Mets @ Braves: Reyes Likely To Sit Out

New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is likely to miss the team's series with the Atlanta Braves that begins tonight. His injured oblique still will not allow him to take batting practice.

"It's still sore. I don't want to do too much," said Reyes, who tried hitting from both sides of the plate. "Righthanded is better. But it's still a little sore, too. So we'll back off a little bit."

No reason for Reyes to rush. The Mets aren't going anywhere.
