What that means for his return to baseball activities is unclear - yet. Omar Minaya will speak to reporters shortly to talk about Reyes' chances of being in the lineup for Opening Day. I think he still has a shot, but the Mets have to be careful about his legs, obviously. Reyes has only played in an intrasquad game this spring.
