The Mets acquired infielder Ricky Gutierrez from the Cleveland Indians yesterday to serve as an experienced backup in case the Jose Reyes/Kaz Matsui experiment goes awry. Not a bad idea considering both were hurt in spring training with Reyes still not back from a hamstring injury. I’m a little jaded about Reyes durability right now with this injury following an ankle injury that forced him to shut it down last year. I hope this string of injuries is just a coincidence and not a sign of things to come.
