Blue Jays closer Scott Downs(notes) (toe) has been activated from the DL, and deposed closer BJ Ryan has been released. Ryan's parting gift: $10 million next season. Get Downs off your fantasy DL; he figures to regain closing duties quickly.
In other Jays news, you'll find all sorts of Roy Halladay(notes) trade discussion from Heyman today. He spotlights the Phillies as potential trading partners. MLB.com's Jordan Bastian tweets the following:
A source indicated over a dozen teams have asked about Halladay. "Serious" interest: NYY, NYM, STL, MIL, LAD, LAA, BOS
So pretty much everyone is interested. NL-only owners, prepare yourselves.
