Jose Reyes leaves game with ankle injury

In the sixth inning of tonight’s game against the Royals, Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes slid into second base awkwardly on a stolen base attempt. He immediately grabbed for his ankle, then spent most of the time writhing in pain in tears until he could be carted off the field.

The stolen base was Reyes’ fifth of the year and he is hitting .395 to boot. The Jays, off to a disappointing 3-6 start, will use Maicer Izturis at shortstop in the interim.

    My favorite player. Hope it’s just a sprain.

      Looked ugly.

      • dondada10 - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:30 PM

        Yeah just saw it. Sucks.

      You should hope it’s a break, not a sprain. A sprain won’t ever fully heal, while a broken bone will.

      The initial diagnosis is a sprain, but a MRI is planned.

        You’re up late.

      • proudlycanadian - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:17 PM

        For me yes. I am about to call it quits for the night.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:17 PM

        G’night. It’s a late game night for me.

    Get better Reyes

  3. thebadguyswon - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:27 PM

    Sucks. Probably broken.

    That’s the way baseball go. He gone.

    • dondada10 - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:30 PM

      Hawk?

      • hittfamily - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:36 PM

        It’s a mash up of Ron Washington and Hawk. I don’t mean anything by it. It is just immediately what I think of when someone is injured.

    Reyes getting injured isn’t news – it’s expected. It was just a matter of time, especially on that turf.

    This was actually one of my picks before the season started.

    • proudlycanadian - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:44 PM

      KC has a grass infield.

    • kiwicricket - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:47 PM

      Congrats on that ‘pick’ pal.

        I’m not really a psych, but I play one on hardballtalk.com

    • cur68 - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:04 PM

      Its a grass field at Kaufman, genius. jeez.

      • bigharold - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:10 PM

        Yeah, but it’s a turfy grass.

  7. xpensivewinos - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:40 PM

    “That turf?” What kind of comment is that? He was 850 miles away from “that turf” when this freak injury occurred

  8. ruffridin - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:42 PM

    That turf? The game was in KC. Hope is ok but it didn’t look good

    By the way Bill, Macir Izturis is not available tonight as he fouled a ball off his foot yesterday. Bautista moved to third from RF. Bonifacio moved from 2B to SS, DeRosa moved from third to second and Davis took over in RF. The Jays will obviously have to bring in an infielder. Goins is a possibility as he is a SS. Lawrie is not ready to be activated.

    • Bill Baer - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:21 PM

      Thanks for the update, I missed that about Izturis. Between the Jays and the Yankees, whoever finishes the year with fewer injured infielders wins.

    it broke

    • proudlycanadian - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:12 PM

      The preliminary diagnosis is just in. A sprain. A MRI is planned.

  11. detroitfanatic - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:14 PM

    Jose Reyes is injured.
    Also, water is wet. The sun is hot.

  12. 303bengalguy - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:33 PM

    evanloses > evanwins… shit up ya snarky failure at life.

  13. jaysjunkie - Apr 13, 2013 at 12:14 AM

    Well, all I can say about this one is FU*K. I thought from the way Reyes reacted that it was way worse than a sprain. Dude was actually in tears – not sure if it was from the pain or he was just so crushed from knowing he’d have to shut things down when he had been playing so great.

  14. mungman69 - Apr 13, 2013 at 12:54 AM

    He’ll be out at least a month.

  15. dwdive - Apr 13, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    Reyes is always hurt. No surprise here. Reyes and the Jays are so over rated…
