Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is optimistic he'll have two key pieces back from the disabled list at some point next week, but knows it's not a guarantee.

"I couldn't tell you when they're going to play," Gibbons said of Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com. "Hopefully, next homestand. Hopefully, at the beginning of the homestand, but that's just guessing. Guessing and hoping."

Both Donaldson and Tulowitzki are rehabbing their respective injuries in Florida but remain without a timetable. Donaldson has been out with a calf injury since April 13, while Tulowitzki strained his right hamstring April 21.

The Blue Jays sit at the bottom of the American league East standings at 9-19, and are in desperate need of the duo's return.

Toronto plays one more game in New York on Wednesday before traveling to Tampa Bay for a three-game series with the Rays that begins Friday. The team returns home Monday for a nine-game homestand.
