He’s got that old thing back

Senor Reyes will be ready for spring training

Making his first public appearance since right hamstring tendon surgery in mid-October, Mets’ All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes walked without a limp and expressed total confidence he will be 100 percent by the start of spring training.

Reyes, who is working out at a treatment facility on Long Island as well as his home in the Dominican Republic, is mainly doing sprints right now and not angled, baseball-type running.

“There’s no pain,” Reyes said. “My legs feel a little weak. We’re working on that, to get my power back, but that’s normal. The recovery is coming very good. Right now, we’re working on my [running] mechanics because my mechanics are a little bit off right now because after surgery,” Reyes said. “I don’t have power in my legs.”

Reyes, who plans to report early to spring training, all but guaranteed he can return to the All-Star form that saw him average 158 games from 2005-2008.
