Sandy Alderson on José Reyes, who he says will be in the minors '7-10 days': "I did meet with José personally. We talked for about an hour; the domestic abuse issue was the focal point of the conversation. I came away feeling he had taken responsibility for the mistake on his part and he was remorseful. He has paid a penalty for this. He is committed to ongoing counseling and support of organizations working against domestic abuse. And in addition to this personal meeting we had a lot of internal conversations. Jeff Wilpon was involved every step of the way. We are acutely aware of the issue that exists. José was a member of the Mets organization for 12 years and was a solid citizen the entire time, and we feel he deserved a second chance, and he deserved that second chance from us, where he spent his formative years."
