Blue Jays' Jose Reyes nearing rehab assignment

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes has resumed running the bases and his recovery from a severely sprained ankle has been going very well. The All-Star has progressed to the point where general manager Alex Anthopoulos told Evan Peaslee of MLB.com that he expects Reyes to begin his minor league rehab assignment in the next 10 days.

"He's certainly getting close, and it's great to see," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos, who added Reyes will begin his rehab assignment in within the next 10 days. “Then it'll be a question of how many at-bats is he going to need, and how [do] his legs feel after playing seven innings, nine innings, and so on. But we're definitely going to be anxious to have him back."
When Reyes initially hit the DL with his ankle injury, he was projected to be out until July. However, given his recovery has gone as well as it has, it's more recently been reported that he could rejoin the Blue Jays by the end of this month.

Once he begins his minor league rehab assignment and Toronto sets how many games or at-bats he'll need to see, his return date will become more clear. The Blue Jays can't wait to get him back atop their order, as he was sporting a batting line of .395/.465/.526 when he hit the DL.
