We've reported that the Mets are discussing the timing of a Jose Reyes release. What does that mean exactly?
Here's the deal: Given what they see as Reyes stature with the organization and in the clubhouse, the Mets would love to work with Reyes' camp on a stage-managed exit -- perhaps in the form of a retirement news conference.
Reyes, however, might want to seek out opportunities with other clubs. With plenty of other roster questions in play, including Yoenis Cespedes' return from the DL and Michael Conforto's possible demotion to Triple-A, this has not been front-burner yet.
But Reyes' Mets career could end very soon. It will be up to him, and 29 other clubs, to decide if that means the end of his time as a ballplayer.
