Jose Reyes, Casey Janssen both ready for rehab assignments

Per the National Post’s John Lott, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons says shortstop Jose Reyes and reliever Casey Janssen are both set to begin their rehab in Dunedin, Florida. Reyes will likely play on Monday, and Janssen should join the action soon thereafter.

Reyes suffered a strained hamstring towards the end of spring training. The hamstring has been a source of discomfort for Reyes throughout his career, so while it was dismaying to see him hurt again, it also was not surprising. Janssen went on the shelf with a back strain right before the Jays wrapped up spring training. Gibbons says both could be back in time for the Jays’ series against the Indians in Cleveland next weekend.

Jonathan Diaz has been filling in for Reyes at shortstop, but has only been able to muster a .611 OPS in 21 plate appearances. Sergio Santos moved into the closer’s role in Janssen’s stead and has done a good job, recording four saves and ten strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.

      WTF is with that strike zone in Baltimore? And the call on Ktratz’s “swing”? The home plate umpire heli-sucks.

        You said it best.

        Hail Colby.

        The Jays got a break. It really did look as if he had gone around on that checked swing.

        Yep. The two edged sword of crappy umping.

        Craig (or another moderator): do we really need to put up with this kind of crap? What does it take to get someone who posts garbage like this banned? Seriously!

        Cur always posts GFY…so u want him banned too?

      • nbjays - Apr 13, 2014 at 8:52 AM

        The “GFY” wasn’t the part of the post you should be banned for, but then you already knew that.

        I see fecalbear is still at it. Don’t worry nbj. Craig’s rules on commenting refer to stuff like this. He’ll ban people for mindlessly attacking others. Fecalbear here makes enough of a pain of himself he’ll be gone. In fact, given that its Old Gator he goes after the most, I’m surprised that he hasn’t been punted. Knowing Gator I bet Craig asked him about banning this little worm and Gator said to leave him alone for now. Gator likes the stupid ones. He can insult them and they never get it. It gives him a chance to work out different ways of saying “you are an odious little worm”.
