Although the Blue Jays are listing him as day-to-day, Adam Lind (back) admitted that it "would be a miracle" if he felt better Wednesday.

Lind was lifted from Tuesday's game with lower back tightness. It's sounding like an injury that could ultimately force him to the disabled list, but we'll just have to see how he recovers. At the very least, he figures to miss the next couple games.

Brett Lawrie hit a grand slam in the ninth inning to extend the lead, and the Blue Jays finished off the Twins 9-3 on Tuesday.

Lawrie's only hit of the game was a big one, as he sent a Jared Burton fastball deep into the Minnesota night to give the Jays some insurance runs. The homer was his third this season. Lawrie also had an RBI sacrifice fly earlier in the game, giving him five RBI total on the evening, and the five-RBI night was his first ever in the majors.
Apr 16 - 12:18 AM

Jose Bautista went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Blue Jays' win over the Twins on Tuesday.

Bautista broke out of a mini slump on Sunday, and he continued to heat up against Phil Hughes and the Twins' relievers on Tuesday. He delivered an RBI single and later came around to score in the Jays' five-run sixth inning. The run batted in was his 10th on the year, and the outfielder is batting .267 and climbing with his output in recent days.
Apr 15 - 11:57 PM

Brandon Morrow needed 98 pitches to get through 3 2/3 innings Tuesday, taking a no-decision in the Blue Jays' win over the Twins.

It was a frustrating outing for Morrow after he flashed some serious promise his last time out against the Astros. On Tuesday, he walked four batters and allowed four hits but gave up just two runs, a problem of efficiency more than anything else. It's a shame, too, as Aaron Loup, the pitcher who replaced Morrow, earned the win instead. Morrow will try to last longer Sunday when the Jays travel to take on the Indians.

Adam Lind left Tuesday's game against the Twins with lower back tightness.

Lind dealt with back issues late last season, as well, though it's not clear if this is a flare-up of that ailment. The Blue Jays should provide an update on his status after the game.
Apr 15 - 10:50 PM

Colby Rasmus (hamstring) is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Tuesday.

Rasmus left Sunday's game with a tight hamstring and the Jays wanted to give him an additional day of rest after the off day. He remains day-to-day. Jose Bautista is getting a start in center field in Rasmus' place.
Apr 15 - 7:09 PM

Jose Reyes (hamstring) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Reyes played in an extended spring training game Monday and will play two rehab games with High-A Dunedin starting on Tuesday. If he gets through those contests with no setbacks, he'll be back in the lineup on Friday in Cleveland. Reyes was injured in the first inning on Opening Day when he aggravated his left hamstring injury.

Blue Jays sent RHP Jeremy Jeffress outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Jeffress was designated for assignment earlier this month, but passed through waivers unclaimed. He has 72 hours to decide whether to elect free agency or accept the minor league assignment.
Apr 15 - 3:00 PM

Blue Jays designated RHP Marcus Walden for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Munenori Kawasaki on the 40-man roster. Walden had a brief stint with the big club earlier this month, but didn't make an appearance. The 25-year-old owns a 3.73 ERA over 90 starts and 24 relief appearances in the minors.
Apr 15 - 2:49 PM

Maicer Izturis is expected to miss 4-6 months with a ligament tear in his left knee.

The Blue Jays announced that he suffered a complete tear of the LCL in the knee. It's an awful break for Izturis, who suffered the injury tripping down the dugout steps Sunday. He's expected to receive a second opinion before setting a date on surgery, but it looks like his season could be over. While Izturis was beginning to make his claim on the starting second base job in recent days, Ryan Goins should get most of the starts moving forward.
Apr 14 - 5:49 PM

Steve Delabar (leg) pitched a scoreless inning of relief on Saturday against the Orioles.

Delabar was hit in the right leg by a comebacker on Wednesday but X-rays were taken and came back negative.
Apr 14 - 2:38 PM

Colby Rasmus left Sunday's game against the Orioles with a tight hamstring.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after the game that the injury isn't serious and that he doesn't expect it to be an issue moving forward.
Apr 13 - 5:05 PM

Blue Jays activated LHP J.A. Happ from the 15-day disabled list.

With no current opening in the Blue Jays rotation, Happ will work out of the bullpen for the time being. He doesn't hold any fantasy value while pitching in relief.
Apr 13 - 4:57 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

With Maicer Izturis hitting the disabled list on Sunday, Kawasaki will provide much needed depth in the middle infield. He can safely be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Apr 13 - 4:55 PM

Blue Jays optioned C Erik Kratz to Triple-A Buffalo.

Kratz appeared in seven games with the Blue Jays, going 2-for-10 (.200) with a homer and four RBI. He'll continue to provide depth at Triple-A and should get another opportunity with the Jays soon enough.
