Blue Jays activate Santos from DL

The Toronto Blue Jays activated right-handed reliever Sergio Santos from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, and

placed Dustin McGowan on the shelf with a right oblique strain.

Santos saved 30 games for the Chicago White Sox in 2011, and was dealt to Toronto that offseason. The right-hander

missed most of the 2012 season with a right shoulder injury, and appeared in just five games this season before landing on the DL with a right triceps strain on April 14. He then had surgery on this right elbow to remove bone spurs.

In 12 rehab appearances, the 30-year-old compiled a 6.17 ERA for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays, the Dunedin Blue Jays of the Florida State League and the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons.
