Mets shortstop Jose Reyes spent close to a month on the disabled list earlier this season due to an oblique injury. He might be going back on the disabled list now for the very same reason.
According to New York’s WFAN radio, Reyes was lifted from Thursday’s game in the second inning after re-aggravating that right old oblique strain. The Mets are calling the injury mild, but chances are he is going to require a lengthy amount of rest.
Reyes, 27, has hit .287/.323/.423 this season with eight home runs and 44 RBI in 477 at-bats. The Mets are 9.5 games behind the Braves in the National League East and seven games behind the Giants in the hunt for the NL Wild Card. It might make sense to give him all the time he needs to heal.
