Jose Reyes may need up to three weeks of rest for his ailing hamstring. In that case, he would return right around the July 31 trading deadline, if not afterward. But for those fans that think Reyes has played his last game in blue and orange, think again.
The trading deadline is a little over five weeks away. The Mets are just two games under .500 and five games behind in the wild card race. Does that make them buyers? It just might, according to Mets COO Jeff Wilpon.
