With the Amazin's expected to activate José Reyes before today's game against Miami, it creates numerous options. Many fans were excited when the news broke out that Reyes was signed, but it hasn't been all that great for the former star.
Reyes struggled in Binghamton as well as in Brooklyn for the Cyclones. Not only did he struggle at the plate, batting just .176, but he was very inconsistent in the field. Reyes was signed as a "super-utility" player and was expected to play 3B but with the sudden emergence of Wilmer Flores, a question begins to linger: where and when will he play?
Over the past two games, Flores has really put pressure on the Mets to try and take him out of the lineup. He's batted 7-9 in the last two games, a fantastic .777! He has also cleaned himself up in the field recently. With him playing like this it makes fans wonder: when will we see Reyes in action? Wherever the Mets decide to play him, he adds a veteran presence, a familiar face, and hopefully some speed to the team.
