We can probably cool that talk about Carl Crawford money. At least for now.
Reyes apparently felt tightness while beating out an infield single in the bottom of the first inning. Oddly, he stayed in the game though the bottom of the second inning before being replaced by Ruben Tejada at shortstop to begin the top of the third.
The Mets are calling Reyes’ exit “precautionary,” though his history with hamstring injuries naturally raises some level of concern. On the bright side, this isn’t the same hamstring that he tore in 2009.
Reyes, 28, currently leads the majors with a .354 batting average, 124 hits and 15 triples. He has appeared in 80 of the Mets’ 83 games this season.
