Jays purchase contract of former Cat Jonathan Diaz

Jose Reyes' inability to stay healthy has landed former Thunder Bay Border Cats shortstop Jonathan Diaz back in the big leagues.

The Toronto Blue Jays on Monday purchased Diaz's contract from Triple-A Buffalo, recalling the second-year infielder after Reyes went down with a hamstring injury after a single at bat in the team's opening-day loss to Tampa Bay.

Diaz had three hits in 24 spring-training at bats with the Blue Jays, scoring seven times. He saw his first taste of major league action last season with the Boston Red Sox, scoring two runs while going hitless in four at bats.

Diaz, who won a Northwoods League championship with the Cats in 2005, turned pro in 2006. 

The oft-injured Reyes was placed on the 15-day disabled list. He missed 69 games due to injury in 2013, his first season with Toronto.
