Reyes dealing with sore right hand
New York — Jose Reyes is riding a 25-game hitting streak. But the Marlins shortstop also is dealing with some discomfort in his right hand.
Reyes jammed his hand again on Tuesday night, facing New York left-hander Jon Niese.
Still, Reyes reached on an infield single, extending his streak to 25 games, the longest in the Majors this year.
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is monitoring Reyes, and hinted that he could sit out a game in New York.
Reyes initially tweaked the hand last Friday in the doubleheader at Washington while facing Gio Gonzalez.
He said it bothers him while hitting from the right side.
“From the right side, if I get jammed, it’s going to hurt,” said Reyes, his hand wrapped in ice after Miami’s 4-2 win on Tuesday. “From the left side, it’s alright. It’s no big deal.”
