Per KFFL:

Updating previous reports, Bobbie Dittmeier, of MLB.com, reports New York Mets SS Jose Reyes (thyroid) will rest, refrain from athletic activities and make changes to his diet, according to treatment prescribed by doctors and specialists. ESPN.com reports Reyes will miss two to eight weeks to allow his thyroid levels to normalize, according to Reyes' agent.

Rotoworld says it will be 2-8 weeks before he resumes baseball activity. This means 10 weeks for you non-Mets fans who may get confused.

2 to 8 weeks is a huge span of time. I'm starting to not trust the media sources on Reyes' condition.

can we get a doctor on call in the cafe?

From what I've read, the time frame is wide because the treatment is just rest and some dietary changes.
There will be no meds involved. It's just a matter of how quickly his body turns around on its own.

I wouldn't say a DL stint is an absolute at this point. If he's on the low end of the recovery time, he could still be back in time for opening day.

I read somewhere that Reyes doesn't recall being sick recently, but said he has been eating a lot of shellfish. Additionally, I read another article saying that iodine ingestion via diet causing hyperthyroidism would mean that recovery time would be rather quick - since it's almost impossible to ingest enough seafood to cause a serious imbalance.

I'm, therefore, a little more optimistic that most considering what I've read about the actual diagnosis and treatment.

The Met nighmare continues.

Beltran and Reyes missing all of April
Tough schedule
Ticket sales down

They get off to a bad start and there will be "Bring back Bobby V" chants by May 1st.

For those unhappy with Omar & Manual you might get your wish real soon.

Season is almost over before it starts.

I'd like to be optimistic too, but according to Aaron Gleeman @ Hardballtalk.com:

General manager Omar Minaya and agent Peter Greenberg just announced that Jose Reyes will "refrain from athletic activity" for 2-8 weeks after follow-up tests showed that his thyroid levels rose again when he did controlled physical activity this week.

He's expected to begin the season on the disabled list, and in addition to resting will be asked to make changes to his diet. According to a statement released by the team: "The doctors will monitor Jose's thyroid levels through regular blood tests. Once Jose's thyroid levels return to normal, he will be cleared to resume baseball activities."

In other words, Reyes is now out indefinitely. Eight weeks of inactivity plus some time to get back into playing shape would put his return date around late May or early June, and while the eight weeks is the far end of the timetable given this afternoon it's hard to really consider it the "worst-case scenario" considering how things have gone with the story so far.

I'm almost starting to feel sorry for Mets fan at this point. Alex Cora is the Opening Day shortstop, unless they rush another 20-year-old prospect to the majors, of course.
