Reyes (ribs) will not play this weekend, and the Jays plan to re-evaluate him early next week, John Lott of the National Post reports.

The Jays hope to make a decision on a DL stint by Tuesday, after finding out Friday that Reyes is dealing with a cracked rib. It doesn't sound too promising for the star shortstop, and with Toronto not playing on Monday, owners in weekly leagues may be left with a touch decision. If he does play through the injury, Reyes will be at risk for further aggravations, and he may thus take a more conservative approach on the basepaths. Should he land on the disabled list, the playing time at shortstop will likely be divided between Steve Tolleson and Ryan Goins. Reyes mentioned that his ribs hurt most when he bats left-handed.

Reyes is dealing with a small crack or fracture in his left rib area, and the Blue Jays should know by the end of Friday whether or not he'll require a stint on the 15-day disabled list, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.

At the very least, Reyes will miss a couple of games, and it won't be at all surprising if he requires a stint on the disabled list. Even if he doesn't, Reyes may end up playing with significant discomfort, which could lead to a more conservative approach on the basepaths. Should Toronto's star shortstop ultimately land on the DL, Steve Tolleson and Ryan Goins will pick up the at-bats.

Reyes is suffering from an oblique injury, but hopes to avoid the disabled list by taking a couple days of rest, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

Reyes can likely be ruled out for Friday and Saturday, if not the whole weekend series. However, a stint on the disabled list still seems like a possibility at this point. The club will likely provide an update on his status at some point after taking a couple days off.

Reyes was removed from Thursday's game against the Rays after the first inning due to soreness in his left rib area, Sportsnet's Mike Wilner reports.

Reyes seemingly suffered the injury while running to first base on a ground out in his only at-bat. He was replaced by Ryan Goins for the top of the second inning, but Steve Tolleson could also get some extra playing time at shortstop, if Reyes misses any games beyond Thursday. The Jays had already been planning to give Reyes his first off day of the season Saturday against the Braves.

Reyes will not be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

Reyes, who has started every game thus far, is in the lineup for Thursday's contest against the Rays, and he will presumably get another start Friday against the Braves. He enters Thursday as the owner of a .333/.359/.417 slash line, with three runs, five RBI and one stolen base. The big bats behind Reyes have started slow, but the runs will undoubtedly start to flow once Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista get going. As always, the only real concern for Reyes is staying on the field, as well as staying healthy enough to steal bases.

Reyes (achilles) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

Reyes briefly looked injured in Monday's opener, but stayed in the contest and finished all nine innings. It appears that the extra day off did the trick, as he's back atop the order Wednesday.

Reyes tweaked his left Achilles tendon in the third inning of Monday's game against the Yankees, but stayed in for all nine innings. He's expected to be in the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees, Ken Fidlin of the Toronto Sun reports.

Reyes was injured on Opening Day last season as well, an injury that cost him three weeks; however, this injury does not appear to be serious. Reyes is one of the top shortstops in the game, but his inability to stay healthy for a full season always makes him a risky play. Consider him good-to-go and worthy of starting in nearly all formats unless his status changes.

Reyes is having a torrid spring at the plate, hitting for a .333/.362/.600 slash line in 16 games with eight extra base hits.

Reyes has always been able to hit, having hit above .270 every season since 2005, but it's still nice to see the 31-year-old continue his impressive start. While Reyes isn't likely to steal 60 bases again like he did between 2005 and 2007, he is still a candidate to pick up 30 or more steals as long as he stays healthy. As one of the best hitting shortstops in the game today, Reyes has quite a bit of value, but needs to stay healthy to make good on his high draft slot.

Reyes focused on strengthening his legs this offseason to avoid the injury issues he dealt with throughout 2014, Sportsnet.ca reports.

A hamstring injury suffered late in spring training pushed Reyes to the disabled list in April, and while he returned in the middle of the month, the ailment bothered him all year. Additionally, a shoulder injury impacted Reyes defensively, and he revealed that a three-week stretch after the All-Star break following a cortisone shot was the only time last season that he felt close to healthy. Leading off for a loaded Toronto lineup again, Reyes could push his numbers back up slightly this season with improved health, but even his dinged-up performance last year (.287/.328/.398, 30-for-32 SB, nine HR, 51 RBI) carried plenty of value.

Reyes is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners, the National Post reports.

With the team well out of contention, Reyes will get the day off after starting every game since August 11. Ryan Goins will get the start at shortstop and bat ninth versus Seattle starter Taijuan Walker.
