Source: Reyes injury doesn't appear severe

8/7/2011

Jose Reyes' injury does not appear to be more serious than Sandy Alderson's original postgame announcement of a mild left hamstring pull, according to a source familiar with the subsequent examination. Reyes was sent to the Hospital for Special Surgery for an MRI after leaving Sunday's game.

Of course, Alderson noted, Reyes missed three weeks the last time he had a mild pull of that hamstring, earlier this season.

While the Mets immediately announced their intention to place Daniel Murphy on the disabled list and to call up Ruben Tejada for shortstop duty, Reyes was not immediately placed on the DL.
