Reyes takes cuts against minor leaguers

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
part.”

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.

    Great news for the Mets. That added to Reyes being in the best shape in his life and the Mets must be the favorites in the NL East.

    And he didn’t pull a muscle! Woo hoo – progress! Hey, I’ll take whatever I can get right now…

    Question, for the FLB afficionados-
    Tulowitski for Reyes?
    Tulo is fairly consistent, great spring, very good SS. Reyes is better, maybe materially better, but injury-prone, and does he lose a step from last year with the injuries?
