Worth noting

• Blue Jays left-hander Brett Cecil will be activated off the 15-day disabled list for Friday night's game in Oakland. Cecil hasn't pitched in the big leagues since he aggravated a groin injury on June 18 in New York. Cecil recently made a pair of relief appearances for Triple-A Buffalo and allowed one run over two innings.
