Jose Reyes has been rehabbing since approximately the Bronze Age. Now it seems that rehab is not enough According to Adam Rubin, Reyes’ hamstring tendon is completely torn and he needs surgery. Oddly enough, that prognosis may be good news in that the tendon in question is the one that doctors often remove and replace in a guy’s elbow for Tommy John surgery, so Reyes could probably live without it. Of course, the guys who get Tommy John surgery tend not to be leadoff hitters who play critical defensive positions, so who knows?
At this rate, however, I think the Mets will take anything short of guys’ legs falling completely off as good medical news.
