Report: Reyes to begin rehab assignment Thursday

Mets shorstop Jose Reyes may have been on his way to an MVP season, but he has been placed on the disabled list twice with hamstring issues. He's nearly recovered from his second bout with the hammy issue, because he will reportedly start a rehab assignment at Double-A Binghamton Thursday. He's expected to play three or four games before being activated from the DL (ESPN New York via Twitter), meaning he should be back in the lineup before September.

Reyes will obviously boost the Mets' offense, but his return to the field is interesting for a different reason. The Mets are 15 games out in the NL Wild Card race, so they won't be figuring in postseason play, barring a miracle stretch even the Rockies haven't pulled off. Reyes will, however, be a free agent at the conclusion of the season. Should he stay healthy and close the month of September on a strong note, he'll command a pretty huge salary on the free agent market. If he injures himself again -- especially if he hurts his hamstring again -- it will cost him millions.

Reyes, 28, is one of the most dynamic players in baseball when he's healthy. He has speed, some power and an enthusiasm for the game that makes him easy to root for. He's hitting .336/.377/.507 with 34 steals and 80 runs in 98 games and is still leading the majors with 16 triples.
