Reyes (ribs) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes was scratched from Sunday's lineup for precautionary reasons due to soreness in his ribs, but he will return to action Tuesday as expected. He will man the shortstop position and hit second against Padres starter Jhoulys Chacin.

Reyes (ribs) was scratched Sunday purely as a precaution and is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday, Justin Tasch of The New York Daily News reports. "[Reyes] wanted to play, believe me, he wanted to play," Mets manager Terry Collins said after the game. "Said 'I think I'll be OK.' I said, 'You haven't been paying attention to what's going on here. Every time we play somebody with a tweak, we end up losing them for three weeks. So you're not playing today."

EDGE Analysis

Collins' caution is understandable given the list of names the Mets currently have on the DL. Reyes has been heating up again lately, posting a .333/.385/.417 slash line over his last six games, and should be back at shortstop when the team begins a three-game set Tuesday at home against the Padres.

Reyes was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels due to tightness in his left rib cage, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets haven't commented on the severity of Reyes' injury, but manager Terry Collins may have just wanted to give the veteran an elongated rest with the team off the schedule Monday. Reyes downplayed the issue himself and should be viewed as day-to-day heading into Tuesday's series opener with the Padres. Matt Reynolds will replace Reyes in the lineup at shortstop Sunday.

Reyes went 3-for-4 with three RBI during Saturday's win over Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

After a dreadful start to the season, Reyes entered Saturday with nine extra-base hits, 13 RBI, 15 runs, two stolen bases and a .264/.325/.486 slash line through his previous 20 games. While those numbers don't jump off the page, the veteran is providing serviceable cross-category production. Reyes has also hit his way back to the top of the lineup, which helps his fantasy floor.

Reyes went 3-for-6 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run in Wednesday's 11-inning loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes had collected three hits exactly zero times in his first 38 games of the year, so this was a huge day for a guy who came in hitting .180 (now .194). If anyone in the majors is due some luck, it's Reyes, with his insanely low .207 BABIP. That's not to say that positive regression will turn him back into the Reyes of old, but he's better than his current statistics. Once his luck balances out, Reyes' decent pop and remaining speed will play nicely in many fantasy formats.

Reyes got the start at shorstop and hit leadoff Sunday, going 2-for-5 with a run scored in an 11-9 loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Mets manager Terry Collins is searching for any lineup combination that works right now, and a nine-run outburst could buy the 33-year-old a few more days in the leadoff spot. He's just 3-for-21 (1.43) over the last seven games, however, so while he should see more playing time with Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) potentially headed for the DL, Reyes will need to produce if he wants to avoid being exiled to the bottom half of the order again.

Reyes was out of the starting lineup for the second straight game Saturday, but came on as part of a double-switch in the sixth inning and played center field for the first time in his big-league career.

EDGE Analysis

His stay in the outfield lasted all of one inning as he shifted to shortstop in the seventh, but with T.J. Rivera swinging a hot bat and getting a chance at third base, a super-utility role may be Reyes' best chance of seeing regular playing time for now. He showed some life at the plate at the end of April but is slumping once again, slashing just .194/.268/.333 in May.

Reyes could receive playing time in the outfield, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets have been making an effort to keep T.J. Rivera in the lineup, as his bat has been a solid asset to the injury-ridden club. As a result, Reyes has sat out the last two games, and could be at risk of seeing less consistent playing time moving forward. Reyes is hitting just .182/.265/.314 for the year, but may be in line to receive an occasional start in the outfield if the need arrises.

Reyes is not in the lineup Friday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes has been a staple in the Mets' lineup due to the multitude of injuries plaguing the club, but with Lucas Duda returning to the lineup, the Mets opted to send Reyes to the bench in order to keep T.J. Rivera's hot bat in the lineup. Rivera will slide over to the hot corner for the evening to replace Reyes.
