Back spasms for Bautista. More details to come later.

Welp. Please, just stay healthy!

Better news today for Jose Reyes, who could be back in 8 weeks, rather than the 3 months the Jays first feared. http://cbsprt.co/ZwtQIJ
Another reason why Jose shouldn't be playing 3rd base.

Amen. Dumb is dumb, and it seems to be the adoptive frame of thought for this franchise currently.

Haven't posted in a while so I thought I'd put in my 0.02 on the Lawrie thing. Short term, it's a brilliant move. As soon as reyes comes back though you would have to think Bautista would be pressuring management to put him back in right field. That's where he feels he can help the team the most and unless they're prepared to bring up Gose, right field is where he should be stay.
Only in the sense that he can play all 3 OF spots. I wonder if they'd ever try him in the IF

A few guys in NH are hitting around .350. Pillar, Wilson, Tolisano, Glenn, and Robinson.

I thought I heard that Pillar got some games in at 3rd and 1st during a jays prospects podcast last year. Even if that was the case though it was probably only a handful or so.

I look at the minor league box scores on a daily basis for every team and I've never seen that. Up until this year it's only been CF, RF and occasionally LF.

This year it's all LF as they have wilson in CF and Glenn in RF

Gibby: Lawrie will be back in next couple days. Reyes won't need surgery. #Bluejays seem to be backing off Bautista at 3B idea a bit.

Thank you! Also looks like Jose's back issue isn't serious at all.

Jamie Campbell ‏@SportsnetJamie
Bautista has minor back issue. Won't play tonight. Should return tomorrow.

Just seems like everyone freaked out over Reyes. When Lawrie comes back that should push Izturis to 2nd and completely shore up our defense. Bonifacio should only be playing outfield from now on.

Still playing 2B. I think Jays just want another player to play there just in case.

This Jose at 3B and Lawrie at 2B was foolish to begin with.

Realistically, the team should be trying to get Jose at 1B/DH after this season. He is having injury issues, he's not that young anymore and it would be a good idea to play him at 1B/DH so he can stay healthy. He might not like it but Jays have to do what's best. Lind's option also won't be picked up after this season so they have an opening. Team can also get Gose into the line-up next season this way as an OF and improve team defense.

Gibbons said he’d heard nothing about Reyes down time reduced to eight weeks, as reported elsewhere.

Also, the Knobler is a troll.

Bautista back flared up yesterday during a game. #BlueJays don't expect it to be serious, or go beyond tonight.

Yeah playing 3rd not a good idea.

Jamie Campbell ‏@SportsnetJamie 11m
Reyes examined in North Carolina. No surgery needed. Will spend month in cast and boot. Reports of return in 8 weeks are premature.

AA says jose Reyes still expected to miss three months. Will be off foot for a month, so four weeks to back in action unlikely time frame.

Yep EE and Bautista for DH/1B, let them focus on what they do best.
