|Brandon Morrow set to throw live BP on Saturday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/23/14) Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow is set to throw live batting practice Saturday for the first time since sustaining a right index finger injury in late April. John Gibbons told MLB.com that he plans on seeing Morrow back in game action in September.
Morrow, who remains on the 60-day disabled list, would join the Toronto bullpen since there would not be enough time to build up his arm strength for a starting role.

(7/28/14) Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow (finger) is in Florida continuing his throwing program, according to Sportsnet.ca. He has been throwing bullpens every other day and could return to the team as a reliever, if needed. Manager John Gibbons indicated that he could be back from the disabled list as early as September.
|Brandon Morrow throws off mound Thursday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/24/14) Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow threw off the mound Thursday for the first time since tearing a tendon sheath in his index finger May 2, according to Sportsnet.ca. Morrow is expected to throw bullpens every other day.
"It was good," Morrow said of the session. "I still had the tape job on my finger so it’s not completely there, but the bullpen was fine. With just this little tape here I feel pretty free with my finger so I was able to loosely go through my mechanics and feel the slope of the mound and everything was pretty good.
"Everything has been positive. Real slow, but always going in the right direction. I felt better with my command and just going through my mechanics than I thought I would (on the mound). My finger felt pretty good, so I was encouraged by it."
|Brandon Morrow's 2013 was cut short after just 10 starts, as a forearm issue became a nerve problem -- one which still may require surgery. Morrow can be great when he's healthy -- as we saw in 2012, as he sported a 2.96 ERA and 1.12 WHIP -- but his status in 2014 is still up in the air, and even a slight tweak could send him back to team doctors and lead to an eventual surgery. Morrow has just one season with a sub-4.00 ERA since he became a full-time starter in 2010. It's also difficult to tell if he's a strikeout pitcher (10.5 K/9 in 2010 and 2011) or not (7.5 K/9 in 2012 and 2013). He's best left for a speculative play at the end of most drafts this season.
