Well, then, that certainly bears watching. The kid really just needs more cuts against Major-League pitching and he'll come around. Of course, he needs to be on the field to accomplish that.

Grab Bay if it isn't too late. If it costs Reyes, so be it. But I'd see if there's someone else you don't need long-term.

It's tightness in his hamstring. Just a precautionary day off.

I wouldn't want him in my utility position at this point, but if he can match last year's #'s he would be great there if you need steals.

Like a bunch of people have said, the guy has been battling hamstring problems all spring and summer. Personally, I think he can match last year's #'s but it's gonna take him at least another week or two to get comfortable hitting.

I wouldn't expect too much out of Reyes for the rest of 2004. I'm sure there are going to be lingering effects of the hamstring injury, but in a dynasty/keeper league, he still has a great amount of value.

2-for-4 with a run tonight so far. This is like his ST and he's just starting to get his timing.

I stil have high hopes for Jose Reyes. I'm fortunate in that I have two solid players at ss and 2nd so I can wait for him to get comfortable.

It's nice to see a little power from him too. I'm hoping for a big second half ;-D

Reyes was one of the most highly regarded prospects, and proved last year that he could cut it on the ML level as well. I saw this kid play in the minors, and I can tell you that he has the tools - he just has to stay healthy. His hammy is worrisome as he is only 21 and has injured it many times already. Right now he just needs to stay healthy and get his timing back. If he can keep off the DL this kid should be able to hit .300 and swipe 40 if given a full season.

I think his hitting will start to pick up, but I am not expecting alot of SB's this year. Reyes is taking it very easy on his tender hamstring. Tonight, he roped a double and gingerly went around the bases and into second, he was not even thinking about the triple. I am not critizing him, I could understand his hesitance to run hard and reinjure himself, but it will defintely have a negative effect on his numbers this year. But I'd rather him stay healthy for the rest of the year, than to push it and be out for another extended period of time.
