TORONTO - Sergio Santos, whose availability to the Blue Jays has been a rarity since he was acquired from the White Sox in December, 2011, will undergo elbow surgery this week. The club is calling it a "minor" procedure to clean out "loose bodies" and shave down bone spurs. Santos is expected to miss another six weeks. "Its something that a lot of players have; they have loose bodies in their elbow; a lot of players have bone spurs in their elbow," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "You only really take them out of shave them down if theres any type of discomfort." Santos last pitched for the Blue Jays on April 13 in Kansas City. Days later he was placed on the disabled list with a triceps strain. An MRI taken at the time showed the fragments in his elbow. He made two appearances in extended spring training, one each on Thursday and Saturday. Santos reported discomfort after the Saturday outing, prompting the decision to have surgery. Provided the procedure goes according to plan, its expected Santos will be able to begin throwing within a week. "It was something we were going to have done in the offseason," said Anthopoulos. "Because hes a one inning reliever, six weeks, up in Toronto, he could be back at that time." In five appearances this season, Santos is 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA. He has appeared in only 11 games in a Blue Jays uniform since the beginning of last year. BRANDON MORROW RESCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY Brandon Morrow, who last pitched on May 5 against Seattle, is ready to return from a back strain. It just wont be on Wednesday, as previously thought. "It was not my decision to do that," said Morrow. "Theyre being extra cautious, taking the extra couple of days. It also allows me to get a full bullpen in (Wednesday) at a higher intensity than I threw last time." Theres also the matter of Saturdays opponent: New York at Yankee Stadium. Manager John Gibbons has the best of his healthy pitchers prepared to start in that series. Mark Buehrle will pitch on Friday, Morrow on Saturday and on Sunday itll be knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Veteran Ramon Ortiz, who allowed one run in five innings of work last Friday in Boston, will make Wednesdays start against the Giants. CABRERA TO UNDERGO MRI Melky Cabrera, who went 4-5 in Tuesday nights 10-6 win over the Giants, will undergo an MRI on Wednesday. Cabrera, 28, has been playing with pain in both hamstrings since the end of spring training, noticeable when he runs the bases. His left hamstring is the worse of the two. "Hes going to play, he wanted to play," said third base coach Luis Rivera, translating for Cabrera. "He knows that his legs are a little tight but he wants to be on the field." The Blue Jays hope the imaging helps the club chart a better course of treatment for Cabrera, whos played in every game so far this seas Vans Shoes Outlet .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee.

ATLANTA -- Justin Thomas is still a bit miffed about last season.He doesnt want to go through it again, thats for sure.Its no fun, said Georgia Techs senior quarterback. Im pretty sure a lot of us never experienced anything like that before. It was a learning experience. You cant take winning for granted.A year ago, Thomas was still riding high after leading the Yellow Jackets to a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game and an Orange Bowl victory over Mississippi State. He was being touted as one of the most dynamic players in the country, an undersized but unique talent in coach Paul Johnsons option offense.Some pundits were even throwing around the idea of Thomas contending for the Heisman Trophy.That all fell apart when Georgia Tech collapsed to a 3-9 record, its worst mark in more than two decades. The Yellow Jackets managed only one win in the ACC, a stunning upset of Florida State that showed the teams tantalizing potential but did little to ease the sting of such a disappointing year.Now, heading into his final season, Thomas is determined to go out with a more worthy showing. The Yellow Jackets open the season Saturday against ACC rival Boston College in Dublin, Ireland, which marks the first trip out of the country for the quarterback and many of his teammates.This isnt a sightseeing trip, however.Im ready to go. Im ready to play, Thomas said, his voice rising. That wasnt no fluke (in 2014). What you saw two years ago is who I am. I plan on showing that again.His teammates have sure noticed a difference in the signal-caller, who had always been a bit soft-spoken, preferring to let his performance on the field do his talking.Not any longer.Its almost shocking, receiver Ricky Jeune said. Hes such a mellow dude. But its nice seeing JT step up, and really speak up and getting the team together. Hes always been pushing me, but now Im like, `All right, Ive definitely got to do this because Justins going to be on my case.Surrounded last season by inexperienced players at running back and receiver, and plagued by a leaky offensive line that didnt provide much protection, Thomass looked like a one-man show at times.dddddddddddd He took the weight of the team on his shoulders, his bravery and toughness never in question but the results a far cry from the previous year.We had a lot of new faces on the team, he said. At the same time, they didnt know what to expect. They were coming to this big, hyped team. They thought it came easy. Now we know we have to go back to the lab.Thomas rushing yards plunged from 1,086 to 488, while his average per carry dipped from 5.7 to 3.4. While passing was never his forte in the run-oriented offense, there was a dramatic drop-off as his completion percentage went from 51.3 to 41.7. His yards and touchdowns through the air also took a downward turn. His interceptions went up.When things in front of him broke down, which happened often, he often resorted to hurried, desperation throws that had little chance of being caught, at least by the Yellow Jackets.Thats been a focus during the offseason.Just trying to stay calm in the pocket, Thomas said. Not be so antsy.Of course, the Yellow Jackets are known for their running game.Thomas expects the triple-option to return to its devastating form, now that he can rely on myriad players with a year under their belts. Plus, the Yellow Jackets have added some new weapons on offense. B-back Dedrick Mills will be the first true freshman to start his first game at Georgia Tech since 2008, Johnsons debut season as coach. Former Georgia running back J.J. Green, who sat out last season after transferring to the Yellow Jackets, figures to get plenty of playing time at A-back.Everybodys locked in, Thomas said. Theres no questions or hesitation. Everybody is playing fast. At this point last year, we were still learning. Now were not. Were just going out there and playing and having fun.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
