New York Mets infielder Jose Reyes will be make his second rehab assignment of the season with the Brooklyn Cyclones.
Reyes is attempting to return from a strain of his left intercostal muscle, an injury which has kept him on the disabled list since July 27.
Cyclones manager Tom Gamboa said Reyes will see playing time at third base and shortstop while with the ballclub.
“Jose will play third base tomorrow night for seven innings and then eight and nine are at his option, that’s on him,” Gamboa said following Brooklyn’s 5-4 win over Vermont, Wednesday night. “Friday he will play all nine at third and Saturday he will play all nine at shortstop.”
Reyes is hitting .239, in 16 games with the Mets this season, with eight runs batted in.
Re-adding Reyes to the mix can only help the Mets, they’re struggling to win ballgames and have fought an uphill battle against injuries to key players all season, specifically infielders David Wright, Lucas Duda, and Asdrubal Cabrea.
Reyes played two games with the Cyclones earlier this season to help get acclimated to third base after re-signing with the Mets.
