I’m in the middle of a post, which is already far too much to ask of me on the Sunday of long weekend, so I’ll make this brief:
Per a tweet from the Jays, Steve Delabar has been placed on the 15-day DL with right shoulder inflamation.
Welp. Sometimes you eat the Delabar…
Barry Davis follows it up with this detail:
With Delabar on the DL, JA Happ is expected to join the #bluejays in Seattle to take his spot on roster. Bullpen back to 8 men

So… there’s that.
Phantom injury to clear a roster spot? I don’t tend to think that’s the case nearly as often as fans want to believe, but on the other hand, with the way the Jays’ bullpen has been worked this year, I’m sure that everybody’s barking pretty good, and most of them could find cause to be given some downtime, baby, to put it together.
So… yeah. I guess that’s it. Now feel free to go back to making insane comments about how awful this team is, how they need to trade Bautista or completely start over using the Rays model, or whatever completely not-constructive or realistic nonsense you feel you need to get off your chest.
