TORONTO – The Toronto Blue Jays moved pitcher J.A. Happ to the 60-day disabled list Friday as the left-hander recovers from injuries after being hit in the head by a line drive earlier this month.
Happ suffered a skull fracture and a sprained right knee when he fell to the ground in pain after being struck behind the left ear by a liner off the bat of Tampa Bay’s Desmond Jennings on May 7.
Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons said the decision to move Happ from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL was not due to a setback in the rehabilitation process but because Happ’s knee is still sore.
