NEW YORK (AP) — Jose Reyes appears ready to come off the disabled list.
The New York Mets star doubled and played six innings at shortstop Monday in a rehab game for Class-A Brooklyn. Mets manager Terry Collins said it looks as though Reyes will be activated Tuesday in time for the opener of a three-game series against St. Louis.
Leading the majors with a .354 batting average and 15 triples, Reyes has been sidelined since July 3 with a strained left hamstring. He was eligible to come off the disabled list Monday, but the Mets wanted him to test his leg in a game first.
Reyes went 1 for 3 and scored a run in Brooklyn’s 11-5 loss to Lowell.
