Jurickson Profar will be shut down 2-3 months with renewed soreness in his right shoulder.

There's no surgery planned yet for Profar, who missed the entire 2014 season due to a torn muscle in his right shoulder. But he has experienced multiple setbacks in his rehab and will likely remain a question mark heading into spring training in 2015. Profar, still a dynamic young talent, turns 22 years old next February.

Marcus Stroman won't make another start this year.

Stroman is going to pitch out of the bullpen when he returns from suspension later this week.

He should be a big weapon for the Toronto starting rotation in 2015 and beyond.
