Josh Johnson‘s recovery from a strained triceps has been delayed several times by setbacks, but the right-hander is off the disabled list and back in the Blue Jays’ rotation.

Johnson has been on the DL since April 21 and got knocked around in his final rehab start, allowing six runs in 4.2 innings at Triple-A last week. He also had a 6.86 ERA in four starts before being shut down, so Johnson struggling initially shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Toronto also activated outfielder Rajai Davis, who’s been out since May 10 with a strained oblique. Ramon Ortiz was placed on the DL after injuring his elbow Sunday.

    Good to see them back and I am glad that they are keeping Gose around for now. They could have used another bat to pinch hit in Atlanta and San Diego. The Jays have 2 days off this week but will probably recall Jenkins to pitch once they need another starter.

      The American league hitters are very happy to see that Josh Johnson will be back serving up BP. I am going to miss Russ Ortiz, i felt he had lots of upside and i would love to see him stay with the jays for many years to come.Gose is fool’s gold, he has a whopping 22 at bats this year and PC is acting like thats a decent sample size, the truth of the matter is he is a strikeout machine, just check what he did last year. I hope he starts playing everyday ASAP for the jays
