Reyes isn't concerned about tight hamstring

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Jose Reyes left Saturday's 9-4 win over the Tigers after the third inning because of a tight left hamstring.

Toronto's shortstop attempted to downplay the incident by saying it was precautionary and didn't think it was a big deal. There's no immediate timeframe for his return to the lineup, but Reyes appears to be considered day to day.

Manager John Gibbons took a similar relaxed tone in his postgame scrum with reporters and responded "zero" to a question about his level of concern for the injury.

"If he didn't play a week from now, we'd have a lot of concern," Gibbons added.

Reyes had a lot of hamstring issues earlier in his career, but has been able to avoid any type of serious problem for the past two seasons. He last spent time on the disabled list with a hamstring issue in 2011, when he missed 29 games. Prior to that, his last DL stint because of a hamstring came in '04.

The 30-year-old Reyes is hitting .255 in 17 games this spring. He also has three doubles and five runs scored to go with three walks.
