NEW YORK - Blue Jays manager John Gibbons confirmed before Thursday's series finale against the Yankees that Melky Cabrera and Brandon Morrow won't return this season.

“I'm not sure we'll get Melky Cabrera at all,” said Gibbons.

The 29-year-old left fielder struggled all season with knee and hamstring problems. Cabrera was first on the disabled list from June 27-July 20 with tendinitis in his left knee.

His second trip to the DL, this time with meniscus trouble in his left knee, began on August 2.

As for Morrow, who's been down since June 1 with what was eventually diagnosed as an entrapped nerve in his right forearm, will not pitch again this year.

“No, no,” said Gibbons, when asked about the chances of Morrow returning.

The Blue Jays expect to have Colby Rasmus (strained left oblique,) Jose Bautista (bone bruise in left hip,) Steve Delabar (right shoulder inflammation) and Dustin McGowan (oblique) back at different times.

“Colby, he'll start baseball activities on Monday,” said Gibbons. “Hopefully that moves pretty quick. He's starting to feel a little bit better.”

Gibbons says he doesn't expect Bautista to be out much longer than his DL stint. Bautista's eligible to return in time for the Friday, September 6 game in Minnesota.

“We don't think it's anything beyond that,” said Gibbons.
