According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Mets shortstop Jose Reyes saw 39 pitches in a minor league simulated game Monday and reported no issues with his once-overactive thyroid.
The live hitting session marks a significant step in his ongoing effort to get geared up for the start of the regular season. Time is not on Reyes’ side, but he’s still optimistic about manning shortstop for the Mets on Opening Day.
“My legs are good,” he told the New York Post. “I’ve been running the last five or six days. I’ve
been running 100 percent, so there is nothing to worry about on that
Reyes, 26, hit .279/.355/.395 with two home runs, 15 RBI and 11 stolen bases in the 36 games that he was healthy last season. He’s obviously hoping to avoid the disabled list altogether this year.
