News
Blue Jays starter Daniel Norris yielded one run on five hits and struck out seven in seven innings on Saturday but ended up with a no-decision against the Rays. 

Norris' only hiccup was a first-inning RBI double from Evan Longoria. 

"It was weird, something just clicked after the second inning, kind of felt back to normal," said Norris to MLB.com. "I think it was just trying to see how my arm was going to feel, and I was trying to, again, overcompensate with my body.

"Then coming out for the third, I just forced myself to stay back and almost kind of forced my arm to speed up back to normal, and sure enough it did. That was big for me."

Norris' next start is scheduled for Thursday in Cleveland.

News
Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison earned a win Thursday, allowing two earned runs on four htis in eight innings while striking out seven and walking none in his team's 7-6 victory over the Orioles.

"He really gave us what we needed," manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "I mean, we were fresh [in the bullpen], but we've been looking for that seven- or eight-inning start, that always helps everybody out."

Hutchison (2-0) was brilliant through the first five innings as his team built up a 7-0 lead. He then surrendered a solo home run in the sixth inning and another run on a fielder's choice in the seventh. The Orioles made a run in the ninth inning but fell just short of completing the comeback.

"I think you're just out there concentrating on one guy at a time," Hutchison said. "Maybe if you got deeper -- I haven't got deeper so I wouldn't know -- but I wasn't really thinking about [the perfect game]."

Hutchison owns a 5.48 ERA and 21:6 K:BB ratio in 23 innings over four starts. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox in Boston Wednesday.

Hamstring - 15-day DL. Out until at least early May (Updated - 4/23/15)
News
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters that an Dioner Navarro's MRI revealed a "real tear there," which is much worse than what the club expected, per Sportsnet.ca.

Navarro said he suffered the injury Tuesday while stretching a single into a double, MLB.com reports.

"I felt the pop right before I was going to slide into second base," Navarro said. "In the back of my mind I had the slightest hope it wouldn't be that bad, but I kind of knew. I've been through this before. I'll just go through my treatment and get back as soon as possible."

Navarro was placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to Thursday's game against the Orioles. He slashed  .267/.294/.333 with four RBI in eight games (seven starts).

Injuries
Knee - 60-day DL. Out for season (Updated - 4/7/15)
News
Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman likes to keep himself busy. 

As if rehabbing a torn ACL wasn't going to take up enough time, Stroman has decided to head back to Duke to work on finishing his degree. On May 4, he'll return to campus to rehab his knee and further his studies. 

"My parents pushed me from a very early age to make sure that it was all academics first," Stroman said, via MLB.com. "I was a kid who wasn't allowed out if I wasn't going to work, or I was the kid studying when everyone else was partying. That's something I always try to preach to everyone I'm around, even high school students now, I always try to gear them towards college."

Stroman played three seasons from 2010-2012 with the Blue Devils before entering the draft. The Blue Jays selected him with the 22nd overall pick, giving Duke its first-ever first-round pick in school history.

Stroman tore his ACL during spring training and decided to go back to Duke shortly after. He said he feels ahead of schedule in his recovery right now. 

Stroman went 11-6 with a 3.65 ERA last season.

News
Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes has been playing through rib soreness for more than a week. Unsure if it's a rib injury or an oblique strain, Reyes has dealt with the pain, although it prevents the switch hitter from batting left handed. 

Reyes is out of Sunday's lineup, but he told Sportsnet that it wasn't injury related--just a day off to rest. 

While Reyes said the injury isn't getting any worse, he'll still have an MRI when the team returns to Toronto after its current road trip.

Blue Jays pitcher Miguel Castro allowed one run on two hits in 1/3 of an inning in Toronto's 4-2 loss to the Rays Saturday.

It was just Castro's third run allowed this season in 9 2/3 innings. Manager John Gibbons knew he would eventually have a game like this, reports MLB.com.

"Let's be fair to the kid, he has been pretty (darn) good," Gibbons said. "He's a baby, he's done a good job, he's closed out some games for us. This is the big leagues, man.

"I like everything that he's done but he's going to give up hits every now and then. We're going to need outs from all guys out of the 'pen, we really do it. It's a young group for the most part and you're going to have your pains."

Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey had his worst start of the season during a 12-3 loss to the Rays on Friday. The veteran knuckleballer gave up eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits and one walk, while striking out zero batters in 4 2/3 innings.

Dickey (0-2) was pitching with a 2-0 lead when the Rays put up four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. James Loney and Rene Rivera each had a two-run homer.

The Rays then came back in the fifth inning with five more runs. The big hit was an RBI triple by Asdrubal Cabrera.

Dickey had allowed seven runs in 19 1/3 innings in his first three starts. His ERA jumped from 3.26 to 5.25. 

"I don't really have an answer. Sometimes it's the nature of the pitch," Dickey said of his performance, per the Toronto Sun. "I threw some really bad ones tonight that they hit. Sometimes those get popped up or not swung at. You give what you've got and some times it's great and some times you stink. Tonight I stunk."

He will make his next scheduled start Wednesday at Boston.
