Further test results to determine the extent of Jose Reyes’s hyperthyroidism confirm that his levels are still too high for physical activity, according to a release by the Mets.
Doctors have told him to rest and make changes to his diet. These steps, along with medication, should allow his thyroid levels to return to a normal level. At that time, Reyes will be able to resume baseball activities. When this might happen is uncertain.
With any luck, they’ll be able to stabilize Reyes before the start of the regular season. However, even if he does return to normal soon, he’ll still have to get back into shape to be able to play every day.
It’s another setback for someone who just wants to play baseball again. It’s got to be really frustrating, especially when it’s completely out of your control. You have to feel bad for the guy. Get well soon, Jose.
