The Blue Jays gave John Gibbons a contract extension just last month and it's fair to ask why considering the star, but Ross Atkins and Mark Shapiro should be in the crosshairs too.

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher J.A Happ throws against the Baltimore Orioles in the first inning of a baseball game in Toronto on Sunday, April 16, 2017.

It sounds like the injury-riddled Jays have dodged a bullet with this injury, as it remains to be seen if Happ will even land on the disabled list. The Blue Jays' relief corps is also pathetic, averaging 5.22 ERA with one save in four chances.

A 20-game victor a year ago, Happ is 0-3 this season with a 4.50 earned-run average.

The Toronto Blue Jays announced Tuesday that starter Aaron Sanchez had undergone a "procedure" to remove part of a fingernail this week, a few days after he was placed on the disabled list to deal with a recurring blister issue. Happ hopes he will have better results than he has had so far this season, going is 0-3 with a 4.50 ERA.

Toronto will need to use triple-A callups this Friday and Saturday at Anaheim.

Infielder Ty Kelly was recalled from the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons in a corresponding move.

Toronto is off to a awful start with a record of 2-10 to begin the 2017 season. "I know people don't want to hear it, but it's very, very early". Not good news for a team that really needs to start scoring.
