Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ is considered a potential veteran presence at the back end of the rotation if the team does not find any upgrades on the open market. The team also likes the promise of SPs Drew Hutchison, Kyle Drabek, Marcus Stroman and Sean Nolin. Ps Esmil Rogers and Todd Redmond are also in the mix.

Either Toronto Blue Jays Ps Esmil Rogers or Thad Weber will make the start against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, Aug. 14, in place of SP Josh Johnson (forearm).
Fantasy Tip: Rogers and Weber would be short-term solutions in AL-only leagues at the most. Johnson, depending on how his MRI exam turns out, could be in danger of missing the rest of the season. You shouldn't have any reason to hold onto him.

The Toronto Blue Jays placed SP Josh Johnson (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list with right forearm tightness Tuesday, Aug. 13, and recalled RP Thad Weber from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: With J.A. Happ returning from the bereavement list soon, the Blue Jays had to go with Todd Redmond for their start tonight. Perhaps Toronto brings Esmil Rogers, who has struggled mightily recently, back into the rotation. Aside from him, they have several uninspiring fantasy options at the minor league level to choose from.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Esmil Rogers has been moved to the bullpen because of his prolonged struggles. SP Todd Redmond is making the spot start instead against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, Aug. 13. Rogers is 0-4 with an 8.50 ERA in his last seven starts and hasn't won since June 18. He's also thrown more innings than he did all of last season.
Fantasy Tip: Redmond is purely a spot starter and should be ignored in all formats.

Toronto Blue Jays RPs Casey Janssen, Sergio Santos, Darren Oliver and Steve Delabar are all locks for the bullpen, and RP Esmil Rogers, who is out of options, is likely to have the fifth spot locked up. RPs Jeremy Jeffress, Brett Cecil, Aaron Loup and J.A. Happ will battle for the final two spots.

Toronto Blue Jays RPs Casey Janssen, Darren Oliver, Esmil Rogers and Sergio Santos are considered locks for bullpen jobs heading into spring training. RP Steve Delabar also closed the season on a strong note, and displacing him might not be easy.
