David Freese (hamstring) said Friday that he suffered his injury during his final at-bat of Wednesday's game.
While he was available to pinch-hit on Friday, he's still unsure if he'll be able to return to the Angels lineup on Saturday. Ian Stewart had a big night in his place on Friday, and would likely draw the start on Saturday if Freese is unable to go.
Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a walk, and two runs scored against the Red Sox on Friday.
Markakis now has back-to-back multi-hit games, pulling his batting average up to .273 for the year. He has only drawn two walks through 15 games, which isn't ideal as a leadoff man. But history suggests that he should get his fair share of free passes as the season moves along.
Daniel Nava went 1-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Orioles.
Nava, who started in right field and batted second Friday, is hitting just .136 (8-for-59) through 15 games this season. Jackie Bradley's roster spot appears safe, so Nava or Mike Carp could be the odd man out when Shane Victorino (hamstring) comes off the disabled list. Carp went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored on Friday night.
Cesar Cabral was ejected from Friday's game against the Rays after hitting three hitters in the eighth inning.
It was an epic meltdown for Cabral, who seemed to legitimately have no idea where the ball was going. With David Robertson's impending return from the disabled list on Tuesday, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the southpaw return to Triple-A for more seasoning.
Blue Jays activated INF Jose Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.
Reyes, who has been out since March 31 due to inflammation in his hamstring, will rejoin the Blue Jays lineup on Saturday. While he's incredibly talented, his long history of hamstring injuries continues to be worrisome for fantasy owners, especially playing half of his games on the turf in Toronto.
Blue Jays transferred Maicer Izturis to the 60-day disabled list.
This was done merely as a procedural move to clear a spot for Juan Francisco on the 40-man roster. Izturis, sidelined with a ligament tear in his left knee, isn't expected to be ready to return until September.
Blue Jays optioned INF Munenori Kawasaki to Triple-A Buffalo.
The 32-year-old appeared in just two games during his brief stint with the Blue Jays, going 2-for-9 (.222) with a double and two strikeouts. He'll continue to function as organizational depth.
Blue Jays recalled INF Juan Francisco from Triple-A Buffalo.
With Adam Lind heading to the disabled list with lower back tightness, Francisco will provide additional punch off the bench for the Blue Jays. He could be worth a look in AL-only formats.
