Reyes back in NY with leg pain

NEW YORK -- Shortstop Jose Reyes returned to New York on Monday night with continued discomfort in his right leg. Reyes, who has not played a game for the Mets since May 20, was scheduled to be examined by doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York on Tuesday.

Reyes had been making progress in his rehabilitation from a slight tear in his hamstring before last Friday, when he did not run the bases in Port St. Lucie, Fla., as scheduled. Mets manager Jerry Manuel called it a setback at the time.

There was no further incident that inspired Reyes to return to New York; it's just a response to the persistent discomfort in his leg. With fewer than 60 games remaining on the Mets' schedule, the possibility exists that Reyes could miss the remainder of the season.
