Reyes prefers no contract talk in-season

February, 16, 2011
Signs continue to point to Jose Reyes testing free agency next offseason. Sandy Alderson is on record saying he does not plan to discuss an extension in spring training. And Reyes reiterated Wednesday that he prefers the topic not come up in-season.

"I want to focus on playing baseball and do my job to help this team to win," Reyes said. "If that's the case, I prefer talking after the season, so when I'm going to be a free agent. But right now what is in my mind is playing baseball and focus and stay healthy on the field and try to help this team win a lot of ballgames."

Is Reyes curious about free agency?

"You know, this is my first time I'm going to be a free agent," he replied. "So I don't know what's going to happen, to be honest with you."
