Analysis: Reyes, 33, played primarily at shortstop for the Mets from 2003-11, but may be used in a utility role in his reunion with the team. Reyes was cut by Colorado after serving a 59-day suspension for violating Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy. He became a free agent on Saturday. The Rockies are responsible for the $39 million remaining on his contract, minus the prorated share of the $507,500 major league minimum to be paid by the Mets.

Reyes was assigned to Triple-A on June 1 and hit .333 in nine games before being designated for assignment.
