Dr. McCoy is Jose Reyes Physician

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.

I'm a Doctor, Not a Miracle Worker

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……

  1. I was and remain speechless since I read this elsewhere, note the date, not a usual happening. Good Shabbat, Z!

  2. How’s that going for him, Will?

    Read earlier you had the “Beltran Flu”, hope you are feeling better!

  3. I hope the team is going to also explore conventional treatments. They can bring in Alan Alda for all I care, just don’t neglect proven rehab tactics.

  4. platelets. interesting. my dad is a frequent platelet donor because he is the universal type for it. i think he gets the red cells back. i never really knew what the platelets could be used for.
