Health: Reyes Running, but Still not Close

Jose Reyes did light running in the outfield yesterday for the second-straight day, but told reporters he is still unsure when he will return, and it is unlikely to be before the All-Star break.

“Right now, I’m just jogging,” he said.  “So this is the first step.”

Reyes has yet to test the leg at full speed, noting that his legs still feel ‘a little weak.’

the difficult part to this will be when and how to let reyes loose… it’s not like he’s a slugger, who can half-it down the line… he’s whole game is based on speed, and running 100 percent… so, it’s going to be tricky for the medical team to determine when he can bust it, and how to test it without risking further injury

Jerry Manuel later told reporters Reyes is making progress, but the team will continue to be cautious in his rehab.
