Jose Reyes SS TOR 10 hours ago

Reyes (ribs) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

Reyes has been able to play the last five games for the Blue Jays, but continues to experience pain while hitting from the left side of the plate, which will result in his benching Sunday with righty Chris Archer on the mound for the Rays. Though the shortstop noted his condition isn't worsening, he expected to be fully recovered from the injury at this point. He'll undergo a follow-up MRI later next week just as a precaution, but it seems conceivable that he'll be able to draw back into the lineup as soon as Monday in Boston.

Reyes (ribs) went 0-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in the Jays' win over Baltimore on Tuesday.

He played all nine innings, which is certainly a good sign, but Reyes was limited to hitting from the right side Tuesday. Although he's still not 100 percent, it appears as though he'll try to tough it out for the time being.

The normally switch-hitting Reyes will take at-bats only from the right side in his return to action Tuesday, Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports.

Reyes is feeling good enough to play Tuesday, but he is apparently still not 100 percent. Reyes is 11-for-30 (.367) against Orioles starter Bud Norris in his career, but he will be forced to face him as a right-handed hitter for the first time Tuesday.

Reyes (ribs) is hopeful to be available for Tuesday's series opener against the Orioles, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

Reyes will likely be reevaluated Monday after missing the weekend slate of games, and a final call on a potential DL stint will probably be made at that point. If he's able to avoid the disabled list, Reyes will only bat from the right side in an attempt to curb any further discomfort. If this plan doesn't come to fruition, look for Steve Tolleson and Ryan Goins to see a short-term bump in playing time while Reyes is on the shelf.

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.
