The Toronto Blue Jays have activated RP Casey Janssen (back) from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, 2B Chris Getz has been designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Janssen will step into the closer's role right away, so activate him immediately in all leagues. RPs Aaron Loup and Steve Delabar will serve as set-up men, with RP Sergio Santos working in low-pressure situations for the foreseeable future.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (back) will rest for the next two days and then pitch again for Double-A New Hampshire Saturday, May 10. Janssen could be back with the team Sunday, May 11, or Monday, May 12.
Fantasy Tip: Aaron Loup and Brett Cecil have both earned saves since Sergio Santos was demoted from the ninth-inning role, but neither reliever is expected to have much of a shelf life with Janssen returning soon.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil pitched a scoreless inning for his second save of the season Monday, May 5.
Fantasy Tip: He was scheduled to face the bottom of the order, so this wasn't a matchup play against a left-handed hitter like Ryan Howard. Aaron Loup and Steve Delabar worked the seventh and eighth, which makes Cecil the one to target on waivers.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Sergio Santos has been removed from the closer role. RP Aaron Loup will serve as the closer Saturday, May 3.
Fantasy Tip: They are likely to go to a committee until Casey Janssen (back) returns and is ready to resume his role as closer. Brett Cecil and Steve Delabar could also figure into save chances. Cecil could have been the guy Saturday, but he threw two innings the previous day. He's a lefty, though, and may be a matchup pick in the committee. Cecil, Loup and Delabar are worth a pickup if you're in need of saves, but don't burn too many FAAB dollars on them as it's likely a short-term solution. Janssen is nearing a rehab assignment and could be installed as closer in a couple of weeks.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he likely will use RP Aaron Loup if there is a save situation Saturday, April 19, unless he needs to use him earlier in the game.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Aaron Loup has pitched well in Grapefruit League spring action, and he is considered a clear-cut favorite for one of the team's remaining two bullpen jobs heading into the regular season.

Toronto Blue Jays RPs Casey Janssen, Sergio Santos, Darren Oliver and Steve Delabar are all locks for the bullpen, and RP Esmil Rogers, who is out of options, is likely to have the fifth spot locked up. RPs Jeremy Jeffress, Brett Cecil, Aaron Loup and J.A. Happ will battle for the final two spots.
