"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."For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
