Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Friday.

The Blue Jays will activate both Josh Donaldson (calf) and Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) before Friday's game against the Rangers.

Toronto has been playing better in May and will get the left side of their infield back for the beginning of a 10-game homestand, so things are looking up at the moment. Donaldson has been sidelined since April 14 and Tulowitzki has been on the shelf since April 21.

Blue Jays optioned OF Dwight Smith Jr. to Triple-A Buffalo.

Smith has picked up one hit in four at-bats in a couple short stints with the big club. He'll return to a .321/.376/.457 line at Buffalo.

J.A. Happ (elbow) will require between one and three minor league rehab starts before he is ready to rejoin the team.

Happ has been on the sidelines since April 17 with left elbow inflammation. While his rehab has been slow to come together, Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins said that he could potentially return to the team in 10-15 days.

Jose Bautista went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored Wednesday in the Blue Jays' 8-4 defeat of the Brewers.

Bautista had a dreadful April, but he entered play Wednesday with a 1.023 OPS in May and slugged his seventh home run of the month in the top of the fourth inning. He also singled and scored on Ryan Goins' grand slam in the top of the sixth. It's been a remarkable turnaround for the veteran slugger, who was written off by many during his early-season slump. Bautista even started at third base for the Jays on Tuesday night -- his first start there since 2013.

Kevin Pillar slugged his seventh home run of the season Wednesday in the Blue Jays' win over the Brewers.

It was a solo shot in the fourth inning off Brewers starter Matt Garza. Pillar is already up to seven home runs through just 45 games this season after totaling seven home runs over 146 games in 2016. He finished 1-for-5 in Wednesday's win at Miller Park.
May 24 - 4:30 PM

Marcus Stroman got a win Wednesday despite allowing four earned runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Brewers.

Stroman was backed by eight runs from the Toronto offense. He gave the Brewers some life in the bottom of the sixth when he let up a three-run homer to Domingo Santana, but Milwaukee was held scoreless from there by the Blue Jays bullpen. Stroman watched his ERA jump from 3.00 to 3.30 but picked up his fifth win. He walked four and struck out five. A start at home against the Reds comes next.

Blue Jays placed OF Anthony Alford on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamate fracture.

That's an injury that usually requires 4-6 weeks of rest and rehab, sometimes much longer. Alford was just promoted to Toronto last Friday and collected his first major league hit -- a double -- on Tuesday night at Miller Park. Unfortunately for the last-place Blue Jays, the 22-year-old top outfield prospect will rack up service time while he is on the MLB disabled list.

Blue Jays recalled OF Dwight Smith Jr. from Triple-A Buffalo.

Smith went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts during a short stay with the Jays last week. The 24-year-old outfielder probably won't play regularly enough to hold fantasy relevance.
May 24 - 11:06 AM

Joe Biagini gave up three runs over 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday’s 4-3 win over the Brewers.

Biagini blanked the Brew Crew through the first four frames, but he got BABIP’d to death in the fifth with four singles, a walk and three runs. He issued three free passes on the night and recorded three strikeouts. Biagini was good in his first two starts, but that hasn’t been the case the last two times out. He’ll try for better results against the Reds in his next outing.
May 23 - 11:09 PM

Roberto Osuna tossed a scoreless ninth inning to record his seventh save of the season on Tuesday in Milwaukee.

Osuna walked Eric Sogard with two outs as he tried to protect a one-run lead, but he then got Jonathan Villar swinging to end it. He hasn't been afforded many save chances this season, but Osuna has now been unscored upon in 11 of his last 12 appearances.
May 23 - 11:08 PM

Kendrys Morales smacked a two-run homer Tuesday in Milwaukee.

Morales' longball off of Jimmy Nelson in the fifth inning extended the Blue Jays' lead to 4-0 and they wound up hanging on 4-3. While his .244/.295/.433 batting line isn't anything to write home about, Morales has swatted eight home runs and driven in 25 runs.
May 23 - 11:04 PM

Blue Jays sent C Michael Ohlman outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Ohlman accepted the assignment after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 26-year-old catcher was designated for assignment by Toronto on Saturday.
May 23 - 7:57 PM

Jose Bautista is starting at third base on Tuesday night against the Brewers.

Bautista has played some third base this season, but only as a substitute. This will be his first start there since April 14, 2013. Toronto has had to scramble at the hot corner with Josh Donaldson (calf) on the disabled list and Joey Bats could get a few more tries there if he avoids embarrassment.
May 23 - 6:19 PM

Francisco Liriano (shoulder) is expected to make a rehab start on Sunday.

Liriano had a successful live batting practice session on Tuesday evening and will be cleared to join one of the Blue Jays' minor league affiliates this weekend if he wakes up Wednesday with no abnormal discomfort. The veteran left-hander is on track to return to Toronto's starting rotation in early June. He has a 6.35 ERA in 28 1/3 innings this season.
