MLB Investigation Reveals Jose Reyes Injury Was Fabricated By The Mets

When Jose Reyes went on the DL with his most recent hamstring injury, many around the league speculated that the injury was in fact a fortunate turn for the Mets hopes of resigning their star shortstop.  Major League Baseball had a similar thought and launched a full investigation into the injury.  What they turned up was shocking.

Investigators from the MLB were stunned when they showed up at Citi Field for a surprise inspection and found the Reyes tied up and gagged in a dark room.  After Reyes was cut loose he explained what happened.

"I told them it was just a cramp.  They said to me that I have to go on the DL.  When I told them I was going to complain to the union they did this to me."
Apparently, knowing the only way the team could afford to keep Reyes was to brand him as damaged goods, the Mets were hoping to sit Reyes for as long as it took for his value to drop into their price range.  According to a team source, that price range is a 3 to 4 year deal at $45,000 a year with added bonuses if he stops making music videos. 

The league is deciding on how to punish the Wilpons for this deception but, according to a source in the commissioner's office, they are having trouble finding anything else to take away from them.  The source compared the situation to drawing blood from a stone.

As for Reyes, Mets fans should not expect to see him back anytime soon either.  As it turns out, after being freed by the MLB, Reyes strained his hamstring walking back to his car. He is expected to be out for at least 2 weeks.

But Reyes is remaining positive about the situation.

"I could have been worse.", said Reyes  "At least they didn't bring out the gimp."
