Tests Confirm Jose Reyes Has Overactive Thyroid

NEW YORK — Mets shortstop Jose Reyes has an overactive thyroid and is expected to remain in New York while the results of additional blood tests are used to determine his treatment.

Doctors cleared Reyes to play last Friday after he took a blood test to follow one conducted during his physical. But team doctors in New York wanted to take a closer look at the speedster and pulled him out of pregame stretching.

Reyes said he felt fine and has not experienced any dizziness, fatigue or any other symptoms of a thyroid problem.

The Mets said Tuesday that tests confirmed he had an overactive thyroid. The additional test results aren't expected back before Thursday.

Reyes missed most of last season with an injured right leg.
