TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Blue Jays placed closer B.J. Ryan on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with an elbow injury, a day after he blew his second save in his last four chances.
Ryan, whose latest blown save came in Saturday's 10-7 loss to Detroit, is to be examined by Dr. James Andrews in Alabama on Monday.
The left-hander has two blown saves in five chances this year, after he blew only four saves in 42 opportunities last season.
Setup man Jason Frasor will take over in the closer's role. The Blue Jays called up right-hander Jamie Vermilyea from Triple-A Syracuse.
