The Mets exercised Jose Reyes' 2011 option and will pay the shortstop $11MM in salary instead of a $500K buyout. The 27-year-old has said he'd like to sign in New York long-term, and GM Sandy Alderson told Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com that he's open to working out an extension.
“A long-term deal is not out of the question,” Alderson said. “It is something we can certainly discuss at a future date.”
Reyes hit .282/.321/.428 with 30 steals and 50 extra base hits in 2010.
