Shoemaker was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain.

Due to scheduled off days, the Blue Jays can operate with a four-man rotation for a while, next needing a fifth starter on May 4, although Shoemaker would be eligible to return as early as May 1. If Shoemaker's injury lingers well into May, Sean Reid-Foley could be an option to rejoin the big-league rotation.
