Chad Jenkins will be called up to start on Tuesday against the White Sox.

The Blue Jays went with four starters while they could, but now they need a fifth again. Jenkins has a 3.60 ERA in three starts this season but isn't much of a fantasy option even against a struggling White Sox lineup.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Chad Jenkins to Triple-A Buffalo.

Jenkins allowed eight hits and three walks but only two runs over five innings in his last outing with the Jays. He has a 3.60 ERA in three spot starts this season.

Chad Jenkins allowed eight hits and three walks but only two runs over five innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Orioles.

Jenkins was pitching on 13 days' rest, so he was predictably rusty in the first few innings, allowing a walk, five hits and two runs over the first two frames. He's lucky he only wound up allowing two runs, but the Jays will take it. If he gets another start, it will come next weekend in San Diego.

Chad Jenkins will start Sunday against the Red Sox.

Jenkins missed the first month of the season with a shoulder injury, but is coming off a strong outing in his first appearance with Double-A New Hampshire. He'll make a spot start with Brandon Morrow (neck) sidelined and could push for a rotation spot with both Josh Johnson and J.A. Happ on the disabled list.

Blue Jays recalled RHP Chad Jenkins from Double-A New Hampshire.

Jenkins is finally healthy after missing the first month of the season due to a shoulder injury. It's not clear if he'll be making a spot start on Sunday with Brandon Morrow (neck) sidelined. Jenkins posted a 4.50 ERA in 13 games (three starts) with Toronto in 2012.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Chad Jenkins to Double-A New Hampshire.

Jenkins yielded three hits and an earned run in his Grapefruit League debut and has been shut down with shoulder trouble ever since. He'll try to get healthy in minor league camp. The 25-year-old right-hander posted a 4.50 ERA in 32 innings last season for the Blue Jays.

Chad Jenkins (shoulder) played catch Thursday and is scheduled to throw a side session Friday.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons indicated earlier in the day Thursday that Jenkins was shut down indefinitely with a sore shoulder, but pitching coach Pete Walker later clarified that the shutdown was for five days and is already over. The 25-year-old right-hander is in the mix for a bullpen job this spring, but he will likely begin the season with Triple-A Buffalo.

Chad Jenkins has been shut down temporarily due to a sore shoulder.

Structural damage has been ruled out, but he's currently dealing with inflammation in the shoulder. Jenkins had a 4.50 ERA and 16/11 K/BB ratio over 32 innings with the Jays last season and was expected to be in the mix for a bullpen job this spring.

Chad Jenkins earned the first victory of his MLB career on Tuesday night after limiting the Twins to two runs on five hits over five-plus innings.

Jenkins struck out two. He cruised through the first five innings without any difficulty, but allowed a single then a two-run homer to Denard Span leading off the sixth. The Toronto right-hander finishes 1-3 with a 4.50 ERA and 16/11 K/BB ratio over 32 innings of work. He’ll enter the 2013 season with a chance to compete for a spot in the Jays’ rotation.

Chad Jenkins will start Tuesday against the Twins.

He'll start on short rest in place of Carlos Villanueva. Jenkins was chased for three runs over just 3 2/3 innings in his last start Friday vs. the Yankees and doesn't make for a strong play in fantasy leagues.

Chad Jenkins was hit hard in a losing effort against the Yankees on Friday, surrendering three runs on four hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

Jenkins also walked three and struck out two in the brief outing. Nick Swisher's two-run double got the Yankees on the board in the first, and they added another run in the second. It appears unlikely that he'll make another start this season, so the 24-year-old right-hander should finish the season with an 0-3 record, 4.67 ERA and 14/10 K/BB ratio in 27 frames.

Making his first career start, Chad Jenkins allowed one run and two hits over five innings against the Rays on Sunday.

Jenkins took the loss, but he made a nice impression in the 66-pitch outing. He's now made 11 appearances for the Blue Jays, all of them coming in losses.
Sun, Sep 23, 2012 05:19:00 PM

Chad Jenkins will make his first major league start Sunday against the Rays.

The Jays need a spot starter with Ricky Romero and Henderson Alvarez both pitching in Wednesday's doubleheader. Jenkins has posted a 4.91 ERA in 10 relief appearances for the Jays and put up a 4.96 ERA with just 57 strikeouts over 114 1/3 innings at Double-A this season. He's a poor streaming option.
Wed, Sep 19, 2012 07:31:00 PM

Chad Jenkins may start one half of the Blue Jays' September 24 doubleheader against the Orioles.

Jenkins has posted a pedestrian 4.24 ERA and 8/5 K/BB ratio in 17 innings of relief for Toronto since being promoted in early August from Double-A New Hampshire. The 24-year-old right-hander will not be a good streaming option in any fantasy league.
