Jerry Manuel recently spoke about the statuses of Jose Reyes, and J.J. Putz.
“It was tightness in the calf”, Manuel said about Reyes. “We’ll give him another day and see if that can loosen it up and hopefully that’s part of the progression for that injury to get better. Hopefully he’ll be ready in the next day or so.”
According to Manuel, Putz is also ready to go today, and they would like for him to be the closer should that situation arise.
Oliver Perez also pitched 3 innings in extended spring training today. He allowed no hits, struck out seven, and walked four on 56 pitches.
