TORONTO (AP) — Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes won’t need surgery on his sprained left ankle, but is still expected to miss three months, general manager Alex Anthopoulos says.
Reyes visited a specialist in Charlotte on Monday who confirmed the diagnosis of a severely sprained ankle. Reyes was injured sliding into second base in Friday’s game at Kansas City. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday.
Anthopoulos says Reyes will be in a cast for two weeks and then in a walking boot for an additional two weeks, meaning he won’t be ready to begin rehab activity for at least a month.
Acquired from Miami in a 12-player trade last November, the four-time All-Star is batting .395 with one homer and five RBIs.
