The Mets received the best news of Spring training so far when superstar shortstop Jose Reyes was medically cleared to resume baseall activties Tuesday. According to team officials, he will join the team Wednesday and has not been ruled out for Opening day on April 5th. Reyes left the team almost 3 weeks ago after tests during a physical exam detected an overactive thyroid. He was ordered to rest while monitoring his diet for a period(Seafood is being blamed for this outbreak due to the iodine content) that ranged from 2 to  8 weeks. #7 and the Mets have escaped a potentially catastrophic situation with a  best case scenario health wise. Reyes, internal issues aside, looks to be in tremendous condition and mentally, this has to lift both he and the team.  Add this to the rumors that CF Carlos Beltran is progressing well and might be back as early as May 1st, and the news generating from Port St. Lucie is positive.

BLOGGERS OPINION: Mets should procede with caution regarding their shortstop. While it would be nice to have him  back  on day 1, the season is a marathon. Reyes is coming off surgery and if management has any apprehension here, they should go the safe  route. With the recent history regarding the Mets and injuries, the club cannot afford to botch this!

Doctors have advised all star shortstop Jose Reyes to rest without physical activity for a period of 2-8 weeks, while he deals with an overactice thyroid. He is likely to start the season on the disabled list and the Mets will start  either veteran INF Alex Cora or rookie Ruben Tejada(my choice!) at the spot. The positive news out of this? This condition is treatable and not considered serious.

BLOGGERS OPINION: This is not good but people need to calm down. This is not the 2009 version of the NY Mets, this club has made significant improvements at 3 positions offensively(LF, C and RF) comparable to the 2009 opening day lineup(A club many picked to win the World Series, raise your hands, Sports Illustrated!). 3b David Wright has looked great in camp and Luis Castillo is better than u think.(Look at his stats!) This is a solid offense without them, a great one with.  This club would surely be better with Reyes and CF Carlos Beltran on it from day 1 but the key to this team is real simple: Oliver Perez, John Maine and Mike Pelfrey must be good, if they are not, this team will be bad. Reyes or no Reyes, Beltran or no Beltran.  Plain and simple.

BREAKING NEWS: Reyes has a thyroid related medical condition

by @ 10:24 am. Filed under 2009 Mets

SS Jose Reyes has returned to New York for further testing after a physical exam found he has an imbalance in his thyroid levels. He will have tests Monday and it could take up to 48 hours for results. The speedy shortstop will not take part in any physical activity until this situation is cleared up.

BLOGGERS OPINION: This has to be a blow to the Mets, Reyes played in only 36 games in 2009 after battling a torn hamstring.  Most reports have Jose looking great and this clearly puts a damper on camp.
