Reyes went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs to account for all the Mets' offense Sunday in a 3-2 loss to the Nationals. He's shown surprising power in his return to the Mets, as five of his six hits so far have gone for extra bases (three homers and two doubles). Given that Reyes hit just seven home runs in 116 games last year and hasn't hit more than 11 in a season since 2008, don't expect that surge to continue in the second half.
Reyes went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and a walk Thursday against the Nationals. Reyes blasted his first homer of the year to bring the Mets within one run in a game they'd go on to win. After ripping two doubles Wednesday, he now has three extra-base hits in his first three games of the season.
Reyes will start at shortstop Wednesday against the Marlins, Maria Guardado of The Star-Ledger reports. With Asdrubal Cabrera being scratched from Wednesday's lineup, Reyes will move over to shortstop after playing third base in Tuesday's game. Reyes will look to improve after going 0-4 with a strikeout in his first game of the season.
Reyes, activated Tuesday, will lead off and play third base for the Mets. Reyes will make his much anticipated debut for the Mets as they take on the Marlins Tuesday. Reyes is expected to play mostly third base in place of Wilmer Flores moving forward. Reyes last played for the Mets in 2011. Reyes is worth a speculative add in fantasy leagues if he's still available as he could provide a much needed spark for the Mets lineup.
Reyes is traveling to New York and is expected to be activated Tuesday. Earlier reports Monday suggested the Mets would keep Reyes down in the minors for up to another week before bringing him up to the majors. Instead, the Mets have decided he has done enough in the minors and he will likely replace Wilmer Flores in the lineup at third base going forward.
