The Toronto Blue Jays are expecting to lose the services of J.A. Happ for at least one start, but the overall diagnosis of his left elbow injury suffered Sunday appears optimistic.

An MRI conducted Monday revealed inflammation but no structural damage, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, who adds that Happ is still expected to be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

The news comes one day after president Mark Shapiro acknowledged that the team was pleased with the initial tests, and that they did not believe Happ would miss significant time.

"We're still putting all the pieces together on Happ, but I can tell you we're incredibly optimistic," Shapiro said at a Pitch Talks event in Toronto.

Happ, who finished sixth in Cy Young voting last season, is 0-3 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 16 innings.
