Toronto Blue Jays LHP J.A. HAPP is scheduled to make his next MLB injury rehabilitation start with the Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday, July 23 against the Columbus Clippers (7:05 p.m.).

Happ has been on the Blue Jays disabled list since May 8 after being hit in the head with a line drive in a start against the Tampa Bay Rays a night before. The southpaw has made a pair of rehab starts already, tossing three innings without allowing an earned run for rookie-level Gulf Coast League Blue Jays on July 13 (4 H, 2 R) and five scoreless innings for Single-A Dunedin on July 18 (3 H, 7 SO).

Happ was 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA in seven starts with the Blue Jays to begin the season. Acquired in a trade with the Astros in 2012, he was a combined 10-11 with a 4.79 ERA in 24 starts between Houston and Toronto last season.
