If they'll have him, Jose Reyes would love to return to the Mets for the 2019 season.
"Of course I'd want to come back," Reyes told Howie Kussoy of the New York Post. "My body feels good. I feel healthy. We'll see if there's an opportunity."
Reyes added that he doesn't know what the future holds, but that he wants to "finish the season strong and see what happens."
After hitting .246/.315/.413 with 15 homers last season, the Mets re-signed Reyes with the idea that he would be valuable as a jack-of-all trades off the bench. And that belief was a fair one given how he performed in 2017. But Reyes is hitting .186/.257/.281 with three homers in 81 games this season.
To put the above into perspective, if Reyes had enough at-bats to qualify, his .281 slugging percentage would be the worst in the league (Billy Hamilton of the Reds is at .302). Reyes' .257 OBP would also be the worst in the league if he had enough at-bats to qualify.
And his play in the field hasn't been much better than his offense.
Reyes has been worth -4 DRS in just 140.2 innings at shortstop, and worth -2 DRS in just 153.2 innings at third base.
Former Mets GM Sandy Alderson said earlier this month that the team was prepared to release Reyes earlier this season, but that since the team was on the west coast, they decided not to. "He deserved more than that," Alderson told Kate Feldman of BP.
So Reyes is still with the Mets, but it seems that with the end of the 2018 season will come the end of his tenure in Flushing.
