Blue Jays transferred RHP Chad Jenkins from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Chad Jenkins underwent successful surgery Monday morning on his fractured right hand.

Jenkins suffered the season-ending fracture when he was struck by a ball during pregame warmups last Thursday. The 26-year-old righty posted a 2.56 ERA over 21 appearances this season and should have a spot in the Blue Jays' Opening Day bullpen for 2015.

Blue Jays placed RHP Chad Jenkins on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right hand.

It's unusual for teams to place players on the 15-day DL in September -- there's no benefit to be gained from it -- but the Blue Jays opted to do it anyway. Jenkins could be shifted to the 60-day DL later to free up a spot on the 40-man, but there's also no reason he couldn't have simply been placed directly on the 60-day DL when it was necessary. Jenkins is out for the season with the injury sustained in batting practice Thursday.
