The Toronto Blue Jays recalled OF Brad Glenn from Triple-A Buffalo; optioned OF Kevin Pillar to Buffalo; and designated Jonathan Diaz for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Glenn has been on a tear since being promoted to Buffalo and probably will score some platoon at-bats versus left-handers in the near future. He's a temporarily AL-only fill-in.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes' (hamstring) MRI exam showed mild inflammation in his left hamstring.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news, but Reyes will still miss at least the next two weeks. Jonathan Diaz was recalled and is starting at the 6 tonight. He's likely to see the majority of at-bats there in the interim, but you can ignore him everywhere unless you're desperate for a SS body in AL-only leagues.

The Toronto Blue Jays placed SS Jose Reyes (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Monday, March 31, due to left hamstring tightness, and they purchased the contract of INF Jonathan Diaz from Triple-A Las Vegas. Reyes battled hamstring soreness during the final week of spring training, and he left Monday's opener after just one at-bat.
Fantasy Tip: Reyes has been dealing with this chronic issue, and his stint on the DL could last longer than the cursory DL trip. With Reyes on the shelf, Ryan Goins and Maicer Izturis are likely to see more at-bats over the coming weeks, and each are decent middle infielder options in some AL-only fantasy leagues. However, don't bother with either player in mixed formats.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (hamstring) is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Monday, March 24, on his tight left hamstring. He was initially listed as day-to-day, but the tightness in his leg hasn't gone away. Reyes went on the disabled list twice in 2011 for a similar hamstring injury. If Reyes needs to go on the DL to start the year, the team will likely choose from INFs Chris Getz, Jonathan Diaz or Munenori Kawasaki in a backup role at shortstop behind 2B Ryan Goins, who would move over from second base.
Fantasy Tip: Have a backup plan at SS in place if you own Reyes. It's disturbing that Reyes is already dealing with leg issues, but we'll have to wait to hear the extent of his injury. Check back for more news.
