Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes has been diagnosed with what the team is calling a small crack in his left rib.

John Lott of the National Post reports that he’ll sit out the entire weekend with the hopes of returning next week and avoiding the disabled list, but if he’s not ready to play by Tuesday the Blue Jays will put him on the shelf.

Ryan Goins, who was called up from Triple-A, is expected to be Reyes’ primary fill-in at shortstop.
