Blue Jays place LHP Happ on 10-day DL with sore elbow

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher J.A. Happ

Jon Morosi is saying that the MRI on J.A. Happ's elbow showed no damage, just inflammation.

Manager John Gibbons believes Happ will be ready to pitch when he is eligible to return from the disabled list.

With untimely injuries to Aaron Sanchez and J.A. Happ, the Blue Jays are reportedly set to roll out Mat Latos and Casey Lawrence for this weekend's series against the LA Angels. At present, it doesn't seem that the Jays have any obvious candidates to be transferred from the 10-day DL to the 60-day DL, which could suggest that a DFA is on the horizon in Toronto. However, first thing's first; two quality starts and two wins would go a long way in jump-starting a Blue Jays win streak and the journey to a playoff three-peat.

If this slump continues, the Blue Jays might be forced to implement a major overhaul of their lineup come June or July.

A portion of nail was removed from his right middle finger on Monday during a procedure performed by Dr. Glenn Goldstein in Kansas City.

Lawrence, also 29, logged a 4.17 ERA with 6.0 K/9 against 2.1 BB/9 in 162 innings between Double-A and Triple-A last season. He has a 4.50 ERA and 20 punch-outs through 16 innings of work.

Infielder Ty Kelly was recalled from the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons in a corresponding move.

That is what looks to be happening to the Toronto Blue Jays with a 2-10 start.
