Mets place Reyes on DL

ReyesJose Reyes has hit the disabled list with a hamstring strain, the Mets announced Thursday.

Reyes, who was elected to start the All-Star Game at shortstop for the NL, has missed the last four games with the strain and will now miss the All-Star festivities. The Mets have maintained that Reyes only had a mild hamstring strain, but hamstrings are no joke -- especially when it comes to someone who relies on his wheels like Reyes.

Enrique Rojas of ESPN is reporting that doctors have told Reyes he will be shut down for three weeks, which means he will miss most of July and almost certainly remove his name from the trade market.

Reyes, who may be opening up secret contract extension talks with the Mets, is hitting .354/.398/.529 with 15 triples and 30 stolen bases. The batting average and triple tallies led all of baseball. With Reyes sidelined, Ruben Tejada is expected to get the bulk of playing time at short.

Report: Mets to place Reyes on DL

Never good news to read this......

This hurts.....and the Mets were playing decent baseball, 3 games over .500, yeah maybe out of Division race, and yes I know 6.5 out of WC.....but never know...

Question is, will Reyes be the same when he comes back? I don't think so, as when you start to favor things like that, injuries will pop up all over the place......Don't get me wrong, I sure hope not...

Can you guess whose trade value just dropped? Maybe Reyes should be nicknamed "Oucho Cinco".

Shocking isn't it? Everytime he makes an All-Star team he gets hurt. You knew when they kept delaying him running, he would be put on the DL. Odds are he'll be out another week after the 3 weeks.

As some have pointed out, this may work to the Mets advantage in a long term deal. There are plenty of teams who were already wary about Reyes playing back-to-back years without an injury. This will limit those willing to go 4 or 5 years. The Mets may actually sew him up by overpaying a bit.

Jose is terrific, but everso fragile. Fortunately, the Mets have a pretty good young middle infielder to fill-in, when he's not there. Tejada may be the starting 2B man next year, but he's always a slow grounder from playing SS for a month. Tejada has become invaluable.

Now, Evans gets yet another chance to prove he can be a MLB player. The guy to his credit went to Buffalo and tore it up. This may be his last shot with the Mets to prove he has any worth.

"The Mets have maintained that Jeter...."  typo?  Freudian slip?  Wishful thinking?
