"He feels great, did well, no problems at all," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. "He'll be activated tomorrow."
The 42-year-old lefty could have been activated for Sunday's finale against the Rangers, but after Saturday's 18-inning marathon in which the Blue Jays exhausted their entire bullpen, the club recalled Thad Weber from Triple-A Buffalo to provide some long-inning insurance. Toronto optioned Brad Lincoln to Buffalo after Saturday's game.
"It's just one of those things that worked out for us to give [Oliver] another day of rest," Anthopoulos said.
Although brief, this marks Weber's third stint with a big league club this season and his second with Toronto. He threw a scoreless ninth in Sunday's 6-4 loss, making his fifth appearance for the Blue Jays after pitching in three games for San Diego earlier this season.
