Reyes, 26, is expected to begin playing in minor league simulated games soon and the Mets are hoping he will be able to make his Grapefruit League debut later this week.

“We’ll continue to follow the program the physical therapy people have,”
manager Jerry Manuel said. “Now we’re able to incorporate him into team
activities, which is good.

Reyes took infield and batting practice with teammates this weekend.  He batted .279/.355/.395 last season with two home runs, 15 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 36 games.

    i’m depending on Reyes for fantasy reasons. i’m sure he’ll be great….but he might have to take some of those red sox steroids

    It would be nice to have Reyes, but I hope the Mets do not hurry him back and then claim “bad medical advice”.

    Ah, I miss the days when Reyes was running 5 wind sprints and claiming he was ready for spring training.
