Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes left during the first inning of his Opening Day start against the the Tampa Bay Rays with a left hamstring issue on Monday. Following an MRI today, Reyes' injury is considered to be mild inflammation, the Blue Jays announced.
The rein jury of Reyes' hamstring is not out of the blue. Last Monday, an MRI revealed that he had a hamstring strain. However, Reyes decided that he felt good and gave it a go on Opening Day. However, Reyes compared his injury to the one he had in 2011, when he missed 29 games (via Gregory Chisholm of MLB.com).
"It is a relief, that's good news," Reyes told Chisholm. "Just showed some inflammation, no damage at all. Just need some rest, should be fine, back to play."
