The Toronto Blue Jays have placed veteran left-handed reliever Darren Oliver on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19th, with a strained left shoulder. Taking his spot on the active roster will be left-handed starter Sean Nolin who will get his first major league start of his career against the Baltimore Orioles Friday night. Nolin, who was pitching for Toronto’s Double-A New Hampshire farm club has been stellar this year at Double-A, sporting a 1.17 earned run average. Look for Oliver to return before too long.
