NL King - Jose Reyes back to Mets Camp *UPDATE*

UPDATE: As of this past week, it looks like the Mets will put Jose Reyes on the DL retro to last week and he will start the 5th game of the season (Saturday 4/10) assuming no setbacks. The question now becomes..... do I put Reyes in my roster just to get Saturday and Sunday stats the first week in weekly leagues? We'd recommend sitting Reyes assuming you have a viable back up. Let's give him a day or two to get back into fantasy game shape and if all goes well, feel free to start him for Week 2.

Jose Reyes came back to Mets camp and word is there is a 50-50 chance he will be on the opening day roster. As long as Reyes does not have a setback (we are talking about the Mets) it seems to me that the worst case scenario would have Reyes back no later than the 1st or 2nd week of April.

We will have to see if the Mets will have Reyes start the season as the #3 hitter. Again buyer beware come draft day as the Mets want Reyes to run a lot less this year especially at the beginning of the season. I would be ultra conservative and assume 30 to 35 steals this year for Reyes in terms of figuring out his draft day auction price or what round to take Reyes in a traditional draft.
