NY Post, Jose Reyes will be in Philadelphia with the Mets tomorrow, but he doesn't know when he's going to return to the field -- or where it will be.
The shortstop said yesterday that he might need some rehab games before coming back from his most recent left hamstring strain.
"We haven't discussed that yet, but I think I'm gonna play rehab games," Reyes said before the Mets' 11-9 loss to the Brewers yesterday at Citi Field.
He has been out since leaving a game on Aug. 7 with a stiff hamstring -- the second time in a month he suffered a similar injury.

Alderson said Santana didn't feel as strong as he would like after making his first rehab start last Thursday as he recovers from surgery to repair the anterior capsule in his left shoulder.
Alderson said it was simply a "tweak in the schedule, not a setback." He said the organization wanted to be cautious.
Santana's velocity hovered between 88 and 90 in three scoreless innings last Thursday.

He allowed two hits, no walks, recorded three strikeouts and hit one batter. Santana threw 33 pitches, 26 for strikes.
Reports are saying he threw his fastball at 88-90 mph. The left-hander is attempting to return this season after September shoulder surgery.

That start will come Thursday for Single-A St. Lucie against Daytona Beach.
The Mets are hopeful it will lead to a return by their ace lefty at some point this season. Santana threw a bullpen session on Sunday in Miami, convincing team brass he was ready for this next step.

The team expects to make a decision on Tuesday regarding Santana, who threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Sunday afternoon and could begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday.
"They probably talked down there," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Santana and his rehabilitation staff in Florida. "They haven't called me yet."
Once Santana does begin a rehab assignment, be it Wednesday or next week, he will have 30 days to work into game shape before the Mets must activate him. At worst, then, Santana is looking at an early-September return.
Undergoing surgery last September to repair a torn capsule in his left shoulder, Santana still has two guaranteed seasons remaining on the six-year, $137.5 million contract he signed in 2008. The Mets also hold a $25 million team option for the 2014 season, with a $5.5 million buyout.
When healthy, Santana has been quite successful for the Mets, posting a 40-25 record and a 2.85 ERA in 88 starts over the past three seasons.
