MLB: Mets shortstop Reyes told to rest until thyroid normalizes
NEW YORK — Mets shortstop Jose Reyes has been told to rest and refrain from athletic activity until his thyroid levels normalize.
Reyes was taken out of the lineup March 4 for additional medical tests, and the team said Tuesday that he has an overactive thyroid.
New York said Thursday that Reyes has been told to change his diet and will be able to resume playing baseball when his thyroid levels are normal. His agent, Peter Greenberg, said Reyes will be sidelined for 2-to-8 weeks.
He missed most of last season with an unrelated leg injury.
