Tuesday looms as a giant hurdle for relief pitcher Sergio Santos to leap.

In his first two season with the Blue Jays, Santos never made it past April 22 without being felled by a major injury.

In his first season with the Jays in 2012 after being acquired from the Chicago White Sox, Santos was placed on the disabled list April 22 with right shoulder inflammation, a condition that knocked him out for the remainder of the season. That season he made just six appearances and had two saves.
