The reunion lasted a mere two pitches, and was washed out by a Florida rainstorm. Jose Reyes, with close-cropped hair and a black jersey that said "Miami," faced the Mets for one at-bat and three innings in the field on Thursday, before a rain delay ended his first chance to oppose his former team.

Reyes' soft bouncer back to the mound against R.A. Dickey was hardly a marquee moment, but the shortstop knows that his return to Citi Field on April 24 will be more dramatic.

"This is nothing," Reyes said. "It's going to be a little crazy when I go back to New York. This is spring training. This is just another game."
