Jose Reyes


Reyes signed a $23.25 million, four-year contract extension with the Mets on Thursday. The shortstop avoided salary arbitration after this season by signing the contract. "I think it's going to be great for me and my family," Reyes said. "I know that I'm going to be there for a long time."


Reyes will not play for the National League in Tuesday's All-Star game because of a deep cut on his left pinkie. The Mets' shortstop was injured in Friday's 7-3 loss to Florida when he made a headfirst slide into first base and appeared to get spiked. He required seven stitches to close the wound on his finger.


Reyes left the Mets' 7-3 loss to Florida on Friday night in the seventh inning after suffering a cut on his left pinky. He made a headfirst slide into first base and appeared to get spiked. X-rays were negative and he required seven stitches to close the wound on his finger.


Reyes was selected to his first All-Star team Sunday and will start at shortstop for the National League. He is hitting .291 with eight homers and 39 RBIs this season.


Reyes went 4-for-5, including a home run, in Sunday's 7-4 victory over Toronto to extend his hitting streak to 13 games. The Mets' shortstop is batting .561 (32-for-57) during that span and earned NL player of the week honors on Monday.


Reyes hit for the cycle Wednesday night against the Cincinnati Reds, becoming the ninth player in Mets history to accomplish the feat. The 23-year-old shortstop homered to lead off the game, doubled in the third, tripled into right-center in the fifth and grounded a single into center field in the eighth in New York's 6-5 loss.


After going 3-for-5 with a triple, home run and four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, Reyes now has hit safely in his last six games. Over that span, the Mets' shortstop is 13-for-27 (.481) with three home runs, eight RBI and three stolen bases.


Reyes had just one single in four at-bats in Sunday's win over the Chicago Cubs, but it was enough to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 20 games -- the longest current streak in the major leagues. Over that span, the Mets' shortstop is batting .374 with four doubles, two triples, nine RBI, 11 stolen bases and 19 runs scored.


Reyes extended his current hitting streak to eight games, going 2-for-4 with a triple and run scored in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Over that span, the Mets' 22-year-old infielder is batting .457 (16-for-35) with two doubles, two triples and six RBI. He's also been active on the basepaths during the stretch, recording eight steals.


Reyes fulfilled his expected duties as the Mets' leadoff hitter in Thursday's win over the Philadelphia Phillies, going 3-for-5 with three stolen bases and a run scored. The shortstop has notched three steals in a game twice already this season.


Reyes notched the first multi-homer game of his major league career, going deep twice in Tuesday's blowout victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. The Mets' infielder led off the game with a solo home run to left field before adding another solo shot -- this time to right -- in the fourth inning.

Reyes is not going to hit a lot of home runs, but he's off to a good start so far this season. In 14 games, he is batting .286 with three homers, six RBI and three stolen bases.
