Reyes (intercostal strain) has been ruled out Thursday and Friday, The Record's Matt Ehalt reports. Manager Terry Collins noted that having the DH for the Mets' games at the Yankees and at the Tigers next week is a consideration for not placing Reyes on the disabled list, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports. This makes it sound as though Reyes could be held out through Tuesday, as the Mets don't travel to Yankee Stadium until Wednesday, although at this point he has only been ruled out for the next two games. Wilmer Flores is starting at third base and hitting third Thursday.
Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain Tuesday and will be "out for a couple days," according to manager Terry Collins, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports. He went to the hospital for testing after Tuesday's doubleheader. It sounds like he will be out at least until Friday against the Rockies, and he could miss a good chunk of the weekend series. Wilmer Flores should start at third base in the meantime with Kelly Johnson serving as the utility infielder off the bench.
Reyes has a Grade 1 intercostal strain and will be out of the lineup for at least a few days, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Ryes may have suffered the injury in the first game of the Mets' doubleheader Tuesday. He was at the hospital during Game 2, which is when the injury was diagnosed. Wilmer Flores will see most of the action at third base while Reyes is sidelined.
Reyes is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Wilmer Flores will start at third as Juan Lagares leads off with Reyes on the bench following a 1-for-5 showing in Tuesday's matinee. Reyes is getting on base at just a .278 clip through 16 games, but he's already chipped in three homers, three stolen bases and nine runs scored.
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.
