Jose Reyes (SS)

Toronto Blue Jays - 100% owned

Bats: B, Throws: R

Jose Reyes left Thursday's game in the first inning with a rib/oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes first felt the pain in Baltimore after swinging at a pitch and feeling a tweak in his left rib cage area. He has had dealings with an oblique injury stemming back to his days with the Marlins, so he is no stranger to the injury. Depending on how well he responds to treatment, Reyes could be out for a few days, or an extended period. Owners should have a plan in place incase Reyes hits the DL.

Jose Reyes has been removed from the game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Ryan Goins replaces Reyes at shortstop.

Fantasy Impact: Jose Reyes has been battling a sore oblique early this season. Reyes came back to the dugout after grounding out in the first inning, sat down and slammed his helmet in frustration before heading down the tunnel. There is no word yet on whether Reyes will head to the DL, however I would expect him to miss a few games. Be prepared to have a replacement should Reyes need a DL stint.

Fantasy Impact: This is nothing more than a scheduled day of rest for Reyes, who has had a career filled with injuries. This should give owners ample time to plan accordingly.


Jose Reyes went 1-for-3 Wednesday with an RBI.

Fantasy Impact: It was somewhat of a quiet night for Reyes in an otherwise offensive explosion for the Jays. He did however manage to collect a hit and drive in a run during their 12-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. The runs will start coming in bunches once the offense finds some consistency. He remains a top five shortstop in all leagues.

Jose Reyes continued his torrid start to the season going 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored in the Jays' 10-7 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes increased his average to .417 on the season with his three hit day, and although his offensive abilities have never been a question, it's his health that has put doubt into fantasy owners. Reyes has had a couple scares early this season, however he has remained healthy which has paid dividends to those who those who took a chance on the 31-year-old shortstop. The average will obviously come down, however expect much of the same from Reyes this season.

Jose Reyes was 2-for-4 with an RBI in the Blue Jays victory Thursday night. Reyes' RBI single in the second inning plated the Jays fourth run.

Fantasy Impact: Jose Reyes is off to a respectable start to the season as he is 3-for-12 with an RBI and a run scored over three games. Reyes should provide owners plenty of run scoring opportunities in front of Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson. He is one of the better shortstops in the game and should be used in all formats and is a good option in daily leagues as well.

Jose Reyes avoids injury scare

Jose Reyes narrowly avoided a trip to the DL Monday as Stephen Drew's foot clipped Reyes in the knee as he was rounding first base.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes was limping slightly as he pulled into second base which prompted an immediate visit from Jays trainer George Pulis. However, after a brief discussion they decided to leave him in the game. Whenever Jose Reyes begins limping, fantasy owners begin cringing. Reyes showed no signs of lingering effects as he scored on a Russell Martin single to right field. He finished the day 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.

Jose Reyes ends Spring Training going 1-for-3 with an RBI against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The good news for Reyes owners is he finished the spring healthy, the bad news is this is a player that has eclipsed 150 games played once in the last six seasons. Drafting Reyes is always high-risk/high-reward, however when he does give you a healthy season, the returns are a top five fantasy shortstop. Reyes will once again hit at the top of a powerful Blue Jays lineup, so he will provide top value in runs scored, as well as stolen base numbers in the 30's. With a career .291 average, Reyes is a strong, albeit risky, three-category fantasy shortstop.

Fantasy Impact: Reyes has looked good this spring as he usually does when he is on the diamond. Whether he can avoid injury and play a full year is the risk you take come draft day

Jose Reyes continues torrid spring

Wed, Mar 18th 12:14am EDT
By Marc Walton

Jose Reyes continued his hot spring Tuesday night going 2-3 with a triple and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: When healthy, Jose Reyes' skills are undeniable as he is a top-five shortstop in any format. Despite missing the first two weeks of 2014 due to a hamstring injury, Reyes still finished as the second most valuable shortstop in standard mixed-league formats. At 31 years old, Reyes is still a strong three category producer, and a top 50 player. Draft with confidence, but be prepared to have a contingency plan incase of injury.
