The Mets already lost Dan Murphy for the season with a torn left MCL, but Jose Reyes will to join Murph on the disabled list. Reyes actually got injured before Murphy in game the other night, but the severity of Reyes’ injury wasn’t determined until more recently. According to sources, Reyes strained the same exact hamstring he strained back in July–the same strain that sent him to the DL.
Reyes has been enjoying arguably his finest career season. The shortstop has posted a .336/.377/.507 line with 5 homeruns, 26 doubles, 16 triples, 37 RBI, 80 runs, and 34 stolen bases. While his 6.5 BB% is relatively low (compared to the league, not his career averages), his sensational 6.5 K% and incredible 90.4 contact% have more than made-up for it.
With Carlos Beltran, Ike Davis, Dan Murphy, and now Jose Reyes gone, the Mets’ offense is merely a shell of its former self. Replacing Reyes’ offense with Ruben Tejada will not be sufficient, so Mets fans must brace themselves for the worst.
