In a game earlier this week, Reyes dropped a soft bunt down in his first at bat. He accelerated like a shot and seemed to be halfway down the first base line by the time the pitcher left the mound to retrieve the ball before conceding the single.
"He's in an elite group when it comes to that. He's been a lot of fun to watch."
The three time all star, one of the key pieces Pants Nike Hombre in a November 2012 blockbuster trade with Miami, was hampered by injury problems in his first season in Toronto. It was more of the same earlier this year as a tight hamstring kept him out of the lineup for a few weeks.
"He's really the catalyst because he's up at the top of the lineup."
"But right now it's 110 per cent."
More than anything, he has the ability to put the Blue Jays in a position to manufacture runs. Whether through stolen bases, sacrifices or just aggressive base running, Reyes can often secure that extra base and create more scoring opportunities.
The three time National League stolen base leader (2005 '07) has also swiped 11 bags over the last 25 games entering Thursday's matchup. His well rounded game is a big reason why Toronto's offence is so feared.
"When they made the trade and brought him in last year, I think that's what everybody kind of envisioned," Gibbons said. "He's been banged up a little bit since he's been here but now he's healthy.
Reyes, 30, who won a batting title with the New York Mets in 2011, has seen his average rise as his comfort level returned. Entering the game against the Royals, he has reached base safely in 24 of his last 25 games.
Shortstop Jose Reyes healthy and in top form for Blue Jays as winning streak continues
five weeks ago, I still had a little concern with my hamstring being 100 per cent.
And over the last week or two, he finally looks like the Reyes of old.
When the next batter belted one off the wall, Reyes was quickly in full flight and scored with a head first slide. It's the kind of get your jersey dirty, fast paced style that fans and teammates love.
to run, Reyes offers a nice contrast to the big swingers like Melky Cabrera, Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista who usually follow him in the order. Pitchers have a hard time concentrating on the plate with a speedster like Reyes on base.
"He makes us that much better," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. Sports Bra Nike Pro
Once he returned, it took some time for Reyes to find his rhythm. The leadoff hitter has found it now and his play is a big reason why the Blue Jays have moved to the top of the American League East division standings.
Reyes, who had three hits in Wednesday's 3 2 win over the Rays, took an 11 game hitting streak into Thursday's game against Kansas City. He had his first three steal game as a Blue Jay last weekend and wowed the Rogers Centre crowd by scoring from second base on a groundout.
"He's one of those guys that's hard to take your eye off of when you're watching a baseball game," said Toronto second baseman Steve Tolleson. "He's able to do so many things offensively and defensively. Defensively he's able to play a little bit deeper than most shortstops because he has a tremendous arm and he has the speed to close in on balls that he needs to.
"What he's doing now is really what he's done his whole career and so I think people are just really getting a look at it."
A revitalized starting rotation and homer happy lineup are two big reasons why the Blue Jays are flying high. But Reyes has provided the powerful Toronto offence with a real edge since his return.
Reyes also brings an infectious personality to the ballpark and is usually the first one out of the dugout to congratulate his teammates.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes gets people's attention with his unique brand of baseball. He's a dynamo with great range in the field and track star speed.
"He's so capable of stirring things up," said Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon. "He's one of those catalysts. There's a few real catalytic players in the game and he's one of them."
"The last few weeks my leg feels good," Reyes said. "It's good to play pain free. I don't have to worry about anything. Before, four or Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Aeroloft Men's Down Jacket
