Toronto Blue Jays Roster Report 2009-05-15


Toronto Blue Jays Roster Report 2009-05-15
--RHP Casey Janssen, who is rehabbing from a shoulder problem suffered in spring training, will make a fifth rehab start Sunday at Class AA New Hampshire. After the start, the Jays probably will call him up. In four minor league games, Janssen has allowed two earned runs in 18 innings.

--LHP Ricky Romero, who is on the disabled list with a strained oblique muscle, allowed one run on three hits in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a rehab start for Class AA New Hampshire.

--LHP Jesse Carlson, who was making his 18th appearance, allowed his first homer, to the Yankees' Hideki Matsui. Last year, Carlson allowed six home runs, just one at Rogers Centre.

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 minor league rehab assignment April 27, and he could be back with the Blue Jays around May 22.

LHP Ricky Romero (strained right oblique muscle) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 20. He began a rehab assignment with Class A Dunedin on May 8, and he pitched for Class AA New Hampshire on May 13.

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, and he could return to the Blue Jays in mid-May.

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 experienced discomfort while throwing on April 25, pushing his possible return into June.

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. He might be able to return in August.
