News
Following Monday's complete-game shutout against the White Sox, Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison has a 2.36 ERA and .220 opponents' batting average in his last four starts. It's been a nice turnaround after he posted an 8.88 ERA and .327 opponents' batting average in his previous five starts.

"It started with my fastball command that night (in Houston on May 14)," Hutchison said, per Sportsnet.ca. "I was able to hit down and away real consistent and then the last three innings that game I found my slider, and I feel like I’ve done a good job of repeating that and making good pitches and executing quality pitches in the zone, not just falling behind and throwing pitches in the zone.

"There’s a difference, and I feel like I’ve done a better job of that lately."

Injuries
Hamstring - 15-day DL. On Triple-A rehab assignment (Updated - 5/26/15)
News
Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro went 1 for 3 with a double in his first rehab outing on Tuesday. The veteran caught seven innings for Triple-A Buffalo, according to the Bisons TV/Radio announcer. Navarro has been on the disabled list with a hamstring injury since the end of April.

"He's progressing, it was a pretty good injury," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "Originally we didn't think it was much but it turned out [otherwise]. Those things can be a little bit dicey, especially for a catcher, he's doing all that squatting up and down, up and down."

Once he's ready to come off of the DL, Navarro will likely replace Josh Thole as the backup to Russell Martin.

Rookie starter Aaron Sanchez ended a two-game slide, pitching 6 2/3 solid innings of work as the Blue Jays beat the Mariners 8-2 on Sunday. 

Sanchez, who improved to 4-4 on the season, scattered seven hits but allowed just two runs to help Toronto avert a sweep. He struck out four and walked just two. Sanchez pitched into the seventh inning for his second straight start and dropped his ERA to 3.98. 

"He's settling in," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "He's got the appearance of starting to figure this out."

Gibbons believes he will hold onto his rotation spot, according to MLB.com.

"It wasn't like it was an automatic thing that was going to happen, because a lot of us felt, too, that in time he was going to pick it up, anyway. He should, he's too good, too talented. Yeah, I think you can probably eliminate that right now," Gibbons said.

Groin - Questionable for May 29 at Minnesota (Updated - 5/27/15)
News
Blue Jays infielder Steve Tolleson was unavailable for Wednesday's game due to a tweaked groin, according to ESPN.com. 

Tolleson was lifted in the sixth inning of Tuesday's game, though no injury was initially reported. The injury to Tolleson required Russell Martin, who originally came up as an infielder, to play a couple of innings at second base on Wednesday. It was just the second time in his career that Martin played at second. 

The team has not provided an update on Tolleson's status for Friday's game in Minnesota.

News
Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin saw two innings at second base on Wednesday, the second time in his career he's manned the postition, MLB.com reports.

"We had talked about it a couple of weeks ago," Martin said of his conversations with manager John Gibbons about playing second. "We had another situation where we were a little bit short on the bench. I always knew that it was a possibility, and I think he even asked me a couple of days ago, too, in a situation kind of like that. So, it wasn't really that much of a surprise, and I know I can play in the field. I played there for a long time, so I've had plenty of reps over there and it's kind of like riding a bike. Once you get out there, just play the game."

Martin played the first eight innings of the game behind the plate but shifted to second base after Ryan Goins was removed for a pinch-hitter. He went 2 for 5 and scored a run in his team's 5-3, 10-inning loss to the White Sox.

Shoulder - 15-day DL. Expected to begin rehab assignment May 30-31 (Updated - 5/26/15)
News
Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis fielded ground balls on Wednesday as he continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury. Travis has been on the disabled list since May 21, and is hopeful to return when first eligible. 

The next step for Travis is to swing a bat, according to Sportsnet. Manager John Gibbons said Travis isn't "too far off" in his recovery, and a rehab assignment could start this weekend

The rookie second baseman is eligible to come off of the DL on Monday, but may not be quite ready by then. He received a cortisone shot last week, and started to see some progress Tuesday.

"The first few days were pretty sore," Travis said, per MLB.com. "I guess after the shot I was like, 'Man, this shot made it worse.' The doctor said that's normal, though. They get that shot pretty deep down in there. The first couple of days are sore, and yesterday was really like the first day where I started feeling good again.

"I feel much better," Travis said. "Every day since I got the shot has been much better. That's what we're shooting for. Literally, every day there has been a noticeable difference."

When he comes back, the rookie second baseman will pick up a modest four-game hitting streak and a .271 season batting average.

Josh Donaldson did it again. For the second straight game, the Blue Jays third baseman blasted a ninth-inning home run off White Sox closer David Robertson. This time, the solo home run tied the game at three, but the White Sox would come back to win in the 10th inning.

"Cutter, just this one was a little bit up," Donaldson said of the pitch from Robertson that led to the game-tying homer, per MLB.com. "From my at-bat earlier, I hit a fly ball to right field that I thought I hit pretty well, and I figured I should try and pull it."

The home run, Donaldson's 13th of the season, was his only hit of the game. He now has eight hits over his last five games as his season average sits at .314.

The double was his only hit in four at-bats during the game. Reyes missed nearly a month with a fractured rib.

"It's OK, I've been swinging the bat for like two weeks now, at least BP-ing and stuff like that," Reyes said. "The more ABs I take, the more comfortable I'm going to feel. I'm not going to promise anything like I'm going to go 5-for-5 out of the gate, I hope so, but it's going to take a little bit of time. I feel very comfortable about it. I'll be working on my swing, too."
