From WFAN in New York comes word that Mets shortstop Jose Reyes had to be removed from Sunday’s series finale against the Braves after complaining of tightness in his left hamstring.

Yes, the same hamstring that sent him to the disabled list for over two weeks in July.

Willie Harris entered the game to cover second base with Justin Turner sliding over to short.

Reyes is likely to rest for the next couple of days no matter the severity of the renewed discomfort, and he might need a couple more weeks off if Mets trainers deduce that he suffered another strain.

The 28-year-old impending free agent is batting .336/.377/.507 with five home runs, 16 triples, 34 stolen bases and 80 runs scored through 98 games this season. He was 0-for-1 before making his early exit Sunday.

    Reyes should talk to Rollins about nursing a Hammy back to health.

    Looks like it just got worse… Constanza just had a terrible (not dirty I think) into 2nd base and seemed to do major damage to Daniel Murphy’s knee :'(

    Fuck the Braves
