Injured Reyes Attends All Star Game

Another year at the All Star game and Jose Reyes has to sit out because of injuries. Reyes has actually only played in one All Star game after being chosen four times.

Jose was trailing behind other National League shortstop Troy Tulowitski before a the greatest fans in baseball rallied behind their shortstop and successfully voted him in.

Reyes told the Daily News Sunday:

Me personally, every time I have the opportunity to come as an All Star, I do. I want to be around the other great players and be apart of it. It’s not a good feeling because I really want to play, but its better than not being here at all.

Reyes took batting practice Monday from both sides of the plate and planned to do light work in the weight room and walk on a treadmill, still nursing his hamstring.

When asked about the injury, Reyes replied,

It is getting better every day. I did a lot of work on Sunday. I just have to make sure its healed before I play again.

Both Beltran and Jose Reyes flew from San Francisco to Arizona on a private plane with the Giants All Star selections. Reyes laughed when asked if the Giants did any recruiting of him or Beltran. No news there, they just talked about coming to the game.
