      By RotoWire Staff

      Axford (elbow) has advanced his throwing progression and is throwing from 90 feet without issues, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Axford hasn't pitched all season due to a stress reaction in his elbow. He's progressing toward a return to action, though it's not clear when the Blue Jays expect him to begin a rehab assignment.

    • Blue Jays' John Axford: Ends up back in Toronto
      By RotoWire Staff

      Axford (elbow) re-signed with the Blue Jays on a minor-league deal Monday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Reports suggested that such a move was coming soon after Axford was released Saturday, and the veteran will indeed be able to return to his hometown team. The release and re-signing allowed the Blue Jays to avoid paying the reliever a retention bonus, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports, but Axford was evidently happy enough to stay home despite that treatment. He's currently rehabbing from a stress reaction in his elbow and does not have a clear return date.
