Jays Contacted Mets About Reyes, Others This Spring

In Spring Training, the Blue Jays contacted the Mets to find out their plans about several players, including Jose Reyes, according to David Waldstein of the New York Times. GM Alex Anthopoulos did not make any firm proposals in the discussions, but the Blue Jays are monitoring Reyes’ progress. Yunel Escobar is playing well and under team control through 2013, so the Blue Jays don't have a pressing need for a shortstop.

Giants GM Brian Sabean does not appear to have contacted the Mets about Reyes and other teams haven’t yet expressed substantial interest in the shortstop – hardly a surprise given that the trade deadline is over two months away. It’s equally unsurprising to hear that the Blue Jays are monitoring Reyes’ progress, since most mid and large market teams are presumably eyeing him to some degree.
