Worth mentioning

• Just because the Blue Jays lost Reyes just one at-bat into the season with a tight hamstring doesn't mean they will be looking outside the organization for additional help.

"No, we expect Jose to be back somewhat soon," Anthopoulos said. "We don't expect it to be that long of a stint."

Reyes is eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list on April 16. It's not known whether Reyes will be able to return by that date, but he's optimistic about playing somewhere around that date.
