    Eric Karabell

  7. Jose Reyes already on disabled list

    Eric Karabell

    Say this for Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes: He certainly didn't waste any time getting injured this season. The speedy but brittle fourth-round selection in ESPN live drafts left Monday's game with what was called hamstring tightness after o...
