SEATTLE (AP) - After three months out of the Toronto Blue Jays rotation, J.A. Happ is ready to make his return.
Happ spoke Tuesday before Toronto's game against Seattle. He'll make his first start for the Blue Jays since May 7 on Wednesday when Toronto closes out a three-game series against Seattle.
Happ suffered a skull fracture and a sprained right knee when he fell to the ground in pain after being struck behind the left ear by a liner off the bat of Tampa Bay's Desmond Jennings on May 7. Happ left the field on the stretcher and spent the night in hospital.
Happ said the head injury he could have pitched through. What delayed his return to the rotation was the knee injury where he strained a pair of ligaments.
