Jose Reyes aggravates right oblique strain, exits game

Leave a comment

Mets shortstop Jose Reyes spent close to a month on the disabled list earlier this season due to an oblique injury.  He might be going back on the disabled list now for the very same reason.

According to New York’s WFAN radio, Reyes was lifted from Thursday’s game in the second inning after re-aggravating that right old oblique strain.  The Mets are calling the injury mild, but chances are he is going to require a lengthy amount of rest.

Reyes, 27, has hit .287/.323/.423 this season with eight home runs and 44 RBI in 477 at-bats.  The Mets are 9.5 games behind the Braves in the National League East and seven games behind the Giants in the hunt for the NL Wild Card.  It might make sense to give him all the time he needs to heal.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
