The scorching red hot Toronto Blue Jays could get even hotter in just a few days. NBC Sports.com's Bill Baer reports that the Blue Jays will activate shortstop Jose Reyes from the disabled list this coming Thursday, June 27, as the Blue Jays begin a four-game series with the division-leading Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park. Reyes has been on the disabled list since April 12 with a sprained left ankle. He began a rehab assignment with Class-A Dunedin on June 17 and moved to Triple-A Buffalo on June 21. He went 10 for 25 with two stolen bases in six total games. Most importantly, he had no problems with his ankle. Reyes will now move to Double-A New Hampshire on Monday and meet up with the Blue Jays in Boston on Thursday. Buffalo News' Mike Harrington confirmed the news Sunday afternoon. #BlueJays GM AA tells MLB Radio Reyes will play for #Bisons again Monday, then join AA New Hampshire. Will get back to MLB Thursday at BOS — Mike Harrington (@BNHarrington) June 23, 2013 Reyes played in only 10 games for the Blue Jays as the season started, but he was 15 for 38 (.395) in that span. Without him, the Blue Jays had a terrible April and May, but they started playing much better in June even before their current 11-game winning streak. That streak has helped them climb from 8.5 games behind Boston on June 1 to 5.0 games out at the close of play on June 23, making the A.L. East a five-team race. Now, the Blue Jays will have their shortstop back. He is a very high on-base man with blazing speed. Reyes has a career OBA of .343 and 415 stolen bases since 2003. He hit .287 and was on base at .347 last season for the Miami Marlins. He also hit 11 home runs and stole 40 bases. Reyes could provide the spark that will help the Blue Jays continue their current winning ways. Follow Raymond on Twitter @RayBureau. Like Raymond’s “Baseball Bureau” page on Facebook.
