Mets Activate Jose Reyes From Bereavement List

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Hot-hitting shortstop Jose Reyes has been activated from the bereavement list and was back in the Mets’ starting lineup for Thursday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Reyes missed three games following the death of his grandmother, Maria Trinidad Reyes.

Reyes, who can become a free agent after the season, was batting .335 with 17 RBIs and 19 stolen bases before going on the bereavement list. He’s among the league leaders in batting average, runs, hits, doubles, steals and total bases.

New York made room for Reyes by putting reliever Taylor Buchholz on the disabled list with right shoulder fatigue. The move is retroactive to May 30.

The shortstop was in the news Wednesday after a report surfaced indicating David Wright, not Reyes, could be traded from New York this season.

    Was Reyes raised by his grandmother? I’m asking because people were a bit upset when Bay took a 2 days off due to the birth of his child, who’s wife was having a bit of complications before giving birth, even Collins stated that in the old days the players never left the team because of the birth of a child.

    Reyes seems to be getting a free pass on leaving to attend his grandmother’s burial. One day off yes, but 4 days off. Bay returned after just 2 days.
