Reyes missed a series against the Atlanta Braves a weekend ago. He believes he hurt himself on a check swing in early April on the road against Baltimore. He said an MRI two weeks ago revealed the cracked rib and a strained muscle.
After sitting out the series against the Braves, Reyes returned to hit 3-for-23 with two RBI and five strikeouts.
Manager John Gibbons previously said the Blue Jays were hoping Reyes could avoid going on the disabled list. The pain was worse when the switch-hitting Reyes batted left-handed, so Toronto was experimenting with Reyes hitting from the right side until he healed.
