The Toronto Blue Jays activated SP Josh Johnson (triceps) and OF Rajai Davis (oblique) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 4, and placed SP Ramon Ortiz (elbow) on the 15-day DL with a right elbow strain in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson returns to start Tuesday night. He should still be owned in most deep mixed leagues, but deciding whether to start him in his first game back isn't automatic. Davis should return to part-time duty in the outfield and shouldn't be forgotten as a decent source of thefts in deep formats.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Ramon Ortiz (arm) suffered an apparent arm or elbow injury in his appearance Sunday, June 2, against the San Diego Padres. Ortiz reportedly threw his glove down after suffering the injury, then broke down in tears.
Fantasy Tip: Ortiz was to replace an injured Brandon Morrow (forearm) in the rotation, but it appears Ortiz has a much more serious injury. We wish Ortiz well, and hopefully it isn't as serious as it looked for the 40-year-old.

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.
