Jose Reyes Rib Fracture


Original Story 4/17

The Toronto Blue Jays just found out that SS Jose Reyes has a fractured rib and they could place him on the DL.  It is possible to play through, but painful.  Reyes is off to a nice start, hitting .324 with 3 doubles and 5 RBI.  It looks like Ryan Goins will play SS for the Blue Jays.  Devon Travis or Dalton Pompey will have to hit leadoff, which is a good thing, batting in front of Josh Donaldson, Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista.

Jose Iglesias is a nice option to replace the speed of Jose.  He is 4-4 stealing bases, hitting in a powerful Tigers lineup and owns a .533 OBP at the moment!  He is owned in just 52% of Yahoo leagues, but 68% of ESPN.

Other options are Brock HoltJed Lowrie and Tim Beckham who will gain 2B eligibility soon, as Asdrubal Cabrera is the Rays everyday SS.
