Reyes OK

10 Mar

While the Mets reported that Jose Reyes has an overactive thyroid, the Mets shortstop became the second Met to disagree with the Mets management, doctors and public relations department.

“The specialists who took care of me in New York have told me that I’m fine and that there’s nothing wrong with my thyroid,” Reyes told ESPN Deportes. “The test showed that I’m fine. We just have to wait for the results of the additional test. The (doctors) found inflammation in my throat and no medicine to treat the thyroid or any other condition has been prescribed.”

David Waldstein of The New York Times added more clarification this morning.

“We’re waiting for the final results tomorrow,” Peter E. Greenberg said from Arizona, “but all indications are that it’s the most minimal case of hyperthyroidism possible. The doctor was very pleased and so is Jose.”

Waldstein reported that Reyes may undergo more tests in the coming weeks and may also be cleared to play in the near future.

It is wonderful that he is healthy, but how does the player vs. team happen again. It started with Beltran and it greatly disturbed the Mets center fielder. Now, the star shortstop.

Perhaps the Mets need to do a better job keeping their information private until they meet with the player to develop a press release. They need to figure out how to be on the same page.
