There's a few little bits of Blue Jays news:
- Jose Reyes cracked rib has 'pretty much healed' according the latest MRI. He'll start swinging a bat today. His DL time is up next Wednesday and he could be back then or soon after. He might get a couple of rehab games in the minors.
- Michael Saunders' knee is feeling much better after being drained and a cortisone shot, he isn't starting today but could pinch hit and he'll be starting tomorrow.
- Jose Bautista is still a long way from being able to play outfield.
- And the Jays won't have to worry about David Ortiz tonight, he's serving a 1-day suspension for bumping an umpire.
And we get a look at the Russell Martin bobblehead courtesy a tweet from Mike Wilner.
