KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes will be out for three months, according to Blue Jays' general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

The 29-year-old shortstop suffered a severe ankle sprain on Friday. The Jays' GM added that there is no fracture but that another MRI will be needed due to severe swelling.

The Jays have placed Reyes on the 15-day disabled list and recalled Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

Reyes injured his left ankle in Friday's 8-4 win over the Royals. Reyes slid awkwardly stealing second base in the sixth inning; he was tended to by trainers from both teams and eventually carted off the field.

Kawasaki, 31, hit .192 in 61 games for Seattle in 2012. He signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays on March 14 and began the season in Buffalo, where he's 2-5 (.400) on the young season.

Reyes' absence has forced a number of changes in the Jays' Saturday line-up.

Emilio Bonifacio will play right field and hits lead-off ahead of Melky Cabrera. Jose Bautista returns to third base and hits third before designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion. First baseman Adam Lind hits fifth and Colby Rasmus hits sixth. Maicer Izturis returns to second base after missing two games and hits eighth ahead of Henry Blanco, who is inserted into the line-up to catch R.A. Dickey. Kawasaki draws in at shortstop and will hit ninth.
