Brian Costa of the Newark Star Ledger talked to New York Thyroid Center co-director Robert McConnell about Jose Reyes’ overactive thyroid gland:
I wouldn’t think he should be inconvenienced for more than a few weeks or a month or so. This should have absolutely no long-term affect on his career. Depending on the level of thyroid … and the time that it’s been present, it usually puts a stress on the muscles. People become weaker … so their endurance goes down.
Reyes never complained of any symptoms, but he’s scheduled to undergo further testing Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. In the meantime that quote should at least help Mets fans breathe a little easier over the weekend.
