Reyes confirmed the news on Friday after undergoing an MRI, adding that he's also battling a muscle strain in the same area. The injury reportedly occurred on a check swing against Baltimore last weekend.
Reyes left Thursday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the second inning, complaining of soreness in his ribs. A DL stint would be the tenth in Reyes' 13-year career.
The shortstop is off to a 12-for-37 start (.324), with three doubles and five RBI in 10 games. Reyes has hit .292/.338/.409 for Toronto over the last three years, but has spent time on the disabled list each season, including 69 games in 2013 with a severe ankle sprain and missing 19 days last season because of hamstring issues.
