I just think it all depends on how conservative of an approach they want to take with him. Considering the amount of money they invested in him, I would say they will take their time with him. I am thinking best case scenario....2-3 Weeks, Most likely Month plus.

Just my opinion though, just seems like if he is flying down to see Andrews...a 15 day DL stint is the best you can hope for

Think back to pre BJRyan days when the Jays had a lousy bullpen/no closer.

JFrasor was more then a couple times given the ball to close and he was terrible.

I live in Toronto, follow the jays to a Tee & have absolutely no confidence in this guy!
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Yep. Frasor was so consistently effective that the Jays thought converting Miguel Batista to a closer was a good idea.

The waiting is killing me. Any idea when we'll have an update? I missed Frasor on the WW before he was picked up, and had to go with Benitez, far from the healthiest man in baseball!

BJ Ryan UPDATE

Postby tobias875 » Mon Apr 16, 2007 5:13 pm

per rotoworld:

The Blue Jays expect B.J. Ryan to miss 4-6 weeks due to a strained ligament in his left elbow.

Ryan avoids Tommy John surgery for now, but that still may be a possibility if he doesn't recover as hoped. Jason Frasor is set to occupy the closer's role in his absence. Shaun Marcum and Victor Zambrano are the fallbacks.

Just a little rant if I may:

Baseball injuries are insanely frusterating to deal with as a fan. Clubs will give blatant misinformation concerning injuries. I am not convinced that his "back" injury this spring is unrelated to this. Teams always seem to paint a picture that is most advantageous to them, not the player.

For instance, it is difficult to tell why a player was moved to the DL. Did the team need a roster spot? Were they trying to prove a point? You just don't know much of the time.

As a fantasy baseball player, my teams have suffered many injuries. Through the years, I have been frustrated because of how bizarre some of these cases are. A couple of examples: In Jose Reye's rookie season, team doctors cleared him to play. Reyes refused. He did not play for the rest of the year. In 2003, Randy Johnson was injured. The Diamondbacks severely 'miscalculated' when he would return. His return was "a couple of weeks away" for over two months.

Just venting... I hate waiting for information when it comes to a player that is as important to my team as BJ Ryan.

4-6 weeks according to rotoworld.


They think tommy john might be a necessity if he doesn't heal, so let's hope and pray.
