Jose Reyes heading to the disabled list

Jose Reyes

 Adam Rubin of ESPN NewYork reports that the Mets have “put the wheels in motion” toward placing Jose Reyes on the disabled list.  Which, given that I figured all of that involves nothing more than an email or a fax or something, can’t be a terribly complicated procedure requiring wheels to actually be put in motion, but it’s a nice turn of phrase all the same.

Or it could mean that there’s a road trip afoot: Rubin reports that Nick Evans is going to be called up from Buffalo, and given that the Mets are all the way out west right now. perhaps the wheels refers to Evans driving across the country to join the team, with severe budget limitations keeping him from flying. Which would be kind of fun, actually. On the way to California Evans could see the sights. Get in adventures. That kind of thing.
On a more serious note, this obviously means that Reyes’ hamstring is not doing so well. Rubin reports that he couldn’t run or do much of anything yesterday, and that the final decision to put him on the DL will come if and when Reyes is unable to run before today’s game, which is supremely likely.
Given how critical Reyes has been for the Mets this year, better to DL him now, with the All-Star break ahead, and make sure that he’s good to go for the second half.

    Anyone else wonder if this means we won’t see Reyes again until September? Why does it always seem like the Mets, and even the Phillies most recently, have been under-reporting injuries? Is medicine taking a step backwards or something? Madsen…oh he will be fine in a few days…out a month. It’s getting to be ridiculous how often this kind of thing is happening.

    I’m envisioning Nick Evans using all of the various cut-rate methods of transportation that the Indians used in Major League.
