NEW YORK -- Jose Reyes says he is progressing in his rehabilitation from a severely sprained left ankle, and the shortstop looks forward to joining his Toronto Blue Jays teammates on the field before the All-Star break.

Wearing a Superman T-shirt, the bearded Reyes flashed a big grin Friday while reconnecting with his teammates in the visitors' clubhouse at Yankee Stadium. He was on the field during batting practice, playing catch and standing out near his position.

"It was good today, just to be around the guys," Reyes said. "I missed that."

Injured while sliding into second base on April 12, Reyes has been rehabbing near his Long Island home and will return with the Blue Jays to Toronto after the weekend series.

Reyes says he recently began jogging lightly and has begun hitting soft toss in the last few days. His next step will be to jog on a treadmill in 10-minute blocks before running on a field, perhaps in the next week or two.
