Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (hamstring) is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Monday, March 24, on his tight left hamstring. He was initially listed as day-to-day, but the tightness in his leg hasn't gone away. Reyes went on the disabled list twice in 2011 for a similar hamstring injury. If Reyes needs to go on the DL to start the year, the team will likely choose from INFs Chris Getz, Jonathan Diaz or Munenori Kawasaki in a backup role at shortstop behind 2B Ryan Goins, who would move over from second base.
Fantasy Tip: Have a backup plan at SS in place if you own Reyes. It's disturbing that Reyes is already dealing with leg issues, but we'll have to wait to hear the extent of his injury. Check back for more news.

The Kansas City Royals activated 2B Chris Getz (knee) from the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 12, and optioned INF Irving Falu and SP Will Smith to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Getz is expected to be in a platoon with veteran Jamey Carroll at second base moving forward. Both players should only be relied on in AL-only leagues.

The Kansas City Royals acquired 2B Jamey Carroll from the Minnesota Twins Sunday, Aug. 11, in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations. Manager Ned Yost said Carroll will platoon at second base with 2B Chris Getz (knee) when he returns from the disabled list. Carroll also provides depth at third base and shortstop.
Fantasy Tip: Now that Miguel Tejada (calf) is also on the DL, Carroll should see the lion's share of playing time at the keystone until Getz returns. Carroll is handy as middle infield depth in AL-only leagues.
