by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) The Blue Jays announced several roster moves before activating shortstop Jose Reyes from the disabled list on Friday.

The team selected the contract of infielder Juan Francisco from Triple-A Buffalo and transferred Maicer Izturis to the 60-day disabled list following a 3-2 win over Cleveland. The team also placed Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The surgery will keep Izturis out at least four months, though he could require up to six months to recover, and is likely out for the remainder of the season according to MLB.com.

Izturis is still set to seek a second opinion before undergoing surgery, but it appears inevitable at this point. The 33-year-old was hitting .286/.324/.314 through the first 11 games of the season before suffering the injury Sunday.

Hot Maicer Izturis not named starter over cold Ryan Goins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Maicer Izturis has made four straight starts for the Blue Jays at second base, but John Gibbons has declined to name him the full-time starter ahead of struggling Ryan Goins.

Izturis boasts a .455 batting average while Goins has just one hit in 19 at-bats this season. But Gibbons believes the latter is a better all-around fielder and refuses to commit to Izturis.

"I'm not ready to stay that," Gibbons told the Toronto Sun. "Izturis gives you some offense and some defense. Goins is a defensive specialist. We think he's going to hit enough. He's off to a slow start but I expect him to improve on that. But right now we're playing the hot hand, the guy that's swinging the bat."

Gibbons added that he might have considered continuing to play Goins if others in the lineup were hitting better.
