Luis Perez RP TOR 5 Months
Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopopulos said Tuesday that Luis Perez (elbow) is "pretty far away" from resuming a minor league rehab assignment.
Perez was shut down after he felt pain in his surgically-repaired elbow during his first rehab appearance on June 10. The setback wasn't considered serious and he has resumed throwing, but there's no timetable for his return to game action.

Blue Jays placed LHP Luis Perez on the 60-day disabled list.
Perez was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow earlier this week and will miss the rest of the season. Tommy John surgery is likely the next step. Aaron Loup has been called up to take his place on the active roster.

The Blue Jays are not expected to consider Luis Perez for a starting role.
Perez started four games with Toronto in 2011. ''Because he hasn't been stretched out, we would go to others first,'' manager John Farrell said. ''He's become such a valuable member of the bullpen, I'd hate to take away from one strength when we might have other options that might be equal to him in the rotation.'' Toronto's other options include minor league pitchers Jesse Chavez, Joel Carreno, and Chad Jenkins.
