Cold9/20/2014 8:37:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen earned his 24th save Saturday.
Insight: He came in with one out in the ninth, and shut the door on New York. Janssen now owns a 4.22 ERA.
 
Cold8/8/2014 10:32:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen blew his third save of the season Friday against the Tigers.
Insight: Janssen entered with a 4-2 lead, but he allowed four hits, including two homers, and three runs. The right-hander has 18 saves in 21 chances this season, but he's been shaky over the past month (7.94 ERA, 15 hits and five home runs allowed in 11 1/3 innings since July 6).
 
7/19/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen wasn't available Saturday due to illness.
Insight: He believes he ate something bad over the All-Star break and has lost as much as seven pounds. Aaron Loup picked up Saturday's save.
 
Hot5/28/2014 4:50:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen isn't available Wednesday due to "general soreness," according to Shi Davidi of sportsnet.ca.
Insight: He was activated from the disabled list on May 11 after missing most of spring traing and the first six weeks of the season. The Blue Jays think this is routine soreness.
 
Hot5/25/2014 7:52:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen already has seven saves.
Insight: He was just activated from the disabled list on May 11 after missing the first six weeks of the season. The Jays have gone 11-2 in their last 13 games and handed Janssen a boatload of save chances in that span. He's converted all of them and hasn't allowed a run.
 
5/11/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: The Blue Jays have activated closer Casey Janssen from the 15-day DL.
Insight: Janssen needed a little over a month to recover from a back/oblique injury. The right-hander has converted 66-of-71 save opportunities over the last two seasons.

Description: Toronto could activate closer Casey Janssen from the disabled list on Sunday or Monday. SOURCE: John Lott, National Post
Insight: He's missed the last month with a strained oblique. Janssen finished tenth in the AL with 34 saves last season. Sergio Santos and Aaron Loup have been splitting closer duties in his absence.
 
5/6/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Jays closer Casey Janssen (oblique) resumed his rehab assignment Monday.
Insight: Janssen was shut down after suffering a setback in mid-April. He should take back the closer role soon after returning to Toronto. Sergio Santos was removed from the role last week in favor of Brett Cecil.

Description: Jays closer Casey Janssen has been shut down after experiencing a setback in his recovery from a strained lower back. SOURCE: Gregor Chisholm, MLB.com
Insight: Janssen had been on a rehab assignment with Single-A Dunedin. There's no timetable for his return.
 
4/9/2014 5:09:00 PM
Description: Toronto closer Casey Janssen (back strain) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, according to John Lott of the National Post.
Insight: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Janssen was impressive. He'll throw one more bullpen before moving on to rehab games and should be back next week, barring a setback. Sergio Santos has saved three games and struck out eight batters in 3 1/3 innings this season, but he's also allowed six baserunners and will likely go back to the eighth inning when Janssen returns.
 
3/30/2014 4:06:00 PM
Description: Toronto has placed closer Casey Janssen on the disabled list with a lower back strain.
Insight: He won't be eligible to return until April 13th. Sergio Santos (1-1, 1.75 ERA in 2013) will fill in at closer in the mean time.
 
3/18/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen (shoulder) threw live batting practice Tuesday, according to mlb.com.
Insight: Janssen was shut down a few weeks ago with shoulder tendinitis, and Tuesday was his final tuneup before returning to game action. He should pitch in a game on Friday unless he has a setback over the next two days. Janssen had a 2.56 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP and 34 saves in 36 chances last season.
 
3/3/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen will resume throwing later this week, according to Jayson Stark of espn.com.
Insight: Janssen was shut down on Saturday with shoulder tendinitis. He had a 2.56 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP and 34 saves in 36 chances last season. Either Sergio Santos or Steve Delabar would take over closing duties if Janssen went down, but right now the move to shut him down is considered precautionary.
 
10/31/2013 9:37:00 PM
Description: Jays closer Casey Janssen had his option picked up on Thursday. SOURCE: Sportsnet
Insight: It's worth $4 million. Janssen's 34 saves this season were a career-high and the highest total by a Toronto closer since B.J. Ryan in 2008.
 
3/25/2013 2:05:00 PM
Description: Toronto manager John Gibbons said Toronto closer Casey Janssen (shoulder) will be ready for Opening Day.
Insight: Janssen is closing for one of the most improved lineups in either league and should be a top source for saves. Sergio Santos would handle closing duties if Janssen isn't ready for Opening Day.
 
3/20/2013 8:19:00 PM
Description: Toronto closer Casey Janssen (shoulder) threw an inning in a minor league game Wednesday, facing five batters, and reported no lingering effects from his surgically repaired right shoulder, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.
Insight: Janssen is scheduled to appear in Toronto's game Friday against Boston and could be ready for the start of the season. Sergio Santos would handle closing duties if Janssen isn't ready for Opening Day.
 
2/25/2013 1:44:00 PM
Description: Toronto right-hander Casey Janssen is experiencing right shoulder discomfort and won't pitch for a few days, according to Ken Fidlin of the Toronto Sun.
Insight: Janssen is expected to begin the season as the team's closer after saving 22 games with a 2.54 ERA and 0.86 WHIP last season. However, is he's still hurting later this spring then fantasy owners will want to handcuff Sergio Santos who has proven he can also ably man the closer's role.
 
2/14/2013 2:38:00 PM
Description: Toronto right-hander Casey Janssen did his first mound work since November shoulder surgery, throwing a successful bullpen session Thursday afternoon. SOURCE: Shi Davidi, Sportsnet.ca
Insight: "I'm happy where I'm at and as long as I don't have a setback, I think I'm in a good spot," Janssen said, "Just stay the course." Janssen is expected to begin the season as the team's closer after saving 22 games with a 2.54 ERA and 0.86 WHIP last season. Toronto significantly upgraded its roster in the offseason and should provide plenty of save chances in 2013.
 
2/6/2013 11:32:00 AM
Description: Toronto right-hander Casey Janssen will begin the year as the Blue Jays closer, according to manager John Gibbons. Janssen saved 22 games with a 2.54 ERA and 0.864 WHIP in 62 appearances last season.
Insight: This is not unexpected news, just confirmation that Janssen, and not Sergio Santos, has the ninth inning job. Santos missed most of the 2012 season with a shoulder injury that required surgery after saving 30 ball games in 2011. If Santos is healthy it will give the Blue Jays a 1-2 punch in the bullpen.
 
5/12/2012 10:07:00 PM
Description: Casey Janssen picked up his second save of the season on Saturday.
Insight: Since taking over Toronto's closer role from Francisco Cordero, Janssen is 2-for-2 in save chances with two perfect innings. Sergio Santos will be back eventually to take back the role, but Janssen is worth owning until then.
