Jose Reyes expected to return to Blue Jays lineup on Friday
Jose Reyes should be back in the Toronto Blue Jays lineup for the team's Friday night game against the Cleveland Indians, reports Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star.
Reyes was injured in the first inning of the Blue Jays season opener, and was quickly placed on the disabled list with a hamstring issue. The shortstop has been recovering on schedule though, and took part in a game at extended spring training on Monday, and will play a pair of games for the team's Class-A minor league team in Dunedin, Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If there are no setbacks during the rehab starts, Reyes will meet the team in Cleveland.
Reyes appeared in just 93 games for Toronto last year after injuring his ankle in the first month of the season.
Jose Reyes played in an extended ST game yest, Gibby said. He'll play for Dunedin today & tomorrow, rejoin #bluejays Friday, barring setback
