Mets shortstop Jose Reyes has been sidelined since the beginning of July with a badly strained left hamstring. He’s made steady progress in the past week, though, and could return to New York’s starting lineup within the next couple of days.
According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, Reyes ran the bases on Sunday morning without feeling any lingering discomfort in his hamstring. He’s expected to join Single-A Brooklyn for a one-game rehab assignment Monday before returning to the Mets in time for Tuesday night’s series-opener against the visiting Cardinals.
Reyes, an impending free agent, has hit .354/.398/.529 this season with 15 triples, 22 doubles and 30 stolen bases in 380 plate appearances. The Mets are still hoping to sign him to an extension before the winter.
