Jose Reyes is batting second and playing shortstop in his Rockies debut on Wednesday.
Manager Walt Weiss has chosen to keep Charlie Blackmon in the leadoff spot and move D.J. LeMahieu down to the No. 5 hole. Reyes was acquired from the Blue Jays earlier this week in a blockbuster deal that sent Troy Tulowitzki to Toronto. Jul 29 - 12:04 PM

Rockies acquired SS Jose Reyes and RHPs Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco from the Blue Jays for SS Troy Tulowitzki and RHP LaTroy Hawkins.

The deal is now official. Reyes would appear to be an odd fit for the Rockies, who have prospect Trevor Story in Triple-A, so the expectation is that he could be eventually flipped to another team. The Rockies would likely have to eat some salary in order to do it, as Reyes has showed diminished skills at the plate and in the field. The 32-year-old is owed $22 million in 2016 and 2017 and his contract includes a $22 million club option or a $4 million buyout for 2018. This is the second time he's been traded since signing his six year, $106 million contract with the Marlins in December of 2011.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are not interested in reacquiring Jose Reyes.

Reyes is set to be traded to the Rockies (along with Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco), but many expect that he will eventually be flipped elsewhere. The 32-year-old is owed $22 million per season through 2017, with a $22 million option or a $4 million buyout for 2018, which would likely be too expensive for the Mets unless the Rockies were to absorb a big chunk of his remaining salary. Reyes has also shown a decline in skills, both at the plate and in the field. He's batting .285 with four home runs and a .708 OPS over 69 games this season.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Thursday that Jose Reyes was fine and should be able to play on Friday.

Reyes was forced to leave Thursday's game after taking an errant throw off his face. Gibbons indicated he had been hit on the lips and was "spitting a little blood", but otherwise should be fine. Look for Reyes to be at his regular post atop the Blue Jays lineup on Friday.
Jul 23 - 8:29 PM

Jose Reyes left Thursday game against the Athletics in the eighth inning with an apparent injury.

Reyes appeared to injure himself in a collision at second base, potentially as a result of being hit by the ball. Ryan Goins replaced him at shortstop. The Blue Jays should pass along an update soon.
Jul 23 - 5:50 PM

Jose Reyes had a big day Saturday against the Royals, going 3-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored, a walk, and three stolen bases.

It was his second three-steal game of the season, so six of his 14 steals this season have come in just two games. Reyes has hit safely in seven straight games, but he still owns an underwhelming .277/.308/.386 batting line on the year.
Jul 11 - 5:29 PM

Jose Reyes is out of the Blue Jays' lineup Thursday.

It's just a day of rest for the veteran shortstop. Ryan Goins is starting at short and batting ninth as the Jays wrap up a four-game series against the White Sox.
Jul 9 - 11:56 AM

Jose Reyes stole his 11th base of the season and scored a run against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Reyes finished the game 1-for-4 with the stolen base and run scored. The steal was just his second since June 7, a problematic stretch for a player whose value relies as much on speed as Reyes' does. Still, the 32-year-old is having a respectable year, batting .272/.302/.383 with four homers and 31 runs scored to go with his 11 stolen bases.
Jul 7 - 11:10 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, but the Blue Jays were bested on Tuesday by the Red Sox.

Reyes' two-run blast came in the seventh inning off of Tommy Layne and brought the Jays right back into the game. The shortstop has had a quiet year at the plate, batting .267/.302/.386 with four home runs, 27 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.
Jun 30 - 10:24 PM

Jose Reyes went 0-for-4 in a losing effort against the Rangers on Saturday.

He was one of six Blue Jays regulars held without a hit as the team was shut out by Yovani Gallardo and company. The Jays tallied just three hits as a team.
Jun 27 - 4:16 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored as the Blue Jays fell to the Orioles on Saturday in Toronto.

Reyes has been outstanding when he's been able to remain on the field this season, slashing .287/.316/.389 with two homers, 22 RBI and nine stolen bases in 167 at-bats. He has been one of the top performers at a weak shortstop position.
Jun 20 - 4:10 PM

Jose Reyes went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored, and three stolen bases Saturday against the Astros.

He also drew a walk. Reyes had four steals in 26 games coming into Saturday's action, so this was nice to see. It's safe to say that his rib is feeling a lot better after his recent stint on the disabled list.
Jun 6 - 4:30 PM

Jose Reyes launched his first home run of the season in Friday's win over the Astros.

It was a two-run shot in what turned out to be a five-run third inning for Toronto. Reyes went homerless over his first 25 games, so he hasn't been what many were expecting, but his rib injury has surely impacted his production. Fantasy owners will have to hope that he's finally feeling good.
Jun 5 - 9:50 PM

Jose Reyes went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles and a walk as the Blue Jays easily handled the Nationals in Wednesday's win.

Reyes padded the Jays' lead to 5-0 with an RBI single in the fifth, then tacked on to make it 7-0 with another RBI single in the sixth. Since returning from the disabled list on May 25, Reyes has hit safely in eight of nine games, raising his triple-slash line to .284/.299/.353 with 12 RBI and 10 runs scored in 109 plate appearances.
Jun 3 - 9:27 PM

Blue Jays activated SS Jose Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.

Reyes is back with the Jays after missing four weeks with a cracked rib. He went 4-for-11 with two RBI on a three-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo and should be activated immediately in fantasy leagues. The veteran shortstop was batting just .250/.266/.300 in 16 games before the injury, but he can get it going in a hurry.
