|Blue Jays hope to have Brandon Morrow back in September |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(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 |

(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."
|Blue Jays hope to use Brandon Morrow 'in some capacity' |

(7/21/14) Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said he'd like to use starting pitcher Brandon Morrow "in some capacity" this season, reports MLB.com. On the 60-day disabled list with a torn tendon sheath in his right index finger, Morrow will continue his rehab this weekend at the team's training complex in Florida, the report said.
Morrow threw off flat ground Friday. It's unclear when he'll return, or how he'll be used when he does. Morrow went 1-2 with a 5.93 ERA in six starts before going on the DL.
|Brandon Morrow to throw off flat ground Friday |

(7/18/14) Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow will throw off flat ground Friday, according to Sportsnet.
Morrow is attempting to come back from a finger injury. He said the only way he would need surgery on his finger is if he tore his sheath again. Morrow will resume his rehab in Florida once the team goes on the road. It's unclear how he'll be used when he is ready to return to action.
|Brandon Morrow could miss another month |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/29/14) Blue Jays starting pitcher Brandon Morrow (finger) expects to be sidelined for another month, according to Sportsnet.ca.
"Tentatively, real tentatively, I guess first week of August for getting back in games would seem about right," Morrow said. "But based on how I’m doing, that could move up a few days or a week or maybe be pushed back a few days or a week. It’s not so cut and dry with something like this, it’s not that common so there’s not exactly known procedures and protocols."
Morrow continues to play catch from 60 feet.
"Everything feels good," he said. "I’m not really stressing it too much, but it’s felt strong all the way through. I haven’t had any problems or setbacks where I’ve had to take an extra day, so I’m happy with the way it’s gone -- as happy as you can be."
|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.
