The Mets won’t talk to Jose Reyes about a contract extension this spring

Jose Reyes

Not talking about contract extensions during spring training is the new black. Adam Rubin:

Sandy Alderson says “unlikely” any extension talks with Jose Reyes during spring training.

Word on the street is that it has nothing to do with whether the Mets truly want Reyes back on a long term deal. It’s just that, given all that’s happening with team ownership, they really want to keep an eye on the number of mobile minutes they use this spring.  They’re roaming in Florida, after all, and that gets expensive fast.

    I think they just want to see if the guy can play more than 100 games in a season.

      While I do appreciate your point about his injury history, there’s only been one season in the last 6 where Reyes played LESS than 133 games.

    This may shock y’all, but the comment section’s resident Twins fan is really hoping the Twinkies can land Reyes in a mid-season deal. Alex Wimmers? Ben Revere? Sure, have at ‘em…give us Jose!!

    I think this is the right approach. You have to see how many games he can play

    If I were the Mets management I wouldn’t wait to long. He’s a young guy his future is ahead of him. If the Mets wait to long and then try to “low ball” him on a contract he will see what his value is on the open market. With the exception of the injuries in 2009 he has put up some very good numbers over his career.
