Injury Troubles

The Toronto Blue Jays are playing good ball of late, but suffered a big blow today.

Their closer B.J Ryan, outfielder Reed Johnson and Troy Glaus where all announced injured today.

B.J will be out 4-6 weeks with a elbow strain, Johnson will be out until July as he will have surgery on his back and Troy Glaus was placed on the 15-day DL because of a sore heel.

Ryan will not be a huge issue as Jason Frasor will take his spot and Adam Lind will take Johnson's spot. Glaus' place will be the real trouble. It is unknown right now who will be the full time replacement for Glaus.

The Jays are leading their division right now, and will have to play inspired ball to keep it.
