David Wright called the trainers out to Reyes’ dismay. He wanted to stay in the game. The oblique injury flared up on him again. It’s clear that he isn’t well enough to be playing. He’s hit right-handed against righties for the last two days.
Reyes told reporters after the game that he won’t be able to play in the All-Star game. Rafael Furcal of the Dodgers will replace him on the All-Star roster.
I’m not sure where the Mets would look if he needs to go back on the disabled list. Reese Havens is tearing it up at Binghamton but he’s on the 7-day DL there. He would have been the obvious choice to come up and play second base and leave Ruben Tejada at short. If he can’t play, I’m not sure who they’ll add to the roster.
