TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays reinstated left-hander J.A. Happ from the disabled list Tuesday and optioned reliever Dominic Leone to triple-A Buffalo.
Happ spent six weeks on the DL due to a left elbow injury. He was scheduled to start for the Blue Jays on Tuesday night against the Cincinnati Reds.
The 34-year-old southpaw was 0-3 with a 4.50 earned-run average before going on the disabled list.
Happ was 20-4 last season with a 3.18 ERA over 195 innings pitched. He finished sixth in American League Cy Young Award voting.
Leone was 1-0 with a 4.01 ERA over 21 appearances with the Blue Jays this season.
