Blue Jays 3B Donaldson (calf) to miss more time

Share
Perennial MVP contender Josh Donaldson's recurring calf injury is a major problem for the Jays who need to get back on track in a hurry to save their season

Just like the Blue Jays, Happ is off to a slow start. The 32-year-old Tulowitzki, for his part, has some good years left in him and the Blue Jays could find some trading partner for him.

The Blue Jays are will start right-handers Mat Latos and Casey Lawrence this weekend in place of the injured Aaron Sanchez and J.A. Happ, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post (via Twitter).

This isn't much of a surprise, as Happ was expected to land on the disabled list after exiting his last start due to elbow inflammation. The Blue Jays' relief corps is also pathetic, averaging 5.22 ERA with one save in four chances. Latos has pitched for five teams in the past two seasons, logging a combined 4.93 ERA in 186 1/3 innings between the Marlins, Dodgers, Angels, White Sox and Nationals. "The guys (Goldstein) has done it (to) have had no problem and it heals up pretty quick".

Gibbons said it's possible the young right-hander could be back next week in St. Louis, but it's more likely he'll return for a three-game home set starting April 28 against Tampa Bay.

RHP Danny Barnes and utility player Ty Kelly were recalled from Triple-A Buffalo Bisons to fill Sanchez and Happ's spots on the roster.

Toronto is off to a bad start with a record of 2-10 to begin the 2017 season. But you've got to put an end to it. "So we need to turn it around quickly, that's for sure".
