Jose Reyes hasn’t played since aggravating his strained right oblique muscle Thursday and Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News reports that he “will almost certainly miss all four games” of the series against the Braves that begins tonight in Atlanta.
Reyes tried to take batting practice yesterday, but had to stop after six swings and said afterward that “something was there” in the injured oblique. Jerry Manuel indicated that Reyes is available to pinch-run or play defense, because apparently only hitting bothers him.
He originally suffered the injury in early June, but has for the most part played through the discomfort while batting .328 with 26 extra-base hits and 14 steals in 59 games since.
