The Toronto Blue Jays plan to activate shortstop Jose Reyes from the disabled list on Saturday.

Reyes hasn't played since straining his left hamstring during his first at-bat of the season on March 31 against Tampa Bay. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Reyes will come off the DL before Saturday's game against the Indians and will play every day once he returns.

The switch-hitting Reyes initially injured his hamstring during spring training. He played in two exhibitions before the opener, but after hitting a sinking liner to centre in the first inning, he pulled up while running to first.

Reyes has been rehabbing his leg in Florida. He batted .296 last season for Toronto, but missed 66 games with a sprained left ankle.
