Per Toronto Star scribe Brendan Kennedy's tweet, it appears that Toronto Blue Jays reliever Darren Oliver's shoulder woes have landed him on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19th: Case u missed, Darren Oliver added to 15-day DL (shoulder, retroactive to May 19), Happ moved to 60-day, Sean Nolin called up. #bluejays — Brendan Kennedy (@BKennedyStar) May 24, 2013 The typically steady and healthy 42 year old reliever was diagnosed with a left shoulder strain. It will be Oliver's first DL stint in over four years, when he was placed on the 15-day DL with a triceps strain as a member of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in April 2009. The indefatigable hurler currently holds a 2-1 record and a 3.18 ERA, 138 ERA+, and 5.8 K/9 in 17 innings over 17 appearances. While he recovers, starting pitching prospect Sean Nolin was called up from Class AA New Hampshire and will make his MLB debut tonight against the Baltimore Orioles. At the time of the promotion, Nolin was 2-0 with a 1.17 ERA in three starts for the Fisher Cats. In other Blue Jay lefty news, starter J.A. Happ has been transferred to the 60-day DL while he continues to recover from being hit in the head with a line drive earlier this month against the Tampa Bay Rays. Initially diagnosed as a head contusion, it was later found that Happ had suffered a skull fracture on the comebacker off of Desmond Jennings' bat. Happ is currently tied for second on the Blue Jays with Brandon Morrow with two wins. The Blue Jays, currently scuffling along with a 20-27 record, 8.5 games back from the AL East leading New York Yankees, will look for Nolin to be a shot in the arm for a starting rotation that has struggled beyond the efforts of knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
