the All-Star Game. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said the team would be cautious with Reyes' rehab and hinted the team could keep him out until the All-Star break, leaving Reyes' availability for the game in doubt.

"We'll just see how he responds and the symptoms he demonstrates over the next few days," Alderson told the AP. "I'm sure he'll want to play. I'm sure he'll want to play in the All-Star game, etc. That's something we have to look at."

Really Feliciano and Soriano.  They are no Jason Bay.  He cost a hell of a lot more and by playing he hurts more.

Reyes says hamstring injury is 'nothing big'

The Mets will put the best offer on the table for Jose in the offseason and re-establish themselves as a major player in the market.  Investors usually help with those kind of things.  Especially the $200 million kind of investors.  Beltran will be gone though.  Time for the Metropolitans to give Fernando Martinez an every-day shot next year.  It's time.
Good post until the highlighted sentence.

Are you a Mets fan? If you are, you have to be kidding me? This guy is always hurt and when he's not, he never produces. He's the most overhyped Mets prospect ever. He is even worse than Escobar and Ochoa. Besides being hurt, he can't hit, field nor run the bases. The guy fell on his face fielding a flyball, failed to run out a dropped pop up and has an under .200 life-time average in his appearances here. He's only here because they need someone to sit for a few days while Harris mourns his son's death.

If you're not a Mets fan, then let me tell you who more than likely will be playing RF next year @ Citifield. It's a real prospect by the name of Kirik Nieuwenhuis, who plays CF for their AAA team. He can hit, run and field. He has an over .400 OBP% and over .500 SLG%. He's also produced in the minors unlike the over-hyped flop named Martinez.

let him play in the Summer Classic and use this week to shower  him with offers...
 Nice name, but do you follow baseball at all? Reyes' stated he's not listening to any offers in season. Also, if he doesn't play 7 regular season games, he shouln' play in a meaningless All-Star game.

even the Met's can't screw this one up....can they?
 Yeah, they could've re-signed Feliciano. Or maybe Soriano. How did those moves go?

Reyes says hamstring injury is 'nothing big'

great news..i'm a huge Mets fan, and realize he's probably leaving
I thought he was a goner, but I think Sandy will make every effort to keep him. If he leaves, I think all the talk about wanting to remain a Met was posturing. According to sources, Sandy is prepared to offer him a bid deal. My guess 5 years in the 100 million + range.

Reyes should play when he's ready. If he's healthy by Tuesday, he should play. Odds are, he'll probably be held out at least until the weekend. If he doesn't play this week, he shouldn't play in a meaningless exhibition game.

What's sad, if he plays and gets injured, that might make it easier to sign him. Teams may back off of him once again seeing him as injury prone. You wish it weren't true, but it really is.

Btw, when are the Mets going to fire their trainer Ray Ramirez? This guy is the real life Dr.Nick Riviera.

Reyes says hamstring injury is 'nothing big'

I am playing the Reyes team this week and I was hoping for at least a grade II strain or slight tear.  That would keep him out until after the All-Star game.  A grade I can easily be strained agsin though with a quick burst.

If I was part of the Mets brass, I would have Reyes idle until after the all-star break.  With seven games left before the all-star break, I wouldn't take a risk having Reyes re-injure his hamstring again, even though, Reyes would like to be in the lineup as early as Tuesday.  Glad his injury is not severe that could've require him to miss significant playing time.
