Casey Janssen has been temporarily shut down because of a strain in his lower back and abdominal muscle. The news isn't all bad on the injury front for Toronto, as shortstop Jose Reyes still plans to rejoin the ballclub in Cleveland and is expected to play on Saturday.
The Toronto Blue Jays are 8-6 and on top of the American League East. They've done it despite some key players with injuries that have forced backups & third stringers to play. They continue their three-game set with the Minnesota Twins tonight with ace R.A. Dickey on the mound. Let's go over the updates we have for all four Blue Jays currently injured.Adam LindLind was forced...
Jose Reyes still appears on track to re-join the Blue Jays in time for their upcoming weekend series in Cleveland. Reyes played in an extended spring training game in Florida on Monday and was in the lineup for Class A Dunedin on Tuesday night.
Jose Reyes and Casey Janssen appear headed to Florida for rehab assignments. If all goes well, Reyes might be able to return to the team by the time the Blue Jays make it to Cleveland on Friday for the final part of their nine-game road trip.
The Toronto Blue Jays are off to a great start at 6-5 and tied atop the American League East with the Tampa Bay Rays. They've done it without closer Casey Janssen and their most dynamic player, Jose Reyes. Both players are integral to any success the Blue Jays could have this season. Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca has an update on both of those players.Jose ReyesReyes started the season...
Jose Reyes, who ran some Friday and fared well, appears to be moving closer to a rehab assignment and a return to the Blue Jays' lineup. Reyes has been out since the team's Opening Day loss in Tampa Bay on March 31 due to a left hamstring injury.
Reyes has been placed on the DL and is set to get an MRI. Fantasy owners have every right to be concerned. Even when Reyes returns, his 40+ stolen base days seem to be coming to a close. - Rich Migliorisi
I had Reyes ranked sixth among shortstops anyway. He's just such a huge injury risk in year two playing on concrete, and with the average less likely to settle in at .300 than in the past, the group above offer a safer floor. - Blake Murphy
I was pretty high on Jose Reyes as a fourth or even third-round pick, as we all know he can be a #1 shortstop in a full season. Then his recent hamstring injury shook me out of my haze; I'd rather let someone else take the risk. - Tim Dierkes
