Surgery an option for Mets SS Reyes

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.
