Reyes and Delgado Work Out [David Stefanini]

The news that Jose Reyes and Carlos Delgado were working out today is great news for the New York Mets. Who do the Mets need back more, who knows, but they definitely could use one of them.

Delgado took batting practice for the first time since May 19th and Jose Reyes was doing agility drills. They showed clips of Reyes doing drills and working on his explosiveness which was so great to see. He wasn't limping and he looked like he was getting close to where everyone wants him to be. The question now becomes when.

No one seems to have an answer to that question and it seems as if no one wants to even take a guess at it. All I have read or heard is there is no timetable for the return of anyone. Carlos Beltran seems to have fallen off the face of the planet. I have heard nothing about him. Delgado says he is taking it week by week, which means we are probably a month away from seeing him. Reyes is saying nothing about when he can come back.

At this point it is good to just hear about these stars doing something. Even if they are still weeks away from returning it gives us Met fans hope. However, when they come back will the Phils be to far away? Reyes will bring the energy and hopefully Delgado will bring the power. How about Beltran who is a combination of power and speed? Will he be back soon? These are all questions above my pay grade (which remains at $0) and I hope the Mets executives have the answers.
