Jose Reyes SS TOR 2 days ago

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, 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 went 3-for-5 with a double in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Reyes is out of the lineup Monday, SportsNet's Barry Davis reports.

Munenori Kawasaki will play shortstop, giving Reyes a rare day off. He's been relatively healthy this season, which is something of a rarity, but his average, OBP and SLG are down across the board from his rates from the past three seasons. Still, he's on pace to finish with 10-plus home runs and close to 30 steals with a solid average if he can stay healthy.

Reyes went 3-for-4 for the second night in a row Tuesday against the Orioles.

Unfortunately, Reyes' little 6-for-8 outburst hasn't produced a single run or RBI, and to make matters worse, the Jays have lost both games. It's always hurts when the heart of the order can't cash in their leadoff man when he does his job and gets on base, but at least owners are benefiting from an uptick in batting average. The veteran shortstop is now hitting .285 on the year to go with eight homers, 33 RBI, 63 runs and 20 stolen bases.

He added some insurance in the eighth with an RBI double to make it 7-1. The shortstop is now sporting a .276/.326/.420 slash line with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and 19 stolen bases.

Jose Reyes admitted Tuesday that he's been playing with a right shoulder injury for the past month.

The ailment has resulted in a bunch of throwing errors of late. "To be honest with you, I don't know," Reyes told Sportsnet on Tuesday when asked what triggered the problems. "It's been long enough. One day I feel good, the next day I feel sore, that's the way it is. Baseball, you're never going to be perfect, you're always going to have some soreness in your body. You need to find a way to control that." Reyes also said the shoulder bothers him on certain swings. He was batting just .227/.244/.273 over his previous 10 games before Tuesday's 4-for-5 outburst that included a home run.
