NEW YORK, New York - Jose Reyes is more than a month away from returning to the Blue Jays lineup but hes ready to get a closer view of the action. "Every game,” said Reyes when asked if hes been watching his teammates play. “I have nothing to do but watch the game and support the team from my house.” Reyes, who lives in New York with his wife and three children, has rejoined the club for the weekend series and Yankee Stadium and will accompany the team back to Toronto on Sunday evening. Its then the rehabilitation of his badly sprained left ankle will intensify. Since abandoning a walking boot more than a week ago, Reyes has been riding an exercise bike daily, trying to maintain his cardiovascular conditioning while working ankle-specific exercises. Progress was made three days ago when, under the watchful eye of his personal trainer, Rob Panariello, Reyes began jogging and hitting off a tee. Next, likely within two weeks, hell start running on a treadmill. Then when hes ready, hell move out to the field. "Believe me, sometimes my trainer, he gets crazy because I want to run so bad, I want to do everything in one day,” said Reyes. “But I have to think dont put myself back. Ive been through a lot of injuries in my career and I learned from that. I know I need to take my time, do my rehab the way Im supposed to do it and then go from there. I dont want to say take my time, but see every day how I feel and make the progression from that.” Reyes will consider the first time he runs the bases without pain a benchmark. Rounding the bases, stopping and starting on fly ball tag ups and secondary leads all put torque on the ankle. When theyre accomplished without incident Reyes will know its time to play. In the meantime, Reyes was his typical jubilant self on Friday afternoon. He stretched with his teammates and hung around the shortstop position as Munenori Kawasaki took pregame ground balls. If one wondered why Reyes is choosing to return to Toronto next week instead of continuing his rehab at the Blue Jays complex in Dunedin, the reason became obvious watching Reyes interact with his teammates. “My rehab feels like it [will] take forever,” he said. “I just want to be here with my teammates, support the guys as best I can.” “Guys are glad to see him,” said manager John Gibbons. “Hes a sparkplug, he was earlier in the year for us and just him being around gives you that good feeling.” McGOWAN TO BUFFALO Dustin McGowan, on the 60-day disabled list rehabbing his surgically-repaired right shoulder, has been transferred to Triple-A Buffalo. The 31-year-old made two appearances with Single-A Dunedin, each a scoreless inning, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out four. McGowan last appeared in a major league game on September 26, 2011. He made five appearances that month, after injuries had kept him out of the big leagues since 2008. JOSH JOHNSON UPDATE Johnson threw a bullpen session in Dunedin on Thursday and reported good health. The plan is to have the right-hander join class-A Dunedin for a rehab assignment early next week. Earlier this week general manager Alex Anthopoulos pegged May 20 or 21 as possible dates for Johnson to see minor league game action. womensbrandonmarshalljersey .

The Sharks will look to bring their seven-game slide to an end on Tuesday night, but must find a way to score some goals in St. Louis, where theyll visit the Blues. Watch the game live on TSN2 and TSN Mobile TV at 8pm et/5pm pt. San Jose shot out of the gate to begin this lockout-shortened season by winning each of its first seven games, closing last month with a 3-2 shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers. The Sharks, though, have gone 0-4-3 since that Jan. 31 victory, giving the club its longest losing streak since dropping 10 in a row (0-7-3) from Nov. 5-30, 2005. Looking to get a spark with a victory on Friday over the Chicago Blackhawks, who have yet to lose in regulation this season, the Sharks were instead handed a 4-1 setback in the third contest of a six-game road trip. Tim Kennedy netted his first goal with the Sharks, and his first since Oct. 22, 2011 while with Florida, and Antti Niemi made 33 saves but was unable to stop San Joses skid. "We dont look fast enough right now for whatever reason and a lot of thats execution. Well have to look at the way we play and try just about every line combination possible," said Sharks coach Todd McLellan. McLellan has yet to find a unit to get his power play going. The Sharks went 0-for-4 against the Blackhawks and have scored just once in 31 chances on the man advantage over their losing streak. San Jose has also scored more than two goals just once over its skid, getting shut out twice and held to just a single goal in three other games.dddddddddddd That could be an issue given that the Sharks failed to score in both of their trips to St. Louis last season, part of a four-game season series sweep by the Blues. St. Louis has won three of its last four at home versus San Jose, getting all three wins by way of a shutout. St. Louis netminders Brian Elliott and Jaroslav Halak both recorded a shut out versus the Sharks last season. With the Blues set to visit the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday, head coach Ken Hitchcock is planning on splitting the starts between Halak, who has not played since suffering a groin injury on Feb. 1, and rookie Jake Allen, who started each contest of a perfect three-game road trip with Elliott struggling and is expected to start tonight. With Halak dressed as the backup, Allen made 28 saves in Sundays 4-3 shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks, stopping both skaters he faced in the breakaway session. That came after the netminder robbed Vancouvers Alex Burrows on a breakaway attempt with 30 seconds to go in overtime. "He got a lot of speed built up. I tried to wait and see which way he was going to go. I tried to be as patient as I could and got my glove on it," Allen said. T.J. Oshie and Andy McDonald both scored in regulation and the shootout, while Patrik Berglund also had a goal for the Blues, who also won in Detroit and Calgary on the heels of an 0-4-1 skid. Four of St. Louis next five games will be at home. ' ' '
