Jose Reyes is Back

The New York Mets received good news today when they found out that Jose Reyes will be rejoining them in Florida. His thyroid levels have gone down and he is able to resume baseball activities starting tomorrow. It is not known right now when he will be able to get into a game and if he will be ready for opening day but for the Mets this is a good day. The fact that he is back is a good sign because I know when I heard 2-8 weeks I figured it would be the latter and who knows with the Mets. If Reyes doesn't start the season with the team he should be ready not too long after. The Mets did play a game today and defeated the Atlanta Braves by the score of 7-6. Oliver Perez made the start for the Mets and was his typical wild self. He pitched 4 1/3 innings and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits. He walked 4 and struck out 3. Jenrry Mejia was working on back to back days and looked good. He pitched a scoreless inning, Ryota Igarashi also pitched a scoreless inning. Bobby Parnell pitched a inning giving up 3 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and 1 strikeout. Sean Green pitched 1 inning giving up 1 hit, 2 runs and 1 walk. Alex Cora was 1-4 and Luis Castillo was 1-2 with 2 walks. Mike Jacobs was 1-1 with 2 rbi, David Wright drew a walk and Jason Bay was 1-4 with a rbi. Jeff Francoeur was 1-2 with a rbi and 2 walks, Gary Matthews Jr. was 2-4 with a rbi. The Mets will take on the Houston Astros tomorrow at Tradition Field at 1:10PM. Here are some notes and quotes from todays postgame. Jerry Manuel had this to say about Jose Reyes "I couldn't give you a timetable, but it sure is good to have him back." Here is what he said about a question of Reyes batting third. "We need Jose for the majority of the baseball season. We can't get caught up in opening day lineups." He talked about Jenrry Mejia and said he wouldn't start out as the 8th inning guy if he makes the team. Here is what he said "I'm comfortable with him and his adrenaline. It was good that he was able to pitch the way he did today, very impressive."
