Jose Reyes returns to Mets after three-day bereavement leave

Jose Reyes is back with the Mets after spending three days on bereavement leave following his grandmother’s death.

He’ll be in the lineup for this afternoon’s game against the Pirates, with the Mets placing Taylor Buchholz on the disabled list to make room on the roster.

Even after missing three games Reyes leads the league in hits and triples in addition to ranking second in doubles and steals, third in batting average, and fifth in total bases.

Scott Lauber of the Philly Inquirer reports that the Phillies have agreed to terms with infielder Danny Espinosa. He’ll report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

This will be Espinosa’s fourth organization this year, as he has spent time under contract with the Yankees, Blue Jays and Dodgers in 2018, being released by all three teams after a few weeks. He last appeared in the big leagues in 2017, hitting a mere .173/.245/.278 in 93 games for the Angels, Mariners and Rays. He hit 20 homers a couple of times way back in the day, though, and I guess that — and the humility to accept minor league assignments — will earn you shots if you’re a good guy and you’re in decent shape.
