Melky Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer Friday against the Orioles.
It was Cabrera's second home run of the season. The 28-year-old outfielder has been playing through some leg issues this month, but it hasn't affected his performance at the plate. He's hitting .360 over his last 19 games.
Brett Lawrie was ejected from Friday's game against the Orioles after objecting to a called third strike.
Lawrie slammed his batting helmet and threw his batting gloves before getting tossed. Lawrie had launched a solo homer in his other at-bat in the game, perhaps some of the frustration came from the 9-3 deficit that his team was facing in only the third inning. He'll watch the rest of the game from the clubhouse.
Blue Jays transferred LHP J.A. Happ from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
Happ was hoping to make it back by mid-June, but he now won't be eligible to return until early July. The left-hander is coming back from a small fracture behind his left ear as well as a sprained right knee.
Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Sean Nolin from Double-A New Hampshire.
Nolin will make his major league debut on Friday against the Orioles. A sixth-round pick in 2010, he has posted a 1.17 ERA and 16/5 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings this season at the Double-A level. The southpaw is worth a look in deeper AL-only formats.
Steve Delabar's first full season in Canada is going swimmingly, as he's 3-1 with a 1.80 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over 25 innings for the Jays.
Acquired from the Mariners for Eric Thames at last year's trade deadline, Delabar has been excellent since he stepped off the plane. The 29-year-old pitched in independent league ball from 2008-09, missed the 2010 season due to an elbow injury and spent most of 2011 in the minors. Delabar's amazing story includes a 3.21 ERA in 98 innings since his September 2011 debut.
Aaron Loup has been a bright spot in Toronto's bullpen, tallying a 2.55 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 24 2/3 innings.
Over the past two years, he's given the Jays a 2.60 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over 55 1/3 innings. Toronto doesn't trust him much in high-leverage situations, however, which is why he only has four holds in 2013 and 10 in his career.
Darren Oliver said Thursday that he's been dealing with a sore pitching shoulder for the last 7-10 days.
Oliver has allowed a run in each of his last two appearances. When asked if he might need a DL stint, the lefty didn't dismiss the possibility. "I don't know," he said. "I'm sure we'll talk about it at some point." Consider him day-to-day for now.
