Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (back) has been shut down temporarily due to his sore lower back. He's expected to take a few days off from throwing, at minimum.
Fantasy Tip: This gives Sergio Santos at least another week in the interim closer job. At this rate, if Janssen struggles to stay healthy or return to his old form on the field, Santos could serve in the role for even longer.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (back) will throw a side session Wednesday, April 9, and he expects to need one or two rehab outings before he returns from the disabled list, which means he's unlikely to be ready to return when eligible.
Fantasy Tip: Janssen is eligible to come off the DL Sunday, but that probably won't happen. He could, however, be ready to go at some point early next week. Janssen is expected to be the team's closer when healthy, but they may ease him back in, giving Sergio Santos more run as a fantasy closer.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said the team doesn't expect RP Casey Janssen (side, back) to be out long with a strain in his left side and lower back. C Erik Kratz was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo when the team put Janssen on the disabled list. Janssen will be eligible to return April 13.
Fantasy Tip: This could be a tricky injury to shake quickly, especially for Janssen, since he didn't see much action this spring. Prepare for an absence longer than his short DL stint. If you haven't already done so, Sergio Santos should be added immediately in all leagues.

The Toronto Blue Jays activated RP Sergio Santos (elbow) from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Aug. 1, and placed SP Dustin McGowan (side) on the 15-day disabled list and moved SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) to the 60-day DL in corresponding moves.
Fantasy Tip: Santos will return to a setup role to Casey Janssen. Santos won't have much fantasy value. Morrow's season is effectively over with this move.
