Jays’ Reyes out for series finale with Reds

Jose Reyes (Frank Gun/CP)

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes left Saturday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds in the top of the fifth inning after limping off the field from a ball he fouled off his knee.

Reyes left for precautionary reasons because of soreness in his left knee and will not play in Sunday’s series finale, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.

Steve Tolleson came on in the bottom half of the inning to replace Reyes at shortstop.

Earlier this season, Reyes was forced to miss 16 games with a left hamstring injury he suffered running up the first baseline on his first at-bat of the season.

Since returning, however, Reyes has played in every game but one and has posted a .252/.312/.386 slash line with 62 hits, five home runs and 19 RBI.
