Jose Reyes Out for 3-7 Days

Don’t worry — Jose Reyes is not injured. But he will miss at least three days, possibly up to seven, after the death of his grandmother.

From the Mets PR department:

NOTE: Jose Reyes found out this afternoon that his grandmother passed away. He is being placed on the Bereavement List (minimum 3 days – maximum 7 days). Reyes is flying home to Santiago, Dominican Republic. His roster replacement has not yet been named.

Considering that Reyes has been playing like a superstar through the first 50 games of the year — and few others on the team have been as offensively consistent — this is likely to put a dampener on the Mets’ offense, which is already without David Wright and Ike Davis.
