PLAYERS: Jose Reyes
TEAMS: Toronto Blue Jays
When shortstop Jose Reyes initially suffered his ankle injury earlier this month, the Toronto Blue Jays estimated that he'd miss one to three months of action. While Reyes believes he'll be able to return in June, general manager Alex Anthopoulos told Shi Davidi of Sportsnet that he expects the earliest the shortstop will be back is early July.  “He will tell you yes. You know, we told him three months and he told me, ‘I’m going to be back in two.’ I said, ‘Look, if you can be back in two without taking any chances, great.’ But we’re not going to take any chances. Everyone in New York knows what a gamer he is and how much he wants to play. But I think the earliest may be the beginning of July, just to make sure that we do this correctly and we don’t have any setbacks." Reyes' absence hasn't helped the Blue Jays' cause early on in the season, as they've struggled mightily out of the gates. While there was initially speculation that Toronto could look outside the organization to fill the void left by Reyes' injury, AA said the plan is to make do with Munenori Kawasaki and Maicer Izturis at short. While Reyes has aspirations of returning from the disabled list sooner than later, Anthopoulos knows that this may not be realistic considering "he's starting spring training all over again.

Toronto Blue Jays Purchase Contract of Pitcher Justin Germano

The Toronto Blue Jays purchased the contract of right handed pitcher Justin Germano from Triple-A Las Vegas Saturday. He has been horrible in the minor leagues this year and has a career 5.27 ERA in the majors in over 322 innings pitched.

The Blue Jays Are In Trouble

Before the season season started, members of our staff took a shot at prognosticating the season, despite the fact that we all know You Can’t Predict Baseball.

What The Toronto Blue Jays Mean To Me

So this is where it all starts for me as a sports writer, covering the Toronto Blue Jays for Baseball Hot Corner. Ever since I visited Canada for the first time when I was seven, I have been fascinated with the history and culture that existed in Canada and the United States. As you can imagine for a small kid all the way from London, England it was pretty overwhelming. But what...

What was the real point of the Rasmus trade?

It’s been two years since the St. Louis Cardinals suddenly dealt former uber-prospect Colby Rasmus to the Toronto Blue Jays mid-season for a host of pieces in return. And in the two years since that deal, the value of what’s come of the trade is still very much undetermined. There are some that say the deal was what sealed the 2011 World Series win, while others feel it was a...

Note to potential Blue Jays waiver claim: You will soon be removed from roster

The Toronto Blue Jays have gained some attention as they have claimed several players off waivers since the season started. All teams use waivers as a measurement of the talent they have on the bottom part of their 40 man roster. If a player removed from another team can help a team, it is the reason players are claimed. All teams have interest in upgrading their rosters. The Jays...

Mark DeRosa called players-only meeting to address Blue Jays struggles

The Toronto Blue Jays entered the season looking like a legitimate threat to win the AL East, but they are off to a horrendous start. Coming off a four-game series in which they were swept by the New York Yankees, the Blue Jays are 9-17 and already 9.5 games behind the division-leading Boston Red Sox. They lost every game to New York by two runs or less, but winning close games is...

R.A. Dickey didn't like Yankees' 'Eye-Gate' stall tactic

R.A. Dickey had just been rocked by Lyle Overbay's two-run homer as the Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer got ready to throw one of his gimmicky pitches to the next batter. In the New York Yankees bullpen, David Robertson — who had just caught Overbay's dinger — was warming up to preserve the 3-2 Yankees lead. Out in front of the dugout was that next batter — Eduardo...

Series Preview: Boston Red Sox @ Toronto Blue Jays

Toronto fans released waves upon waves of boos on John Farrell when the Red Sox visited Toronto when the Red Sox visited in early April. Will the Boo Jays come back?
