Jose Reyes diagnosed with mild hamstring strain

20 Comments

Jose Reyes left Saturday’s Grapefruit League game with left hamstring discomfort and Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that an MRI today revealed that he’s dealing with a mild strain.

The Blue Jays are calling Reyes day-to-day for now, but given his long history of his hamstring issues, it wouldn’t be surprising if they decide to play things safe and have him begin the season on the disabled list. They’ll likely hold off making an official decision until later in the week.

Assuming Reyes begins the year on the disabled list, the Blue Jays will likely go with Ryan Goins at shortstop and Maicer Izturis at second base.
