Toronto Blue Jays Shortstop Jose Reyes has been listed as day-to-day with a hamstring injury after the team learned the results of an MRI scan.

Reyes was removed from Saturdays game against the Detroit Tigers at the end of just three innings after feeling tightness in his left leg.

The club had been hoping that the injury would not take long to heal but after the tightness did not subside, they sent Reyes for a MRI scan and are now unsure of an exact return date for the shortstop.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons confirmed Ryan Goins as his starting second baseman for the upcoming season but Goins could be moved to shortstop if Reyes injury continues once the season starts.

If a long-term replacement is required, Gibbons may have to call up one of either Chris Getz, Jonathon Diaz or Munenori Kawasaki for the back-up second baseman role as Maicer Izturis will be the new starter.

The Blue Jays now have a week until their season opener in St Petersburg on March 31st and both the team and fans will surely be hoping for Reyes to be fit and ready by then.
