News: Jenkins was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, SportsNet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.
Impact: The Blue Jays continue to shake up the bullpen, this time recalling Ryan Tepera from Triple-A. Jenkins is in his final option year, and could be coming and going all summer as the Jays' needs require.

News: Jenkins was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.
Impact: Jenkins will replace Scott Copeland as the Jays' long reliever, which could eventually lead to some spot starts. While he doesn't walk many batters and had a fantastic groundball rate (57.3%) over 31.2 big league innings last season, Jenkins has never been able to pile up strikeouts. His K/9 marks have consistently been poor in the upper levels of the minors.

News: Jenkins was reassigned to minor league camp Wednesday, John Lott of the National Post reports.
Impact: Jenkins had a horrible spring, giving up eight earned runs and 12 hits including two home runs across 6.2 innings. Jenkins split his time between Triple-A Buffalo and Toronto last season, posting very solid numbers in the majors. He held a 2.56 ERA across 31.2 innings last season with 18 strikeouts with the Blue Jays, but after breaking his hand in batting practice last season, couldn't regain his form.
