Mets Exercise Jose Reyes’ 2011 Option

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.

β€œA long-term deal is not out of the question,” Alderson said. β€œIt 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.
