Reyes Leaves Game With Tightness In Hamstring

NEW YORK (AP) — Jose Reyes left the New York Mets’ game against the Yankees on Saturday because of a tight left hamstring.

The Mets said Reyes felt tightness while beating out an infield single in the first inning and was removed as a precaution in the top of the third. Ruben Tejada replaced Reyes at shortstop.

Reyes has been one of baseball’s best players this season. He began the day leading the majors with a .352 batting average, 123 hits and 15 triples. He also led the NL with 65 runs scored. The speedy switch-hitter can become a free agent after the World Series.

Reyes has a history of leg injuries that limited the leadoff man to 53 games in 2004 and 36 games in 2009.

With one out in the first and a 3-2 count on Carlos Beltran, Reyes broke for second but wasn’t running full speed as he looked back in toward the plate.

Beltran was called out on strikes and it appeared Reyes would be hung up. But shortstop Eduardo Nunez couldn’t handle the throw from catcher Russell Martin, and Reyes scampered safely back to first.

    I assume, since you’re obviously a Yankee fan, you would say that Teixeira is having an awful season since he’s only batting .240.

    Reyes isn’t paid to hit triples but to score runs, which, again, he’s cracked the 100 number plateau only three times in nine seasons. He’s an exciting player to watch but his numbers are pedestrian. I’m not lying. Look them up. Texiera is a 30, 100 player for his entire career except for his first year. he’s on his way to the Hall. And you can’t possibly be serious comparing an immortal like Cobb with Reyes. That’s laughable. Again, look up those numbers. They’re ridiculous.

    Pop Goes the Weasel. Jose’ just cost himself a few bucks, injury prone legs is the wild card.

    It’s amazing how three months can wipe away a whole career of a slightly above average performance. I nine seasons with the Mets Reyes has hit 300 or better only twice, he’s scored over a hundred runs in only three of those years, has hit double digit home runs in less than half that time. I don’t care about injuries. Injuries that make a difference in a superstar’s career are reserved for player’s like Griffey who was on pace to blow up the league.Which brings me to the point that Reyes is far from superstar status. Predrioa is a better player. I’d take him over Reyes any day. And I’m a Yankee fan. The best player in baseball? And they say that Derek Jeter is overrated. A player whose hit over 300 for thirteen out of fifteen seasons.

      The only other player to have more triples and stolen bases through his first 1,000 games is Ty Cobb. And if you’re basing everything on batting average, then I assume, since you’re obviously a Yankee fan, you would say that Teixeira is having an awful season since he’s only batting .240.

      correction: .300 for eleven out of fifteen. But still, not too bad.
