PLAYERS: Jose Reyes
TEAMS: Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes has begun running and taking batting practice in preparation for a possible rehab assignment within a week. The Toronto Sun's Mike Rutsey reports that Reyes is recovering well from a sprained ankle that put him on the 60-day disabled list. Reyes last played on April 12  and was hitting .395 in 10 games. Reyes began running on May 24 and taking batting practice a few days later. He has shown steady progress with each workout. The Blue Jays expect Reyes back in their lineup in late June, but if he continues to progress this well, he could begin his rehab assignment this coming week or soon after. This could allow Reyes to play with the big club before the end of the month. Reyes could not put much pressure on his ankle for more than two months since the sprain. He felt uneasy at first until he realized that he could exert pressure on it without pain. Said Reyes, "It was a little bit scary for me but pain free.... I'm going to continue to work the hardest I can to be on the field as soon as possible." The Blue Jays have had a very disappointing season so far. After acquiring Reyes and other big-name players this past offseason, the Blue Jays find themselves in last place in the A.L. East at 23-33, 10.5 games behind as play began on June 2. They are eighth in the league in runs scored, but the problem has come on the mound. The pitching staff has the second-highest ERA at 4.73.   Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

MLB will wear these ugly caps on the 4th of July

Major League Baseball does their best to ugly themselves up on national holidays. Teams just finished up wearing these desert camo abortions a few weeks ago on Memorial Day, and now attention turns to what they will all wear on the 4th of July next month. If you didn’t think MLB could do worse, you couldn’t be more wrong. You can catch a sneak peek of all the hats on New Era’s...

Toronto Blue Jays vs San Francisco Giants Preview

The Toronto Blue Jays and San Francisco Giants will square off in their second two-game set of the season Tuesday night. Despite their near opposite records, the Blue Jays hold the season lead over the Giants 2-0, after they swept the World Series champions at Rogers Centre back in the middle of May.

Toronto Blue Jays Continue Losing Ways Against Padres

The Toronto Blue Jays fell to a new low Saturday night when they dropped the second game of their three-game set with the San Diego Padres. In the last three weeks they had started to improve their play and actually win games on a regular basis, but the Blue Jays will finish this week with at least four losses and drop back to ten games under .500 with a 23-33 record. The team now...

Ryan Howard, Ricky Romero, and BAD Contracts.

Picture by Richard Wilkins Jr. I hate getting in on the Ryan Howard contract-bashing of many other fans, because, well, it's stupid. Lots of it began almost instantly in 2010, and frankly has kind of proven right by luck. The argument, as I remember it at the time was that...

The Pad-Jays: A Look at Those Who Have Worn Each Uniform

As the Toronto Blue Jays and San Diego Padres prepare to wrap-up their 3 game series tonight, I thought it would be fun to springboard off of Son of a Duck’s post on Friday morning and examine the players who have spent time in both a Padres and Blue Jays uniform. There are some obvious names (and we’ll get to those) that will come to mind – names seared into our collective...
