Toronto placed closer Sergio Santos on the disabled list with a sore shoulder Saturday and he sought a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum in California, with an MRI exam yesterday showing no structural damage.
That’s the good news. The bad news, according to Vinnie Duber of MLB.com, is that Santos will be completely shut down for at least 10-14 days and only at that point will the Blue Jays “initiate the throwing program.”
In other words, don’t expect to see him closing games again for at least a month, leaving veteran closer Francisco Cordero plenty of time to rack up saves after signing with Toronto as a setup man.
