Reyes Gets Player Of The Month

Gregor Chisholm at, writes about Jose Reyes and the award he received for the month of April:

Shortstop Jose Reyes is the engine that makes the Mets offense run. Batting leadoff, it's the 23-year-old's responsibility to jumpstart one of the National League's most powerful offenses.

And that's exactly what Reyes did in the first month of the 2007 season. After finishing April with a .356 average and scoring 26 runs, Reyes was voted the Sharp Presents the National League Player of the Month. It's the first time Reyes has received the honor during his three-year career.Entering Wednesday's action, Reyes led the Major Leagues with 17 stolen bases and five triples. He's on pace to threaten the Mets single-season record for triples (21) set by Lance Johnson in 1996.
