Marco Estrada gave up three runs in seven innings, taking a no-decision as the Blue Jays lost in 10 innings on Wednesday.

Estrada fell behind in the third inning when Jose Abreu brought in two runs with a double. The third run came in the sixth on a J.B. Shuck single. He allowed eight hits in total while walking none and striking out two. Estrada has been mediocre since moving into the rotation in early May, sporting a 5.02 ERA and a 22/9 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings as a starter. He'll look for better results in his next start, which comes on the road against the Nationals.

Josh Donaldson hit another clutch home run, tying the game at 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth, but the Blue Jays lost in 10 innings to the White Sox on Wednesday.

On Tuesday night, Donaldson hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth off of closer David Robertson. He victimized Robertson again on Wednesday, hitting a game-tying solo home run in the bottom of the ninth. Donaldson finished 1-for-4 on the afternoon. He now has 13 home runs, 35 RBI, and a .314/.374/.590 triple-slash line.

The Blue Jays are hoping that Devon Travis (shoulder) will be ready to begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

Travis took some grounders on Wednesday and his left shoulder felt fine. The Jays think he'll be ready for activation from the disabled list next Monday, but they'll just have to wait and see how he recovers over the next few days.

R.A. Dickey allowed five runs in five innings, taking a no-decision as the Blue Jays walked off 10-9 winners on Tuesday.

Dickey allowed two runs on a single and a sacrifice fly in the second inning, then three more in the fifth on a Jose Abreu three-run home run. He gave up eight hits overall with a pair of walks and five strikeouts. It's been three weeks since Dickey's last quality outing, as he has a terrible 5.77 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and a 35/23 K/BB ratio in 64 innings. He'll try to turn it around in his next start against the Nationals on the road.

Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with three doubles and five RBI as the Blue Jays won in a slugfest against the White Sox.

Bautista gave the Jays a 3-2 lead in the third inning with a two-run ground-rule double. He added a two-run double in the fifth to give the Jays a 6-5 lead, then tacked on one more run with his third double in the seventh to make it a 7-6 game. Bautista has knocked in at least one run in nine of his last 11 games and is now batting .231/.373/.485 with seven home runs and 30 RBI on the season.

Josh Donaldson homered twice on Tuesday, one of which was a walk-off three-run blast in the ninth inning, leading the Blue Jays past the White Sox on Tuesday.

Donaldson, batting second, put the Jays on top early with a solo home run in the first inning. It was a see-saw game, but Donaldson put an end to it when he belted a three-run home run to the opposite field against closer David Robertson. Donaldson finished the night 4-for-4 with a walk and five RBI. On the season, he is hitting .315/.379/.582 with 12 home runs and 33 RBI.

Blue Jays signed OF Cole Garner to a minor league contract; assigned him to Double-A New Hampshire.

Garner was batting .342/.392/.584 with eight home runs and 26 RBI in 40 games this season for Broncos de Reynosa of the Mexican League. The 30-year-old outfielder hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2011, when he tallied two hits in nine at-bats with the Rockies.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is back in the Blue Jays' starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

Bautista missed back-to-back games after getting a cortisone shot in his shoulder on Sunday, but he's apparently feeling better. He's serving as the DH in his return to the lineup, but hopes to play in the outfield again next week.
May 26 - 2:49 PM

Dioner Navarro (hamstring) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Buffalo.

Navarro has been sidelined for about a month with strained left hamstring, but he's finally ready to return to game action. He appears on track to return at the end of the month.
May 26 - 1:33 PM

Justin Smoak walked, hit an RBI single, and slugged a two-run home run in four trips to the plate as the Blue Jays enjoyed a 6-0 victory over the White Sox on Monday.

Smoak pushed the Jays' lead to 4-0 in the first inning with a two-run home run off of Hector Noesi. He added on unnecessary insurance in the eighth with an RBI single. Smoak hadn't homered since April 24 but still has a decent .246/.343/.426 batting line with three home runs and 11 RBI.
May 25 - 9:30 PM

Josh Donaldson went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run, and three runs scored as the Blue Jays shut out the White Sox on Monday.

Donaldson made it a 5-0 game with a second-inning solo blast of Hector Noesi. The third baseman is hitting a terrific .300/.363/.533 with 10 home runs and 29 RBI on the year, providing excellent production since coming to Toronto from the Athletics in an offseason trade.
May 25 - 9:27 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched a four-hit shutout against the White Sox in Monday's win.

It's the second shutout of Hutchison's career. All four hits were singles and the White Sox only once had a runner reach scoring position. Hutchison also issued zero walks while fanning eight. The terrific outing knocks the right-hander's ERA to 5.12 with a 1.31 WHIP and a 51/16 K/BB ratio in 58 innings. He'll look for more of the same his next time out in Minnesota against the Twins.
May 25 - 9:22 PM

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping to be available to play the outfield in one week.

The Blue Jays will be in Washington that night and will not have the designated hitter spot available. Bautista sat out a second straight game Monday after receiving a cortisone shot in his shoulder, but he could feel well enough to be back in there at DH on Tuesday against the White Sox.
May 25 - 4:46 PM

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup again on Monday.

Bautista also sat out Sunday after getting a cortisone injection in his ailing right shoulder. He's been bothered by shoulder discomfort for over a month, but the Blue Jays are expected to keep the slugger active and continue using him as their primary designated hitter. Edwin Encarnacion is at DH on Monday against the White Sox and Justin Smoak is at first base.
May 25 - 3:37 PM

Blue Jays activated SS Jose Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.

Reyes is back with the Jays after missing four weeks with a cracked rib. He went 4-for-11 with two RBI on a three-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo and should be activated immediately in fantasy leagues. The veteran shortstop was batting just .250/.266/.300 in 16 games before the injury, but he can get it going in a hurry.
