Ever since Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes severely sprained his ankle back on April 12th, it was just a matter of time before his rehab journey made it’s way to the Bisons. The only question was if he would make a trip to Coca-Cola Field.
Bisons and Blue Jays found out Wednesday that Reyes will in fact be coming to Buffalo and it will be this weekend. Reyes will make his debut on Friday when the Herd takes on Durham at 7:05 pm and is confirmed to play Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Reyes, 30, was the 2011 National League batting champion and was hitting .395 in ten games with the Jays this season. He was acquired by the Blue Jays on November 19, 2012 in a trade with the Miami Marlins.
His rehab began on Monday for Single-A Dunedin of the Florida State League. He went 5 for 12 in three games while recording one RBI and scoring three runs.
The Blue Jays have won seven games in a row and ten of their last twelve after struggling to open the season and are now just five games out of the American League Wild Card.
Queen City Sports will have exclusive tracking of Jose Reyes in Buffalo this weekend as he looks to continue his road back to the Major Leagues.

The surging Toronto Blue Jays may not be out of the running yet. They have won six games in a row and eight of their last ten.

According to John Lott of the National Post, both Reyes and Morrow are...

Ricky Romero is rebounding from a few down weeks at Triple-A.
After a dismal 2012 season the 28-year-old left hander failed to win a spot in the Blue Jays rotation this spring. He was subsequently optioned to the minors, save for two poor outings at the beginning of May.
On Wednesday night Romero pitched seven innings allowing just one unearned run on five hits and three walks. Romero...

In the .GIF you can see the three pitches compared side by side and you can see how insane the pitches actually are. Drew also explained a little more than we ever wanted to know about the knuckleball...
Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie is finally approaching a return after being out for several weeks with his sprained left ankle. Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that Lawrie is now involved in baseball activities, but manager John Gibbons was not ready to say that Lawrie would be back soon.
"We're not sure yet, but he took some groundballs, took some...
The knuckleball, by its physics-defying nature, is easily the oddest, mind-bending — and most unpredictable — pitch that can be part of a pitcher’s arsenal, which partly is why so few pitchers attempt to master the befuddling pitch. And when the knuckleball is given the StroMotion treatment — particularly pitches out of the hand of [...]The post Here’s a mind-blowing look...

For a team so very unfamiliar with long winning streaks (they haven't won more than six in a row since 2008) the current seven gamer must be very satisfying for the Toronto Blue Jays. Not only that, but they've posted a combine score of 41-11 in those games. Indeed, these are heady days for the Jays. Of course, it behooves us to heed Mike Wilner's oft-repeated observation...

It’s about that time. It’s that time in the season when the
teams that got hot too early start to stumble, and the teams that have been
coasting along under the radar start to surge toward first place. Look no
further than the Cardinals and the Padres. The fourth place Padres have won seven in a row and just swept the 1st place Arizona Diamondbacks. The
