Blue Jays call up Chad Jenkins

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Shi Davidi is reporting that Chad Jenkins has been called up for the series against the Astros, no word on who is coming off the roster to make room for him, but Dan Johnson didn't look healthy after hitting the bag at first on a ground out, in the 9th inning of last night's game. I wouldn't be surprised if he was going on the DL. Of course, maybe Steve Tolleson's wife is going to have that baby.

Chad Jenkins has been up and down so often, I forget how many times it's been.  I think this is his 5th time he's been called up this year. He has a 3.72 ERA, in 15 games as a Blue Jay. In 19.1 innings he's allowed 20 hits, 2 home runs, 4 walks and has 10 strikeouts.

In Buffalo he has a 4.05 ERA in 18 games, 4 starts. In 40 innings, he's allowed 37 hits, 4 home runs, 9 walks with 23 strikeouts.

Welcome back Chad.

Update: Dan Johnson is hitting the DL. He really didn't look good last night.

And the Yankees claimed Esmil Rogers off waivers.

Lots of little bits of news, but no big trades like we've been waiting on.
