After months of delaying the inevitable, the Mets finally announced Jose Reyes will have surgery to clean out scar tissue around the accessory hamstring tendon behind the right knee. However, Reyes will not require surgery for the separate hamstring muscle tear.
No date has been set, but the surgery will be performed by Dallas Cowboys team doctor Dr. Daniel E. Cooper.
Cooper is one of the leading expert in the country on hamstring injuries.
Of course, the Mets said Reyes would be ready for spring training.
They always say that, but what if he isn’t? The Mets have to be thinking of a replacement in case he his not.
