The Toronto Blue Jays have activated RP Casey Janssen (back) from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, 2B Chris Getz has been designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Janssen will step into the closer's role right away, so activate him immediately in all leagues. RPs Aaron Loup and Steve Delabar will serve as set-up men, with RP Sergio Santos working in low-pressure situations for the foreseeable future.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (back) will rest for the next two days and then pitch again for Double-A New Hampshire Saturday, May 10. Janssen could be back with the team Sunday, May 11, or Monday, May 12.
Fantasy Tip: Aaron Loup and Brett Cecil have both earned saves since Sergio Santos was demoted from the ninth-inning role, but neither reliever is expected to have much of a shelf life with Janssen returning soon.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (oblique) will begin his rehab assignment with Double-A New Hampshire Monday, May 5, and he might need four or five outings before he's ready to return.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Sergio Santos has been removed from the closer role. RP Aaron Loup will serve as the closer Saturday, May 3.
Fantasy Tip: They are likely to go to a committee until Casey Janssen (back) returns and is ready to resume his role as closer. Brett Cecil and Steve Delabar could also figure into save chances. Cecil could have been the guy Saturday, but he threw two innings the previous day. He's a lefty, though, and may be a matchup pick in the committee. Cecil, Loup and Delabar are worth a pickup if you're in need of saves, but don't burn too many FAAB dollars on them as it's likely a short-term solution. Janssen is nearing a rehab assignment and could be installed as closer in a couple of weeks.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (back) is hoping to throw a bullpen Saturday, April 26, or Sunday, April 27, before going on a minor league rehab assignment. His rehab assignment will be longer than normal.
Fantasy Tip: Sergio Santos remains the man in the ninth for Toronto until Janssen returns. The Blue Jays are playing this extra cautious with Janssen, so he may be eased back into the closer's role when he's finally brought off the DL. You'll have to stay patient and continue stashing him a little longer.
