From Metsblog.com:
Jose Reyes will join the Mets and be activated on Tuesday, the team announced Monday.
Travis d'Arnaud agreed to give up his number so Reyes can wear No. 7, according to ESPN.
Terry Collins has said Reyes, 33, will likely bat leadoff when he joins the team, while getting most of his time in the field at third base.

"He's going to bring us a ton of energy," David Wright told reporters this past weekend, when asked about Reyes potentially rejoining the Mets. "I think that's something we can really use is his dynamic on the field -- his speed, his charisma, his ability."

All true, you can always use more energy.  He will also offer a veteran voice in the clubhouse in the second half of the season. I'm curious to see the type of reaction he gets tonight at Citi Field at his first at bat.  I know a lot of people do not like the move, bringing him back, but it really is a no-brainer for the Mets.  Reyes cost them nothing except money, and we get to see if he has anything left.  If the experiment fails you let him go. Simple. As far as the reaction goes, I wouldn't be surprised at anything that occurs, though I would expect a standing ovation, with a spattering of boos.  We shall see.
