Mets place Reyes on DL

The Mets announced Monday afternoon they have officially placed star shortstop Jose Reyes on the disabled list with a strained hamstring. As a corresponding move, Mike Baxter has been promoted from Triple-A Buffalo. Reyes is expected to miss two to three weeks.

Reyes, 28, is set to be a free agent at the end of this season and appeared in for a huge payday, but his second hamstring injury likely lessens the market for him a bit.  He's leading the majors in triples (16) and the NL in runs (80) and average (.336). Injuries, however, have been a concern with Reyes since 2008 and there aren't many teams that go throwing around five- or six-year contracts with injury-prone players.

Baxter, 26, is a Queens native. The Mets claimed the outfielder off waivers from the Padres on July 22. He was hitting .256/.341/.436 in 11 games before being recalled.

Typical contract year performance.  This is the way Reyes should have been playing for the last 10 years, but he's lazy.  Too lazy to even take an English class.  He could be the face of the franchise, with endorsment deals galore, but if you can't speak English you can scratch that.  He really is a waste of talent.  If he had been performing all along, he'd be the highest paid SS in MLB now.  Instead, he turns it on this season, so he can sign a big fat contract next season and once again perform well below his potential. AND NO ONE THAT GETS HURT AS MUCH AS REYES IS WORTH $14 MILLION!

For Mets fans eager for Reyes resigning, this might be a good thing: who's gonna pay "Crawford type $" for this injury machine except the one team that needs him for the box office?!  Epstein won't be that dumb, I'm sure.
