Toronto Blue Jays’ Jose Reyes Recovering from Ankle Sprain
Jose Reyes, shortstop for the Toronto Blue Jays, suffered a severe ankle sprain on April 12 while attempting to steal second base in a game against the Kansas City Royals.
The ankle sprain was expected to keep him out of play for between one and three months. He is getting to close to returning now and it is even possible he could start a rehab assignment in the next couple of weeks.
He has already been taking part in some drills and batting practice. Apparently, Reyes is still feeling a bit of weakness in the ankle, but the pain is gone.
Reyes has been advised to wear an ankle brace on the ankle throughout the rest of his baseball career.
Ankle braces are helpful because they give the ankle some extra support, which may needed after a severe ankle sprain. Ankle braces are more effective than taping the ankle, so if you are playing sports after a sprain and are trying to prevent chronic pain from developing, avoid taping and go with an ankle brace instead.
