TORONTO – The Blue Jays got one back but lost another.

On the day the club activated Casey Janssen from the 15-day disabled list, his return from a strained oblique that cost him the first six weeks of the regular season, it announced Sergio Santos would be placed on the disabled list on Monday with discomfort in his right forearm.

"Speaking to the doctor and everybody they think it's just a strain," said Santos. "Obviously we'll get an MRI at some point and kind of see what it is but I'm hoping it's just a strain and I can be back in two weeks."

Santos pitched 1 2/3 innings in Friday night's loss to the Angels. He felt the pull in the middle of his second inning of work.

"Frustrating I don't think begins to say what I'm feeling," said Santos. "I'll continue to do what the trainers and what the docs say and hopefully I can get back on the mound and hopefully it's nothing serious."

Forearm pain is sometimes equated with something much worse – an elbow injury.

"I don't want to speculate," said Santos.

Santos felt good enough to pick up a baseball before Sunday's game.

"If I keep progressing I think the way I have the past two days it shouldn't be too long," said Santos. "I played catch today and it felt okay."

The Blue Jays will make a corresponding roster move in time for Monday night's series finale with the Angels.
