Blue Jays' John Axford: Ends up back in Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' John Axford: Expected to re-sign with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford (elbow) is expected to re-sign with the Blue Jays, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Axford was released by the Blue Jays earlier in the week after being diagnosed with a stress reaction in his elbow. It's unclear how long the veteran will be sidelined; he'll continue to rehab with his hometown team until he's ready for game action.

John Axford: Released by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford was released by the Blue Jays on Saturday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

It's been a rough few days for Axford, who was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his elbow on Thursday and now released just two days later. The injury could make it difficult for him to secure his next contract.

Blue Jays' John Axford: Has stress reaction in elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford has a stress reaction in the olecranon of his right elbow, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Axford has been with the Blue Jays as a non-roster invitee, but he'll have to wait for his chance to crack the big-league roster. His exact timeline is unclear, but he's expected to open the year on the injured list.

Blue Jays' John Axford: Nursing elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said that Axford experienced elbow pain earlier this week and will be checked out by doctors Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Axford has been attending spring training as a non-roster invitee, but he was seemingly in good position to break camp as a member of the big-league bullpen. The injury suddenly puts him on shakier ground to crack the Opening Day roster, but the Blue Jays will await analysis of Axford's health from doctors before revealing whether he's merely day to day or dealing with a longer-term setback.
