Reyes should be back Monday for Doubleheader against Marlins

According to the Sporting News, New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is expected to come off the disabled list Monday..

Reyes, sidelined since Aug. 8 by a left hamstring strain, will finish a minor league rehab assignment Saturday and then rest Sunday. The Mets are expected to activate him prior to one of the games of Monday's doubleheader against the Florida Marlins.

The Daily News notes that Reyes, leading the NL with a .336 batting average, could become the first player in franchise history to win a batting title. In 98 games this season, Reyes also has five homers, 37 RBIs, 34 steals, 16 triples, 26 doubles and 80 runs.

This is his second stint on the disabled list this season because of a left hamstring injury.

Reyes will be a free agent after the 2011 season, and there has been speculation that his injury history could affect the length and value of his next contract.
