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

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.
