Blue Jays' J.P. Howell: Takes loss in rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howell (shoulder) allowed an earned run on three hits and a walk on 22 pitches (two outs) while taking the loss in Friday's rehab outing with Triple-A Buffalo, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

In 1.2 rehab innings, the lefty has allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits, one walk and a hit batsman. Needless to say, his rehab stint isn't going much better than Howell's poor showing in 13 MLB games this season (8.31 ERA, 2.19 WHIP, .324 BAA and a 5:7 K:BB). Regardless, the offseason acquisition will likely return to the Jays in short order, but he's certainly lost his grip on high-leverage work.

Blue Jays' J.P. Howell: Starts rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howell (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

This is good news for the southpaw, as little had been revealed about his recovery process prior to this development. He's expected to pitch a few more outings with the Bisons, likely meaning he'll return to the Blue Jays' relief corps later in July.

Blue Jays' J.P. Howell: Placed on 10-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howell was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday, Gregor Chisolm of MLB.com reports.

Manager John Gibbons was vague on the injury, merely saying "It's all connected" when asked whether this injury was connected to a prior shoulder issue. It's safe to assume, given Howell's brutal 8.31 ERA and 2.19 WHIP, that the Blue Jays won't be rushing him back. That is, if he even has a job at all by the time he's healthy again.

Blue Jays' J.P. Howell: Falling short of expectations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howell's appeared in just four of Toronto's 22 contests in May.

Manager John Gibbon's early-month concerns regarding the left have resulted in minimum usage for Howell. The 34-year-old was signed in the offseason to ease the loss of Brett Cecil, but his contributions (9.64 ERA and 2.79 WHIP) have fallen extremely short of doing such.

Blue Jays' J.P. Howell: Not gaining favor with new manager
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howell's performance since returning from the DL has his manager, John Gibbons, concerned, Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star reports.

In three appearances since coming back from a shoulder injury, Howell has been ineffective at fulfilling his role as the Jays' go-to southpaw out of the bullpen. The 34-year-old gave up a home run in his first outing back, threw a wild pitch in his second appearance and issued a free pass in his most recent game. Howell -- who endured a rough 2016 campaign with the Dodgers -- has logged just 1.2 innings for his new team this year, allowing three runs on a few hits and three walks while failing to notch a strikeout through five games. He's also been tagged with a blown save and one loss over just 1.2 innings. The sample size is too small to make any conclusions, but the fact that Gibbons has already expressed concern is a bad sign.
