Mets' Reyes day-to-day with tendinitis

Newsday—May 21, 2009

The Mets did not immediately put Jose Reyes on the disabled list yesterday after returning from the West Coast. But they could always change their minds before tonight's series opener against the Red Sox if he does not show any improvement in his aching right knee.

Reyes flew to Boston with the team following Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Dodgers in Los Angeles, then quickly flew to New York, where he had an MRI at Hospital for Special Surgery early yesterday. The test revealed tendinitis behind the shortstop's right knee, which confirmed the same diagnosis he received Monday in LA.

As a result, Reyes will rejoin the Mets at Fenway Park today, but he is not expected to be in the lineup. He missed five games with the mysterious condition during the trip and didn't even make it through 12 innings before he had to be removed again.

Reyes aggravated the injury Wednesday trying to beat out a grounder. He took a few steps, stopped, then walked slowly to the dugout before being taken out. "I've been feeling it all the time," Reyes said afterward. "It's not feeling right at all."
