It sounds like the injury-riddled Jays have dodged a bullet with this injury, as it remains to be seen if Happ will even land on the disabled list. Happ is 0-3 with a 4.50 ERA.

A portion of nail was removed from his right middle finger on Monday during a procedure performed by Dr. Glenn Goldstein in Kansas City. "The guys (Goldstein) has done it (to) have had no problem and it heals up pretty quick". Last season, he won 20 games for the first time in his career, going 20-4 with a 3.18 ERA, 1.169 WHIP and 163 strikeouts in 195.0 innings.

He was expected to resume throwing in the coming days.

Latos isn't on the 40-man roster, so his addition will require a corresponding 40-man roster move.

The Blue Jays recalled right-hander Danny Barnes and infielder Ty Kelly from Triple-A Buffalo. Tabbed by many as both a playoff team and a World Series contender, the Blue Jays have started the season with an abysmal 2-11 record. But you've got to put an end to it.

"Really the whole American League is too good. So we need to turn it around quickly, that's for sure".
