Reyes Isn't Letting Rumors Get To Him

May 30, 2011 11:37 AM EST

Mets shortstop Jose Reyes has been on a fire as of late, a stretch he believes has come because of his ability to push rumors out of his mind.

"I know there's a lot of rumors out there that the team is going to trade me and stuff like that," Reyes said. "If I put that stuff in my mind, I'm not going to perform the way that I want to on the field. So that's why I put it on the side."

Reyes is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2011 season and there have been rumors that the Mets could consider trading him before the July 31 deadline.
