Jose Reyes checked in NY...

Jose Reyes pulled himself from a rehab game with discomfort in his injured calf, it was the first time Reyes attempted to push the calf and he didn't make it through the game.

He will return to NY to have the calf re-examined, and while Mets officials were reluctant to speculate on the injury, it certainly has to be considered a set back.

He certainly won't be coming off the DL when he's eligible on Friday and his return has been put on hold indefinitely.

There seems to be a small tug-of-war going on between Reyes and Manuel, reading between the lines, it seems like Manuel wants Reyes to tough it out and play with pain. However, early in Reyes career the team ignored warning signs and had him continue to play through, what later was found to be injures, so it's understandable if he's precocious.

"We'll see where we go from here," Ricco said. "When he finally got in a game and tried to go full bore, he said there's still something there. So the doctors are going to take another look at it." source NY Post
