Mets Morning, Pregame News: Reyes Update, Izzy Collapse, Citi FieldDimensions Change

Jose Reyes ran the bases today at Citi Field, and reported no problems. He is going to run with more intensity tomorrow. Terry Collins said he should be in rehab games, at a higher level, later this week.
Reyes stated: Hamstrings are tricky, as one day it can feel good, but next can blow out. However, after three weeks rest last time he was ready to play.
In last night’s game, Jason Isringhausen faced four batters, all of whom came around to score, without recording an out. In his post-game news conference he summed up his performance:
“No excuse, warmed up in the bullpen fine, and I just lost it, couldn’t find the strike zone. It’s on me. When our team comes back like that and I go out and do that, it’s just a debacle. It’s one of the worst outings of my career.”
Although nothing is official, changes are expected regarding the dimensions at Citi Field in the offseason.
Among the changes, expect to see the left-field wall, which is nearly 16 feet tall, to be lowered. General manager Sandy Alderson, while not definitively stating changes would be made, said earlier this week there are nips and tucks that can be made to the 2.5 acre field that would not require any major structural changes to the ballpark.
