Jose Reyes Set To Be Acknowledged By The Mets

Tuesday April 17th, 2012

Miami Marlins shortstop Jose Reyes will be recognized through a video tribute by his former club, the New York Mets, before his return to Citi Field April 24, reports the New York Daily News.

Reyes left the Mets as a free-agent this offseason to sign a six-year, $106 million contract with Miami.

Last season Reyes became the first New York Met to ever win a batting title. During his nine seasons with the Mets he was a four-time All-Star, and hit .292/.341/.441 with 81 home runs and 379 stolen bases. Reyes currently is hitting .238/.289/.357 with two steals in his first season in Miami. The Marlins are 4-6 so far this year.
