Via Andrew Marchand of ESPN1050 RADIO, Jose Reyes will undergo new, alternative treatment for his torn hamstring tendon called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy). PRP is a new therapy in which blood is drawn from a patient and then put into a centrifuge, where they spin it to take just platelets out. Then doctors inject the patient where the injury occurred.
Previous guinea pigs, i mean, recipients of the procedure include Hines Ward & Troy Polomalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
When asked when Jose will recover, McCoy responded, “I’m a doctor, not a magician.”
After calming down the doctor, his agent said vaguely,”They don’t think it is going to be months,” Greenberg said. “They don’t think it is going to be days. I think by the end of the next two weeks they will have a better idea.”
So Jose Reyes will be going on a Trek, which no baseball player has gone before……
