New York Mets

Another important New York Mets position player lands on the DL.

The latest Met to hit the DL is shortstop Jose Reyes.

Reyes suffered an intercostal strain on a swing in Tuesday’s doubleheader. He missed the next few days but was hoping to come back this weekend.

The strain has not healed and the Mets will not take any more chances with him.

This came right after the Mets placed outfielder Juan Lagares on the DL with a thumb injury.

With a spot open, the Mets signed outfielder Justin Ruggiano and placed him in tonight’s lineup – playing center field.


Reyes’s latest DL stint adds to an even more crowded list of injured Mets – such as, Matt Harvey, David Wright, Lucas Duda.

New York is on a three-game losing streak, scoring one run in each of their last two loses.

Reyes’ potential return is unknown at this point.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
