Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes, is set to be sidelined for approximately three months with a severely sprained ankle according to general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

 

Reyes picked up the ankle injury while attempting to steal second base in the sixth inning of the Blue Jays game against the Kansas City Royals on Friday night.

Reyes was one of the lone bright spots on a struggling Blue Jays team. The shortstop had one home run, 5 RBIs, 5 stolen bashes and a slash line of .395/.465/.526/.991 and got on base in all 10 games he played this season.

This is a massive blow to a Toronto team, that is expected to contend for a World Series this season but has struggled out of the gates, coming into the day with a 4-6 record. Toronto recalled infielder Munenori Kawasaki from their Triple-A team the Buffalo Bisons, to take Reyes spot until they can find a more suitable solution at shortstop.
