DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - Jose Reyes says he was ``shocked'' the Miami Marlins traded him.
The All-Star shortstop is now with the Toronto Blue Jays. He was part of a 12-player swap that came a less than a year after he signed a $106 million contract with the Marlins.
Reyes worked out with Toronto for the first time on Friday at spring training.
The former NL batting champion says Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria always assured Reyes that he wouldn't trade him.
Reyes joined a Toronto team that reshaped its roster in the offseason and appears to be a serious contender in the AL East.
