TORONTO - The revolving door on the Toronto Blue Jays clubhouse has been spinning faster than a Las Vegas slot machine this month.

If you're thinking things will settle down, think again.

Wednesday's 15-4 Cleveland Indians victory over Toronto featured too many of those same-old, same-olds: a weak outing by a starting pitcher and then, just when it looked as if the Jays might make a late rally, more leaky bullpen work.

The Jays have made 13 player moves in the month of May alone, and it's barely two weeks old. Expect more as soon as Thursday because the potential for another abbreviated start by J.A. Happ is very real and the Jays bullpen has to be ready for extra work again in the series finale before they head out on the road for stops in Texas and Boston.

Dustin McGowan lasted just four innings as he continues to battle to find his rhythm and command. His performance, coupled with Indians' starter Corey Kluber's excellence early on, put the Jays down by four runs.
