Reyes leaves opener with hamstring tightness

Four-time All-Star Jose Reyes left Monday’s season opener against the Tampa Bay Rays due to “left hamstring tightness” following what appeared to be a routine fly out to centre field, the organization confirmed via Twitter following the game.

Reyes flied out to CF in the top of the first but showed no discomfort while running to first.

Infielder Ryan Goins later replaced him as shortstop between Brett Lawrie at third base and Maicer Isturis at second.

The veteran Reyes missed 66 games in 2013 with a left ankle sprain and has played fewer than 135 games in four of his last five seasons.

In 2003, Reyes suffered an ankle sprain on his left side during an August 31 matchup against the Phillies, landing him on the disabled list just shortly after making his Major League Baseball debut.

Reyes, a four-time MLB All-Star, was acquired by the Blue Jays in a blockbuster deal in November 2012 from the Miami Marlins.

He was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday at the latest.


On Sunday, closer Casey Janssen was placed on the 15-day disabled list [retroactive to March 29] with a left abdominal/lower back strain. Catcher Chris Getz was later recalled from AAA Buffalo.

On March 26, pitcher J.A. Happ was placed on the 15-day DL with lower back tightness.

The Blue Jays open the 2014 Regular Season with a four-game series in Tampa Bay and their home opener is scheduled for Friday, April 4 against the New York Yankees at Rogers Centre.
