It’s been nearly three weeks since Sergio Santos guessed that he was about two weeks from coming off the disabled list, but the Blue Jays’ closer hasn’t made a ton of progress with his shoulder injury since then.

In fact, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that Santos has yet to throw off a mound and speculates that he will be “out for at least the next three weeks.”

Santos, who’s been out since April 21, explained that the up-and-down nature of his recovery process has been “a little frustrating” but added that he’s finally feeling significant improvement.

Veteran closer Francisco Cordero was a flop filling in for Santos, but Casey Janssen has converted all three of his save chances and thrown five straight scoreless innings since taking over for Cordero.

    Mighty Casey has been just fine. Santos may not get his old job back when he returns. Cordero has also pitched much better lately.
