Jose Reyes felt "comfortable" while running Friday and will push his strained left hamstring further on Saturday.

If the running on Saturday goes well, Reyes could then be cleared to begin a rehab assignment. The shortstop is eligible to be activated on April 16, and he remains hopeful of being activated that day. That said, don't be surprised if the Jays slow-play it a little bit after bringing back Reyes too soon the last time.

Jose Reyes (hamstring) is scheduled to begin running on a treadmill on Tuesday evening.

An MRI taken Tuesday on the left hamstring of Jose Reyes showed only mild inflammation.

That's great news for the Blue Jays, who had good reason to worry that Reyes might need another multi-month absence. He should be back in action around mid-to-late April, but there are no guarantees with the oft-injured shortstop. Reyes, 30, had to leave Monday's season-opener after just one at-bat and has already been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that Jose Reyes (hamstring) will be placed on the disabled list.

The Blue Jays won't know the extent of Reyes' hamstring injury until he undergoes an MRI Tuesday, but Stark's source says the club is already planning to place him on the DL. It's no surprise, of course, as Reyes has been nursing the injury for over a week and aggravated it in his first at-bat Monday. Maicer Izturis is expected to start at shortstop while Reyes is sidelined.

Jose Reyes (hamstring) will undergo an MRI Tuesday.

Reyes admitted that his left hamstring was bothering him during his final two exhibition games, but he thought he could play through it. It didn't work, as he had to be pulled from Monday's game against the Rays after just one at-bat. He seemed really down after the contest and a trip to the disabled list seems very likely. The Jays prefer to keep Ryan Goins at second base, so Maicer Izturis figures to start at shortstop while Reyes is out.

Jose Reyes left Monday's game against the Rays due to left hamstring tightness.

Reyes was pulled from the game after just one at-bat. This is the same hamstring that gave him trouble toward the end of spring training, so this isn't a promising development. Given his history, a trip to the disabled list might be the best course of action.

Jose Reyes left Monday's game against the Rays in the first inning for an undisclosed reason.

Reyes lined out in his first at-bat and didn't come out to play defense in the bottom of the first inning. He was bothered by a mild left hamstring strain last week, so perhaps it's still an issue. Ryan Goins replaced him at shortstop. The Blue Jays should pass along an update on Reyes soon, but it's obviously cause for early concern.
