From the AP:

TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Blue Jays placed closer B.J. Ryan on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with an strained elbow, a day after he blew his second save in his last four chances.
Ryan, whose latest blown save came when he gave up four runs in the ninth inning of Saturday's 10-7 loss to Detroit, is to be examined by Dr. James Andrews in Alabama on Monday.

"We're going to be cautious about it," said Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi. "He hasn't felt comfortable for the last week or so."

The left-hander has two blown saves in five chances this year, after he blew only four saves in 42 opportunities last season. He is 0-2 with a 12.46 ERA so far this 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 to take Ryan's place on the roster. Vermilyea will be used as the long man out of the bullpen.

Think they're looking for a closer? I think Cormier is the perfect fit :D

That would explain his 12+ ERA so far...

Unfortunately for us Frasor will be just fine in the role for them
