Toronto Blue Jays Roster Report 2009-05-09


Toronto Blue Jays Roster Report 2009-05-09
--RHP Scott Richmond entered with a 4-0 record and 2.67 ERA and took his first loss of the season. The AL rookie of the month for April gave up five runs and six hits in the second inning. He was fine afterward, permitting just two runners the rest of his first career complete game.

--C Rod Barajas, who homered in the second inning, reached the 300-RBI plateau for his career. He has driven in 14 runs in his last 14 games. He had just three RBIs in his first 11 games.

--2B Aaron Hill is back in Oakland, where he had his season-ending injury last May. Hill collided with SS David Eckstein and sustained a concussion, but now he's feeling super. He went 1-for-5 Friday and is hitting .357. He's the majors' leader in hits with 51.

--LHP B.J. Ryan (left trapezius tightness) has been assigned to Class A Dunedin on a rehabilitation assignment. Ryan made six appearances for the Blue Jays (two saves and an 11.12 ERA) before going on the disabled list.

MEDICAL WATCH:

RHP Casey Janssen (right labrum surgery in March 2008) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. He missed all of last season. He began a rehab assignment with Class A Dunedin on April 27, and he could be back with the Blue Jays in mid-May.

LHP Ricky Romero (strained right oblique muscle) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 20. He threw a bullpen session May 2 and was getting closer to beginning a rehab assignment.

LHP B.J. Ryan (left trapezius tightness) went on the 15-day disabled list April 23. He began a rehab assignment with Class A Dunedin on May 7.

C Michael Barrett (torn right shoulder muscle) went on the 15-day disabled list April 18.

RHP Jesse Litsch (strained right forearm) went on the 15-day disabled list April 14. He is expected to miss six to eight weeks. Litsch experienced discomfort while throwing on April 25.

RHP Dustin McGowan (right shoulder surgery in July 2008) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. Initially, he was expected to be able to contribute by mid-June 2009 at the latest, but it appears that a late-July date is a best-case scenario.

RHP Shawn Marcum (Tommy John elbow surgery in September 2008) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. Initially, the Blue Jays didn't expect him back until 2010, but more recently he was expected to return by August.
