Jose Reyes won’t be ready to return from DL when eligible

1 Comment

Jose Reyes is eligible to come off the disabled list on August 23, but yesterday manager Terry Collins indicated that the shortstop returning from his injured hamstring then is highly unlikely.

Reyes was initially given a 2-3 week recovery timetable and has yet to begin baseball activities, so it’s hard to imagine him making it back in just 15 days.

Ruben Tejada has made all seven starts at shortstop in Reyes’ absence, with Angel Pagan filling the leadoff spot.

And of course the longer he’s gone the more speculation there will be about how much free agent money Reyes is losing because of injuries.
