The Toronto Blue Jays have activated right-handed reliever Sergio Santos from the 60-day disabled list.
Right-handed starter Brandon Morrow has been placed on the 60-day disabled list to make room on the 40-man roster. Morrow's season is effectively over after he was diagnosed with a nerve injury in his right forearm last week.
The Jays also announced Thursday that right-hander Dustin McGowan has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.
Santos appeared in five games, posting a 0-1 record with a 2.08 earned-run average before being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right triceps strain on April 14. He had surgery on this right elbow to remove bone spurs.

Toronto Blue Jays left fielder Melky Cabrera is headed back to the disabled list after just ten games. MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports Cabrera's injury as similar to what put him out of action in June for approximately a month.

Has left-hander Mark Buehrle become the new ace of the Blue Jays starting rotation? If so it has likely been by default as the 12-year veteran ran his record to 7-7 with a 5-0 victory over the A’s at the Coliseum on Tuesday night.

This is a moment Melky Cabrera would probably like to have back.
During the third inning of Thursday night’s Blue Jays-Angels game, Erick Aybar hit a single to Cabrera in left. Ordinarily, this would be common practice for Cabrera, who would simply pick the ball up and fire it to the cutoff man. But this was nothing close to ordinary.
Cabrera indeed picked the ball up. He wound...

Over the course of an unusual 5-2 Wedneday matinee win at the Coliseum the Jays played the first six innings as if they had never before seen the sun.
The no-decision for starter R.A. Dickey was partially the result of the high sky and four fielding errors leaving with the game tied at twos. But in halting stumbling fashion the Jays captured the rubber game of the series vs. the...
