Reyes, who had his thyroid imbalance checked as frequently as once per week when it was first diagnosed back in March, has not undergone a test in more than four weeks. As long as the results of his next exam come back normal -- and Reyes has no reason to believe they will not -- he should be done with the testing for good.
And that much, for the shortstop, is a relief.
"Believe me, yeah," Reyes said. "When you do a test, sometimes you think maybe something's wrong. So you want to get that out of your mind."
Reyes missed the first week of this season with a thyroid imbalance that required a strict regimen of rest to correct. He entered Saturday's play batting just .211 with no home runs.
