The New York Mets say Jose Reyes has an overactive thyroid, but the shortstop isn’t buying it.
The team said on Tuesday that Reyes is expected to remain in New York while the results of additional blood tests are used to determine his treatment after tests confirmed he has an overactive thyroid.
But Reyes told ESPNDeportes.com’s Enrique Rojas later Tuesday: “The specialists who took care of me in New York have told me that I’m fine and that there’s nothing wrong with my thyroid. The test [taken to follow one conducted during his physical] showed that I’m fine. We just have to wait for the results of the additional test. The [doctors] found inflammation in my throat and no medicine to treat the thyroid or any other condition has been prescribed.”"
What the heck is going on?
UPDATE: Jose Reyes quotes from ESPN Deportes in spanish then translated in english.
Reyes: “Los especialistas que me atendieron en Nueva York me dijeron que estaba bien y que no tengo problemas de la tiroide”

Reyes: They told me that I only had a inflamed throat and did not need medicines for the thyroid or something else.
Reyes: “La Ãºnica recomendaciÃ³n de los especialistas fue que no comiera mariscos por la cantidad de yodo que contienen y que debÃa chequearme cada tres semanas para ver como sigue todo”
Reyes: The only recommendation of the specialists was to not eat seafood because of the amount of iodine that they have and that I should check myself every 3 weeks to see how everything is going.
Reyes: “El primer examen mostrÃ³ que estoy bien, me dijeron, y los resultados del segundo no los tenemos”
