J.A. Happ diagnosed with elbow inflammation

Perennial MVP contender Josh Donaldson's recurring calf injury is a major problem for the Jays who need to get back on track in a hurry to save their season

Perennial MVP contender Josh Donaldson's recurring calf injury is a major problem for the Jays who need to get back on track in a hurry to save their season

Toronto (2-10) may try to flip Happ to a contender if it continues to struggle this season.

The Blue Jays' slump dropped them further in the Bleacher Report power rankings.

He had a rough Spring Training as well (6.75 ERA in 14 2/3 innings) but has been charged with just one earned run through his first nine frames in Buffalo and represents the most experienced depth option the Jays possess. Latos has pitched for five teams in the past two seasons, logging a combined 4.93 ERA in 186 1/3 innings between the Marlins, Dodgers, Angels, White Sox and Nationals.

We have good news and bad new on the Blue Jays injury front. Toronto will have to turn the likes of Casey Lawrence, Mat Latos or T.J. House in the absence of Happ and Sanchez. After starting the season in the seventh spot, the Blue Jays are now in 21st place after going 1-5 last week. This could be a great chance for the Blue Jays front office to gauge Latos' value to the organization and decide if he is worth keeping on the Major League Baseball roster. Though 34 years old, Happ has proven he's a late bloomer. Both appearances came as a reliever, so Lawrence will look to put in a solid performance in his more familiar role.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Happ's exit midway through Sunday's 11-4 loss to Baltimore gave everyone a scare.

The Blue Jays also provided an update on Sanchez's finger issue.
