Reyes went 4-for-5 with three runs scored in Monday's win over the Rangers. The Tigers ended up winning 14-0 and No. 9 hitter Reyes played a key role in the blowout. All four of his hits were singles, but they were his first hits at the MLB level since the start of June, so he likely won't complain about the effort. Reyes is a depth outfielder at this point with a .193 batting average, but he could earn a little more playing time with Daz Cameron (toe) on the injured list and Nomar Mazara no longer in the picture after getting designated for assignment Friday.
The Tigers recalled Reyes from Triple-A Toledo prior to Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Reyes hit a miserable .157 in 27 games before suffering a rib injury June 1. He was activated and optioned to Toledo on July 8, but the Tigers now require another backup outfielder with Niko Goodrum (calf) on the injured list. Reyes has been more effective in the minors, going 10-for-24 with three doubles and two triples in his last six games.
Reyes (ribs) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday. Reyes landed on the injured list with a left intercostal strain June 3, but he was recently transferred to Triple-A Toledo to continue his rehab assignment and went 2-for-8 with a run, two stolen bases and a walk across two games. The 26-year-old will remain with the minor-league club going forward but could be one of the top options to be called up if the Tigers are in need of an extra outfielder at some point.
Reyes (ribs) was transferred to Triple-A Toledo on Monday to continue his rehab assignment, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Five games into his minor-league rehab assignment, the 26-year-old moves one step closer to being activated from the injured list. Reyes hit .157 with four RBI in 83 at-bats before going down with a left intercostal strain at the start of June. It's unclear how much work he'll require at Toledo before making his return to the Tigers.
Reyes (ribs) reported to Low-A Lakeland on Tuesday for a rehab assignment. Reyes has been on the injured list with a left intercostal strain since June 3, but he's closing in on his return to the active roster. The 26-year-old should require a couple games in the minors before being activated, and he'll likely fill a depth role in the outfield with Robbie Grossman, Akil Baddoo and Nomar Mazara healthy.
