Reyes went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes plated a run in the second inning with an RBI groundout to tie the game at 1-1. The 35-year-old has continued to struggle in the month of July, batting .176 with two extra-base hits and two RBI over 12 games. Despite this, Reyes figures to keep drawing starts at the hot corner with Todd Frazier (ribs) on the disabled list for the time being.

Reyes will start at third base and bat seventh Sunday against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since Todd Frazier (ribs) hit the 10-day disabled list July 9, Reyes has stepped in as the Mets' primary third baseman, as he'll draw his sixth start at the position in eight games. The consistent playing time has done little to break Reyes out of his season-long funk, with the veteran infielder slashing a woeful .133/.212/.167 in 12 appearances in July. The Mets remain loyal to the longtime franchise mainstay, but he has shown little evidence that he's worthy of a spot on an MLB roster at this point.

Reyes is starting at shortstop Tuesday for the third day in a row, according to Tim Healey of Newsday.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes has not officially supplanted Amed Rosario as the Mets' starting shortstop, but including Tuesday's contest, both have evenly split the starts at the position over the last 10 games, so the duo is at least splitting the time for the moment. Reyes will hit eighth Tuesday against Pirates starter Chad Kuhl.

Reyes is not considering retirement even though his roster spot with the Mets is unsafe, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. "My body feels good," Reyes said. "I am not thinking about (retiring) at all. I feel like I can still play. Obviously, I am frustrated because when I do get chances I am not getting the job done.

EDGE Analysis

Per Ackert on Tuesday, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson didn't deny reports that New York would prefer Reyes retire instead of having to release him. Considering the infielder's extensive history with the club, the Mets would rather give him a celebratory sendoff to end his career than make him a roster casualty who'll then look for work elsewhere. Even if Reyes is released upon the return of Wilmer Flores from the disabled list or sometime after that, the 35-year-old might aim to land with another organization in a reserve role.

Reyes got the start at third base and hit sixth Tuesday, going 1-for-2 with a walk but also committing two throwing errors.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old is really struggling at the plate this season, slashing .145/.203/.200 in 32 games, and Reyes may have taken his frustrations into the field Tuesday. Todd Frazier (hamstring) has begun taking batting practice but lacks a clear timetable for his return, but Reyes doesn't seem likely to see much playing time in his place given his current form with the bat and the glove.

Reyes was passed over at third base by rookie Luis Guillorme during the last two games with the veteran hitting .091 (2-for-22) in May.

EDGE Analysis

Even with Todd Frazier (hamstring) on the shelf, Reyes' ice-cold bat is keeping him out of the lineup. He's appeared in 31 games this season and only collected hits in four of them, leading to a brutal .132/.179/.189 slash line on the year. Until the 34-year-old finds his way out of this slump, there's little reason to have him on a fantasy roster, even in the deepest of leagues.

Reyes will start at shortstop and bat eighth in Thursday's game against the Nationals, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Amed Rosario isn't dealing with any reported injury, so Reyes' entry into the lineup for the second time in three games is likely a result of manager Mickey Callaway wanting to keep the veteran sharp as the 34-year-old prepares for a lower-usage utility role in 2018. With 15 home runs and 24 stolen bases in 561 plate appearances last season, Reyes showed that he can still be a fantasy asset when handed regular playing time, but he benefited greatly from injuries hitting the Mets infield hard in 2017. Unless the likes of Rosario, Asdrubal Cabrera and Todd Frazier miss extended time, Reyes probably won't start often enough to warrant a roster spot outside of very deep mixed leagues and NL-only settings.

Reyes went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI and two stolen bases in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Getting the start at second base and hitting sixth, Reyes showed a little flash of his old self when he stole second and third off Dellin Betances in the fourth inning. The 34-year-old will fill a utility role for the Mets this season and isn't likely to get the 561 plate appearances he did in 2017, but he can still make a fantasy contribution when he is in the lineup.

Reyes is expected to see some time in the outfield this spring, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes made two appearances in the outfield last season, so it's not completely unprecedented. At this point in his career, the 34-year-old will likely need to rely on positional eligibility to get in the lineup, so this could prove to be a decent move for him. This is especially pertinent while Michael Conforto (shoulder) is sidelined.

Reyes signed a one-year contract with the Mets on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes is set to return to New York for another season, though he's expected to fill a utility role in 2018 after starting 126 games around the Mets' infield in 2017. While the 34-year-old hit .246/.315/.413 with a respectable 15 homers and 24 stolen bases last season, his counting stats will likely regress in line with his playing time in 2018, leaving him off the fantasy radar in most formats.
