Reyes is expected to begin the season as the Mets' primary third baseman with David Wright (shoulder) not expected to return in time for Opening Day, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright is nursing a right shoulder impingement and isn't expected to resume throwing for the next several weeks, which will likely put him behind schedule in his training regimen and potentially result in a DL stint to start the season. As a result, Reyes, who saw extended action at the hot corner last season upon joining the Mets while Wright was recovering from a herniated disc, is poised to once again see some regular reps at the position, though Wilmer Flores could also enter the mix as well. Reyes continued to flash some power and speed when he saw everyday starts in the second half of last season, and that combined with Wright's durability concerns should keep him on the radar in deep-league and NL-only drafts.

Reyes will see some work in center field this spring as the Mets look to transition him into a super-utility role, The New York Post reports. "I talked to Juan [Lagares] a little bit," Reyes said Friday at Tradition Field. "He said, 'You know, you have to be ready to run there, center field, because there are a lot of gaps there.' I said, 'Well, I'm healthy, so I am looking for the challenge.' "

EDGE Analysis

With Curtis Granderson and Lagares still on the roster, Reyes isn't likely to see much regular season action in center field, but the Mets are exploring every possible avenue to get his bat into the lineup and into the leadoff spot. Given David Wright's ongoing back and neck issues, though, expect most of Reyes' playing time to come at third base in 2017, with occasional starts at shortstop and second base as well.

Reyes has been named to the Dominican Republic team for the WBC, The NY Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

He joins Mets teammates Jeurys Familia and Hansel Robles on the DR roster. Reyes could end up being the team's starting shortstop, as his main competition for the spot would seem to come from Jonathan Villar, but the Dominican squad also features a number of infielders who can handle multiple positions, so Reyes could get an early jump on the super-utility role he's expected to fill for the Mets in 2017.

Reyes will work out in the outfield during spring training, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Mets hoping that David Wright (neck) will be healthy at the onset of the 2017 campaign, general manager Sandy Alderson expressed that he hopes to expand the 33-year-old's defensive repertoire in order to make him a more versatile asset. Specifically, it seems that the Mets are interested in having him take some reps in center field now that Yoenis Cespedes is back in the fold for a corner outfield spot along with Michael Conforto, Curtis Granderson, and Jay Bruce (with the latter two potentially being traded away prior to the offseason's conclusion). Reyes has only played shortstop and third base during his career in the major leagues, so there is definitely the potential for some growing pains as he learns the in's and out's of patrolling the outfield.

The Mets will pick up their option on Reyes' contract for the 2017 season, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets will only have to pay Reyes the league minimum, and he posted a .769 OPS with the team in 2016, so the decision to bring him back was seemingly an easy one. Reyes played mainly third base in his latest go-around with the Mets, but if David Wright is able to return and fill that spot in 2017, Reyes will likely be used in a utility role, seeing action at a number of different infield positions, and possibly in the outfield as well.

Reyes may fill a super-utility role, similar to Ben Zobrist, with the Mets next season, the NY Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets hold a 2017 option on Reyes, which they are likely to exercise. Reyes mostly played third base this year with David Wright sidelined due to his injury. Next season, Reyes could see time at third, short, second and left field to maximize the number of games he is on the field and his usefulness to the Mets.

Reyes is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies, ESPN.com's Adam Rubin reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets were able to clinch a spot in the playoffs with a victory Saturday, so Reyes and a few other veterans will rest up during the regular season finale. Eric Campbell will cover third base in Reyes' stead.

Reyes went 1-for-4 with two walks, a double, two runs scored and four RBI in Sunday's 17-0 rout of the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a tough September for Reyes, who's slashing .221/.316/.407 on the month through 86 at-bats, but the Mets will likely need him to have a big finish to the regular season if they're going to hang on to a wild card spot.

Reyes went 2-for-5 with a homer, a walk, two RBI and three runs in Thursday's 11-inning victory over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

With the Mets trailing 6-4, it was Reyes who stepped up and hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth; two innings later, with the Mets again down by two runs, Reyes' single brought Asdrubal Cabrera to the plate with two on and a chance to win the game -- which he did, socking a walkoff homer. Reyes hasn't been his old electric self on the bases, as he uncharacteristically has almost as many homers (eight) as steals (nine), but he's still provided a jolt to the Mets' offense, scoring bunches of runs out of the leadoff spot.

Reyes is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reyes's absence from Sunday's lineup is said to be a routine day off, so he'll likely be back Monday against the Braves. With Reyes sitting, Kelly Johnson will start at third base and hit fifth.
