TORONTO -- Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes appears to be getting closer to making a return to the big-league club.

Reyes, who went on the disabled list April 13 after suffering a severe left ankle sprain, is scheduled to play for the triple-A Buffalo Bisons against the Durham Bulls this weekend.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Wednesday that Reyes is expected to be in the Buffalo lineup for the series opener Friday night.

Reyes recently began a rehabilitation assignment with the Class-A Dunedin Blue Jays of the Florida State League. The four-time all-star had two hits, stole a base and scored a run in four at-bats Wednesday as Dunedin defeated the Tampa Yankees 8-4.

In his first season with Toronto, Reyes is hitting .395 with five RBIs and five stolen bases.
