Some injury updates tweeted by Gregor Chisholm of BlueJays.com...
@gregorMLB: Brett Lawrie is out of a walking boot but there is still no immediate timetable for his return. Still lots of rehab work to do.
@gregorMLB: From earlier, Johnson (blister) had his start pushed back yet another day. He'll now start Monday with Wang going on Sunday.
@gregorMLB: Morrow had a 40-pitch bullpen today, he's scheduled to pitch in a game on Monday. Gibbons wasn't sure if it was for Dunedin or a sim game.
@gregorMLB: Gibbons said that he thinks Morrow will need a max of two rehab starts. Reiterated that Reyes could be two weeks away.
@gregorMLB: Jose Reyes played two innings in a simulated game today. He did some sliding practice after the game, could play for Dunedin on Monday.
@gregorMLB: Sergio Santos threw long toss today. The plan is to throw a side on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
@gregorMLB: Drew Hutchison threw live BP today, his last live BP. Scheduled for a simulated game on Tuesday.
@gregorMLB: Kyle Drabek is done with live BPs. He's scheduled to pitch two innings of an intrasquad game early next week. #BlueJays
