So we have good news and bad news on the injury front today.
Bad news, Dioner Navarro has a tear, not just a hamstring strain. He'll be out longer than first thought.
On the good side, Jose Bautista's shoulder feels a lot better today and he'll 'try swinging a bat' tomorrow. He could be back in a DH role within a few days. And more good news, Michael Saunders will, most likely, be joining the Jays at some point during their weekend series in Tampa.
Other news, Gibby says Josh Thole will catch R.A. Dickey on Friday, mostly because the Jays will be flying through the night to get to Tampa, landing at about 4 am. In the future, either Martin or Thole could catch Dickey depending on 'matchups'.
Buck Showalter has moved Travis Snider to the DH spot, which is unfortunate, Snider playing RF has given us a lot of entertainment value.

Remember we have rules here. Mostly don't be terrible (it seems like a small thing to ask). No arguing with the Mods, you have a problem, email me, but in the thread, let's not debate rules.
