Mets shortstop Jose Reyes has been cleared to return from the 15-day disabled list Monday after wrapping up a short minor league rehab assignment Saturday night at Double-A Binghamton with a 2-for-5 performance. This according to Adam Rubin, beat writer for ESPN New York.
Reyes came around to score each time he reached base and played eight innings at shortstop without feeling any lingering discomfort in the hamstring muscle that he strained in early August. He’s likely to start just one half of Monday’s doubleheader with the Marlins but should be available off the bench for the second game.
Reyes is batting .336/.377/.507 with five home runs, 16 triples, 34 stolen bases and 80 runs scored through 462 plate appearances this season. The 28-year-old is set to become a free agent this winter.
