The man has been MIA.
Way back on August 20th, the Mets signed pitcher Al Reyes. He went to the minors to work back into shape before coming up in September to supposedly help the beleaguered bullpen.
Well, he's up, and he's yet to pitch.
Reyes, who converted 26 saves for the '06 Rays, has yet to even make an appearance for the Mets since joining them roughly two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, the Mets normal bullpen staff continues to get overworked and fails to preform. The perfect combination.
Is this Jerry Manuel trying to limit the number of Reyes' on the field at once, or was he really just not worth the contract? Who knows, but he might as well get a shot. It's not like the other guys are blowing people away.
