The Toronto Blue Jays have recalled P Chad Jenkins from Double-A New Hampshire and selected the contract of SP Chien-Ming Wang from Triple-A Buffalo. In a corresponding move, INF Maicer Izturis (ankle) has been transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The Toronto Blue Jays placed SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, June 1, and recalled Ps Ramon Ortiz and Mickey Storey from Triple-A Buffalo in corresponding moves. Also, SP Chad Jenkins was optioned to Buffalo and SP Ricky Romero cleared waivers and was outrighted to Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: Ortiz is expected to replace Morrow in the starting rotation. The veteran had already made six starts this year while filling in, for an ERA of 5.01. Only consider Ortiz for your roster if you're desperate for pitching help in AL-only formats. The injury to Morrow is extremely frustrating. Those in shallow mixed leagues should consider cutting bait if they don't have the roster space to absorb this hit.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said SP Sean Nolin will start Friday, May 24, and SP Chad Jenkins will start Sunday, May 26.
Fantasy Tip: Nolin, 23, has more upside than Jenkins, and he'll be making his major league debut after going 2-0 with a 1.17 ERA in three starts for Double-A New Hampshire this year. He lacks a true dominant pitch and hasn't pitched above Class AA ball, though, so temper your expectations. Nolin and Jenkins likely face short stays in the rotation, too, limiting there value.

The Toronto Blue Jays will start SP Chad Jenkins and SP Ramon Ortiz on Monday and Tuesday, May 20 and 21, against the Tampa Bay Rays. The decision previously had been on hold in case Toronto needed to use Jenkins out of the bullpen earlier in the week. The move allows Toronto to keep SP's Mark Buehrle and R.A. Dickey on normal rest.

Toronto Blue Jays P Chad Jenkins is in line to pitch Monday, May 22, against the Boston Red Sox, although general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Tuesday, May 14, that plan could change.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (back) has been pushed back to start Saturday, May 18, with SP Russ Ortiz starting Wednesday, May 15. SP Chad Jenkins will likely be used to start early next week.
Fantasy Tip: Morrow's back ailments have become a real concern, but at least he's on track to make a start this weekend. Given his inconsistency and injury, though, it might be wise to leave him on your bench this weekend.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed OF Rajai Davis (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left oblique. In a corresponding move, SP Chad Jenkins has been called up from Double-A New Hampshire. Jenkins will start against the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 12, in place of SP Brandon Morrow (neck), who had his next start pushed back to Wednesday, May 15, against the San Francisco Giants.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Jenkins will be sent back to the minors immediately after his start Sunday because the Blue Jays won't need a fifth starter again until May 18. Look for Toronto to add a position player, such as INF Jim Negrych or OF Anthony Gose, to their 25-man roster prior to their series against the Giants.
