HAPP RETURNS: Toronto pitcher J.A. Happ, who was hit in the head by a Desmond Jennings line drive Tuesday night, was back at Tropicana Field Wednesday.  Happ said he suffered a small skull fracture and laceration behind his left ear, but that neither was considered serious.  He also hurt his knee in the fall, however doctors have yet to determine the severity of that injury.

Happ was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.
