MLB Injury News:
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.

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.

The scorching hot Blue Jays having just come off of an 11 game winning streak will get even stronger on Wednesday, which will upset the entire MLB. Jose Reyes has been on the DL since April 12 with a sprained left ankle and has finally healed from the injury.

The red-hot Toronto Blue Jays will be getting yet another boost this week. Even if they don't continue their franchise-high winning streak, the team will at very least see their All-Star shortstop return to action. Jose Reyes is expected to rejoin the club on Thursday.

We've been closely following the rising star of Blue Jays infielder Munenori Kawasaki, who might be demoted to the minor leagues once Jose Reyes returns from the DL (though it's looking less and less likely that he gets the axe). After the Blue Jays beat the Orioles 13-5 on Sunday to win their 11th straight game, Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista filmed Kawasaki doing a...
The Toronto Blue Jays extended their unbeaten streak to 10 games in dramatic fashion yesterday as Jose Bautista launched a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 8th inning to break a 2-2 tie. Bautista hit the blast off Baltimore Orioles reliever Darren O’ Day who a day earlier had words for Bautista after he struck him out. On this day Bautista would get the last laugh and he let...
The Toronto Blue Jays are having the most fun in baseball. Currently on a MLB-best 9-game winning streak and, as part of a dramatic comeback win Friday night, fan favorite SS Munenori Kawasaki hit is first career home run. But as it happened, after it happened, and chanted his name through his next at bat. Watch it all unfold (courtesy of MLB.com):
Kawasaki has been an internet...
Brett Cecil has been simply dominant this season for the Blue Jays
When Toronto Blue Jays left hander Brett Cecil made his major league debut in 2009, he was a young, under the radar promising starter. He would go on to start in 17 ball games for the Blue Jays in 2009 and finish with a winning record of 7-4, despite a underwhelming 5.30 ERA. Cecil started 2010 in AAA but was...
Toronto Blue Jays' pitcher Brandon Morrow, who is recovering from a forearm injury, has yet to resume throwing following a setback in a recent rehab start.

Mauro Gomez went 2-3 with 2 HR’s and 5 RBI’s in the Bisons 6-3 win Saturday night. (Buffalo Bisons)
With Star Wars Night and Jose Reyes stealing all of the attention heading into the Buffalo Bisons Saturday evening contest versus the Durham Bulls, an unexpected player put the “star” in Star Wars Night as Mauro Gomez came up big, guiding the Bisons to a 6-3 victory.
I don’t know what the top story in baseball actually is, because we don’t have a measurement for that. I guess it could be anything. What it should be, though, is the fact that the Toronto Blue Jays have won 11 consecutive games. If this were a simple 11-game winning streak, it’d be newsworthy, just because of the odds. But adding to the richness here is the identity of the...

Buffalo, NY - It was Jose Reyes’ debut in Buffalo, but it was a 24 year-old call-up who stole the show Friday night at Coca-Cola Field.
Center Fielder Kevin Pillar was called up by the Bisons from Double-A New Hampshire Friday morning, and inserted immediately into the staring lineup as his 2-run double in the fifth scored Sean Ochinko and Reyes,...
The Toronto Blue Jays have won 10 games in a row and sit one game over .500. The Blue Jays’ run has been mightily impressive. They have been getting amazing production from their bullpen and the offense finally seems to be gelling together. That being said, I sincerely doubt that the Jays will suddenly run the table for the rest of the season and I also doubt that...
Jose Bautista hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays won their 10th straight game Saturday, beating the Baltimore Orioles 4-2.
Maicer Izturis hit a solo homer in the fifth and Bautista had a two-run drive for Toronto, on its longest winning streak since a 10-game run late in 2008. The Blue Jays, who are 14-4 this month, are one victory from matching...

Buffalo, NY - Patience was tested Sunday at Coca-Cola Field.
