The New York Mets have lost five straight and are now only a half game ahead of the fourth-place Washington Nationals in the National League East. As much as the Mets could use an offensive boost right now, the team won’t be getting the help of its four-time All-Star shortstop, Jose Reyes, anytime soon.
Reyes went on the disabled list on Aug. 8 with a strained left hamstring and won’t be returning when his 15 days are up, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. In fact, before Sunday’s 5-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, Manager Terry Collins said Reyes hasn’t even resumed any activity, the paper reports.
Reyes, of course, was having a fantastic season, hitting .336 with 144 hits, 80 runs scored, 34 stolen bases, and 16 triples. He’ll be a free agent at season’s end.
