Contrary to what was reported yesterday on Sports Nite, Jose Reyes has stated that he is not yet ready to play. He is still hurting, as reported by Matthew Cerrone on MetsBlog.
Sports Nite originally stated that it looked like Reyes would be back tonight or tomorrow night because he was feeling better.
The Mets are playing the Washington Nationals. I do not see the need to have him play. Let him rest and get better.
Ramon Martinez is going to be playing shortstop. I say let him rest too since he was pulled in the eighth inning due to back pain from yesterday’s game against the Red Sox.
