Mets sign shortstop Jose Reyes to minor league contract

ATLANTA (AP) The New York Mets signed shortstop Jose Reyes to a minor league contract on Saturday, creating a reunion with the team's former star who now must overcome a suspension for domestic violence as he attempts to revive his career.

In a move general manager Sandy Alderson said was unrelated, slumping outfielder Michael Conforto was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas and outfielder Brandon Nimmo was called up to be with the team for Saturday night's game at Atlanta.

The 33-year-old Reyes played primarily at shortstop for the Mets from 2003-11 but may be used in a utility role in his return. Alderson said Reyes will play this base in his first minor league game with the Class A Brooklyn Cyclones on Sunday.
