Mets SS Jose Reyes ready for rehab game

Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is going to make a rehabilitation start for Class-A Brooklyn on Monday before he is activated from the disabled list, possibly a day later.

Reyes tested his strained left hamstring by running the bases Sunday before New York lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5. Manager Terry Collins announced the decision after the game.

With general manager Sandy Alderson and Reyes' agent, Peter Greenberg, looking on, the All-Star ran from home to first, first to third, second to home and home to second.

Leading the majors with a .354 batting average, Reyes has been out since July 3 and is eligible to come off the disabled list Monday, but the Mets want him to test his leg in a game. Collins apparently wanted Reyes to skip the rehab game but was overruled.
