Player Notes
Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Jose Reyes will take over as the team's leadoff man when he arrives from the minors.

Advice: Curtis Granderson has been the primary leadoff man over the past two seasons, but he'll be moved to the middle of the order. Reyes is expected to see time at third base in the minors and potentially even the outfield in order to prepare him for a super utility role. The expectation is that he could be with the big club in 7-10 days. Asdrubal Cabrera is expected to remain the primary shortstop, but the Mets are hopeful that Reyes' speed will bring a new dimension to their lineup. By the way, David Wright still leads the Mets with three steals.

Mets signed INF Jose Reyes to a minor league contract.

Advice: Reyes became a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday and it didn't take him long to officially reunite with the Mets. The plan calls for him to report to Class A Brooklyn on Sunday, where he's expected to play multiple positions before eventually joining the Mets in a utility role. The 33-year-old owns a .709 OPS since the start of 2014 and is coming off a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife, but the Mets are willing to take a chance on him to add some athleticism to their roster. "As I have expressed in the past, I deeply regret the incident that occurred and remain remorseful and apologetic to my family," Reyes said in a statement. "I have completed the counseling required by MLB, have been in ongoing therapy, and will continue with counseling going forward. I appreciate the Mets organization for believing in me and providing the opportunity to come back home to New York."

Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the Mets are expected to officially sign Jose Reyes on Saturday afternoon.

Advice: Multiple reporters are saying the same, as a reunion is basically seen as a foregone conclusion at this point. Reyes won't officially become a free agent until 1 p.m. ET, but Mets manager Terry Collins was already talking Friday about how the team plans to use him. The Mets would only be responsible for paying the veteran infielder a prorated portion of the major league minimum. Reyes was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week after completing a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife.

Anthony DiComo of MLB.com hears from multiple major league sources that the Mets expect to sign Jose Reyes as soon as Saturday afternoon.

Advice: Reyes was placed on release waivers on Thursday after the Rockies failed to find a trade for him and he'll officially become a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday. The Mets were originally seen as an unlikely landing spot, but a reunion has quickly picked up steam over the past few days. The Mets would only be responsible for a prorated portion of the major league minimum, so they are willing to take a chance on him even though he isn't the player he once was and recently served a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. The expectation is that Reyes would be sent to the minors to get some at-bats while also working at third base. He would likely function in a super-utility role in his return to the Mets.

If the Mets sign Jose Reyes, Newsday's Marc Carig believes the team will immediately send him to the minor leagues to work at third base.

Advice: A Mets/Reyes union was floated out as a possibility earlier this week and now it looks like it might actually happen. Carig said he'd be "surprised at this point if Reyes ends up somewhere else." The Royals have also been linked to Reyes but the Mets have a more pressing need at third base, where David Wright (neck surgery) remains out indefinitely. Reyes has never played third base in a major league game but if he can make the transition, he'd be a big upgrade over light-hitting Wilmer Flores.

According to the Rockies' public relations department, the club has requested release waivers on Jose Reyes.

Advice: Reyes should officially become a free agent on Saturday. Colorado made an effort to trade the veteran shortstop, but no team had interest in taking on what's left of his contract (around $40 million) and he's also coming off a 51-game domestic violence suspension. That said, Reyes should have some suitors once he officially clears waivers. There's thought to be a level of interest from the Royals and Mets.

The New York Post's Ken Davidoff relays that "most industry executives surveyed believe Colorado will not find a willing trade partner for [Jose Reyes]."

Advice: The Rockies have until Saturday to trade him. If not, they will likely release him, for a multitude of reasons. Even setting aside the uncomfortable nature of the 51-game suspension Reyes just finished serving for a November domestic violence incident, he just turned 33 years old and is owed $38 million (or thereabouts) through the end of the 2017 season. Not to mention that his current replacement at shortstop, Trevor Story, is slashing .264/.324/.549 with 18 homers and 46 RBI over 273 at-bats. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported on Monday that the Mets are at least mulling a possible reunion. There might be interest from the Royals too.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears from major-league sources that the Mets are "debating internally" whether signing Jose Reyes would be worth the public-relations fallout.

Advice: Reyes was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week on the heels of serving a 51-game suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. The 33-year-old could be signed at the major league minimum assuming he becomes a free agent, but the question is whether it would be worth the distraction to bring him aboard when he's clearly not the player he once was. Still, the Mets haven't ruled out the possibility, at least not yet. Rosenthal speculates that he could be a fit at either second or third base. Reyes could become a free agent as soon as this weekend.
