Jose Reyes could rejoin the Jays on Monday.
Shi Davidi of Canada’s Sportsnet reports that the Toronto shortstop will shift his minor league rehab assignment from High-A Dunedin to Triple-A Buffalo this Friday night, putting him one small step away from returning to the active major league roster.
Reyes has been on the disabled list since April 12 because of a severe ankle sprain. He was 5-for-12 with one stolen base and three runs scored during his three-game stay with the Dunedin Blue Jays.
The 30-year-old should be cleared for activation after putting in three more rehab games (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) at the Triple-A level.
