Player Notes
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that Casey Janssen (back) will miss at least the next two weeks due to a strained muscle in his abdomen/lower back.

Advice: It's a tough break for the Jays closer, who was hoping to return to the team in mid-April. Sergio Santos is serving as the ninth-inning man in his absence, but suffered an ugly blown save in his last outing.

Casey Janssen has been shut down temporarily with renewed discomfort in his lower back.

Advice: Janssen threw a scoreless rehab inning on Tuesday but woke up the next day with a sore back. He has been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with a strained muscle in his lower back and abdomen. Sergio Santos remains the Blue Jays' closer.

Casey Janssen (back) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Dunedin on Monday.

Advice: While he will report to the team Monday, it might not be until Tuesday when Janssen gets into a game. He's expected to need 2-3 appearances before being activated, which could come by the end of this week. It's not clear whether Janssen will immediately get his closer job back or if Blue Jays manager John Gibbons will ease him back into things.

Advice: Janssen felt good during and after the workout, and is likely to embark on a minor league rehab assignment early next week. Sergio Santos remains the Blue Jays' fill-in closer for now, but Janssen is coming soon.

Casey Janssen (abdomen) threw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon.

Advice: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons called the workout "impressive." Janssen will throw another bullpen session in a couple of days and could then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. If he can avoid setbacks, he should be cleared to join the Jays by the end of next week. Sergio Santos will continue to close for now.

Casey Janssen (back) is not expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday when first eligible.

Advice: The good news is that Janssen threw a bullpen session Sunday and is slated for another one Wednesday. He'll need a short rehab assignment but could be activated sometime next week. "I'll have to go down to rehab somewhere, but hopefully shortly thereafter," he said. "The hardest part is staying within that comfort zone, but still progressing. You want to go fast, but you don't want to go fast and have a setback. That's the tricky part."
