33-year old switch-hitting SS Jose Reyes “rehab” assignment ends today, so the Colorado Rockies need to either call him up, trade him or designate him for assignment.  Reyes played in 9 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 10 for 33 (.303 avg, .910 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 2 homers, 2 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  He played in 47 games for the Rockies after coming over from the Blue Jays in the Troy Tulowitzki deal and he was 50 for 193 (.259 avg, .659 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 3 homers, 19 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Trevor Story has established himself as the Rockies’ starting SS while Jose Reyes was suspended.  It will be interesting to see what the Rockies decide to do with Reyes.

UPDATE:  The Colorado Rockies have designated Jose Reyes for assignment.

UPDATE II:  The Colorado Rockies have released Jose Reyes.
