Video: Jose Reyes Thyroid Problem

The Mets sent Jose Reyes back to New York after tests showed that he has a hyperactive thyroid. I don’t know if it’s a situation that could affect him on the field. I would guess there may be varying levels of severity, but I’m not a doctor. We should hear what impact, if any, this will have on Reyes playing the season and the rest of his career.

This news is a big blow to the Mets, with Carlos Beltran already out until May, because the flashbacks of last season’s injury-plagued disaster is still so fresh in our minds. Stephania Bell has a good piece on ESPN about what the injury could mean for Reyes going forward.

Here’s some video from ESPN:
