Danner made his Double-A debut earlier in May and has recorded a 3.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 16 strikeouts over nine innings.

Blue Jays' Hagen Danner: Cleared for Double-A debut
Double-A New Hampshire reinstated Danner (forearm) from its 7-day injured list Wednesday.
The 24-year-old reliever was sidelined for just under a month to begin the season due to right forearm inflammation.

Blue Jays' Hagen Danner: Makes first rehab appearance
Danner (forearm), who has resided on Double-A New Hampshire's 7-day injured list since April 6, made a rehab outing with Single-A Dunedin on Thursday. He struck out two and allowed one run on one hit and two walks over one inning.
Danner also threw two wild pitches in the appearance and ultimately needed 30 pitches just to record three outs. Some rustiness was to be expected after he had been sidelined since early March with right forearm inflammation, so the 24-year-old could stick around with Dunedin for another appearance or two before moving up to New Hampshire....

Blue Jays' Hagen Danner: Optioned to minor-league camp
Danner (forearm) was optioned to minor-league camp by the Blue Jays on Monday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Danner was a longshot to make the roster anyway, but the inflammation in his right forearm made it all but a guarantee that he'd open the year in the minors. The 2017 second-round pick could be a bullpen option for the Jays at some point over the summer once healthy.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hagen Danner: Dealing with forearm inflammation
Danner is battling right forearm inflammation and won't throw for the next few days, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
Danner's injury isn't considered serious enough to require an MRI, but it will nonetheless cost him some time this spring. Danner converted from catcher to reliever prior to the 2021 season and recorded a 2.02 ERA across 35.2 innings for High-A Vancouver that year, but injuries limited him to just four appearances last season....

Blue Jays' Hagen Danner: Sent to minor-league camp
The Blue Jays optioned Danner to their minor-league camp Monday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
The 23-year-old was viewed as a potential two-way prospect when Toronto drafted him in the second round of the 2017 first-year player draft, but he's since made the full-time switch to pitching after enduring injuries and struggling to keep his strikeouts in check while playing catcher over his first three years in the minors. Danner turned heads while operating as a reliever at High-A Vancouver in 2021, holding opposing batters to a .171 average while registering a 2.02 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 42:12 K:BB in 35.2 innings. The right-hander will likely open the 2022 campaign at Double-A New Hampshire or Triple-A Buffalo.... See More ... See Less
