Jose Reyes is back with the Mets after spending three days on bereavement leave following his grandmother’s death.

He’ll be in the lineup for this afternoon’s game against the Pirates, with the Mets placing Taylor Buchholz on the disabled list to make room on the roster.

Even after missing three games Reyes leads the league in hits and triples in addition to ranking second in doubles and steals, third in batting average, and fifth in total bases.
