Blue Jays’ Janssen To Start Season On DL


The Blue Jays have placed closer Casey Janssen on the 15-day disabled list due to a strain in his left abdominal area and lower back.

Janssen, 4-1 with 34 saves and a 2.56 ERA last year, was limited at spring training because of shoulder soreness.

Right-hander Sergio Santos will assume the closer’s role during Janssen’s absence.
