CHICAGO — New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes may need surgery to repair his torn right hamstring tendon.
The Mets say Reyes is still getting physical therapy for the torn tendon behind his knee and that surgery is an option. The speedy infielder has been on the disabled list since May.
Reyes went on the DL May 26, retroactive to May 21. Earlier this month he returned to New York from rehab in Port St. Lucie, Fla., to be examined by team doctors.
Reyes has played in only 36 games this season with a .279 batting average, one of several key players the Mets have missed to injuries, along with Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado, and Johan Santana.
Star third baseman David Wright, who had a concussion, could be activated Tuesday.
Alex Rodriguez winced as he made his way down the first-base line on Tuesday, having been drilled on the left elbow for the second time in the Yankees’ past five games.
While Rodriguez certainly wouldn’t claim the repeated bruising is helping his performance at the plate, he also isn’t about to use it as an excuse. For the time being, Rodriguez is prepared to keep moving forward.
“I’m not really concerned,” Rodriguez said prior to Wednesday’s series finale with the A’s. “I’m probably just dealing with a little bit of a back [issue] and my elbow. It’s all part of it. I feel pretty good up there. I felt really good up there last night. I had five quality at-bats.”
Rodriguez was hit in the first inning on Tuesday by Athletics starter Vin Mazzaro, and his reaction was exacerbated by the fact that it came on almost the same tender spot where a fastball from the Blue Jays’ Shawn Camp landed in the 11th inning on Aug. 12 in New York.
I never think about tenses when I hear Latin Americans speak English. If it’s their second language, you can’t blame them for being technically imperfect. Then again …
I definitely was a little bit careless back in those days when I was buying supplements, vitamins over the counter. Legal supplements, legal vitamins over the counter. But I never buy steroids or use steroids.
Past tense for the first sentence, present tense for the second. Was that an intentional slip by David Ortiz in Saturday’s news conference? Did he pull a Sammy Sosa and dumb himself down? Technically, he didn’t lie if he isn’t buying or using steroids right now. Of course, nobody was asking about right now. We wanted to know what caused Big Papi’s positive PED test in 2003. And the answer was, “I never buy or use steroids.” Present tense intended to be past tense. Or maybe not.

These are the things baseball makes you consider in 2009. You study favorite players the same way you’d study a potentially cheating spouse or girlfriend. You analyze tenses, soak in body language, search for double meanings. You try to catch them in lies. You compare their facial expressions with ones from the past, almost as if you’re sitting at a poker table with them. You evaluate a pattern of performance and hope everything adds up. You worry about good memories becoming tainted by other ones. You worry.
The word “taint” can go a number of ways. Some interpret it as “ruin.” I think of it more like “affect.” The shadow of that effect depends on the person — how optimistic you are, how forgiving you are, how spiteful you are — but the shadow never totally disappears. On Saturday, when ESPN Classic showed Game 6 of the 2004 American League Championship Series (the Bloody Sock game), I watched it a little differently. Yes, it made me happy and brought back some fond memories. But I couldn’t help seeing Ortiz and Manny and thinking, “Do they look bigger then? Were they using? Did they inject each other with the needles? Was it a big needle orgy before every game? Am I overthinking this?”
Again, just a shadow. But I could see it. Will it fade away over time? Will it get bigger? That’s the part I cannot figure out.
DETROIT — David Ortiz doesn’t think that his season-long slump has anything to do with his eyes. At this point, though, he’s willing to try just about anything.
Ortiz, who didn’t play in Boston’s 6-3 win over Detroit Thursday, is hitting .187 with just one home run this season.
“I’ve been thinking about getting my eyes checked — for real,” he said. “My vision has always been 20-20, and I’m not feeling anything crazy, but I’m going to get it checked out.”
Ortiz’s struggles have been obvious enough that Tigers manager Jim Leyland said that he and his coaching staff discussed abandoning the radical shift they have customarily used against him. While they eventually chose to continue using it, they did alter how far they played Ortiz to pull, moving shortstop Adam Everett back to the third-base side of second and putting centerfielder Curtis Granderson closer to straightaway.
Ortiz went 1-for-5 in the series opener, hitting into a double play and striking out three times, but had better success on Wednesday. He flew out to the wall in the deepest part of Comerica Park, then hit a two-run, bases-loaded double.
WASHINGTON — San Francisco Giants left-hander Randy Johnson, bidding for his 300th career victory, left Thursday’s first game of a doubleheader against the Washington Nationals with a 2-1 lead after six innings.
After a 36-minute rain delay before the start of the game, Johnson no-hit Washington for four innings until Elijah Dukes led off the Nationals’ fifth with a single up the middle. Johnson yielded just one other hit, Nick Johnson’s sixth-inning RBI double. Randy Johnson also walked two and struck out two.
Johnson sought to become the 24th pitcher to reach the 300-win level. The Nationals were a fitting opponent for Johnson, who started his professional career with that franchise when it was known as the Montreal Expos.
Johnson, 45, was trying to become just the sixth left-hander to achieve the 300 milestone and the fifth pitcher in the last 50 years to do it on his first attempt, joining Warren Spahn, Steve Carlton, Gaylord Perry and Tom Seaver.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Johnson also would become the second-oldest pitcher to reach the 300 mark — behind only Phil Niekro, who achieved the feat when he was 46 years and 188 days old on Oct. 6, 1985. Johnson is 45 years and 267 days old.
Johnson would be the seventh pitcher in Giants history to win 300 games while pitching for the franchise at some point in his career. He’d also be the fourth to hit that plateau as a Giant, joining Tim Keefe, Mickey Welch and Christy Mathewson.
NEW YORK — When justifying his decision to reinsert Chien-Ming Wang into his starting rotation, Yankees manager Joe Girardi likes to allude to the 46 games Wang won for the team over two-plus wildly productive seasons. But Wang has not won a game for the Yankees this year.
Melky Cabrera has essentially won four.
The latest of those came Thursday afternoon, when Cabrera’s tie-breaking home run in the eighth inning diverted the attention of 45,713 fans from Wang’s inconsistencies, and toward the left-field wall. There, Cabrera’s shot landed just out of reach of leaping left fielder David Murphy, sending the Yankees to an 8-6 win over the Rangers.
“He has a knack for doing that,” Girardi said.
