One All Star leaves as another returns. Such is the life of a Mets fan. Jose Reyes departed in the seventh inning after fielding a grounder on the outfield grass and throwing to first base retiring Troy Glaus.
After the game it was confirmed that Reyes would miss the All-Star Game. Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com reported that replacing Reyes would be Rafael Furcal on the NL All-Star roster.
It was reported that Mets officials have insisted Reyes could do no additional harm by playing through the injury. After today’s events that may be put in question.
Below you can listen to Jerry Manuel and Jose Reyes speak about the injury.
