Janssen will be unavailable out of the bullpen Monday against the Red Sox, Blue Jays radio broadcaster Mike Wilner reports.

Janssen blew a save Saturday and nearly gave the game away Sunday before he was bailed out by Brett Cecil, but manager John Gibbons reiterated his support for the closer Monday. Instead, Janssen will just receive a rest due to his high workload of late, opening the door for either Cecil, Aaron Loup or Aaron Sanchez to pick up a save chance if one should materialize.

Janssen took his third blown save of the season, allowing three runs on four hits while retiring just two hitters in the Jays' 5-4 loss to Detroit on Friday night.

Uhe usually very reliable Janssen uses pinpoint control (he has walked just three all season) rather than overwhelming stuff to take out opposing hitters. He was throwing strikes again, but he wasn't locating them and the Tigers took advantage. He served up a lead-off double, then back-to-back home runs to relinquish a 4-2 lead before another double sent him to the showers. He's been a bit more vulnerable the past couple of weeks, but barring an undisclosed injury, he should still have plenty of job security.

Casey Janssen will be given the night off on Wednesday due to what's being called "general soreness."

Janssen missed most of spring training and all of April, so the Jays are thinking he's going through routine "early-season" soreness.

Toronto will play matchups in the later innings Wednesday.
