by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Brandon Morrow throws off mound Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) 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'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) 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
(6/29/2014) 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 should receive throwing schedule soon


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow threw 25 times from 60 feet Tuesday, and is ready to receive a full throwing program schedule, he told SportsNet.ca.

Morros, who is recovering from a torn tendon sheath in his right index finger, began throwing with a brace on the finger of the last few days. He could receive a timetable to return later Tuesday, and remains hopeful he can avoid surgery.  


Brandon Morrow to throw for first time Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow will begin throwing for the first time since early May Friday, reports MLB.com.

Morrow, who is recovering from a torn tendon sheath in his right index finger, will start out with light catch. He is trying to rehab the injury rather than undergo surgery, so his progress could be slow. He is expected to be out until at least the All-Star break. 


Brandon Morrow's finger won't require surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) The Blue Jays appear to have a dodged a bullet with pitcher Brandon Morrow's finger injury, as he is not expected to require surgery on the finger.

Morrow was spotted with a large splint on his right hand Tuesday, after being placed on the 60-day disabled list with a torn tendon sheath in his index finger. Fortunately, he likely will not undergo surgery, which should hasten his return to action.

"From what I was told that wasn't going to be needed," general manager Alex Anthopoulos told MLB.com tuesday. "If something changes down the road, but from what I was told at the time, surgery was not required. I think when [the doctors] talked to us, they figured and guys told us, around the All-Star break is when we can expect him back."

The problem with forgoing surgery immediately is you have the potential to suffer a setback that eventually requires repairing anyways. If Morrow does need surgery down the line, he will likely sit out the rest of the season as a result.

Morrow had yet to find his footing prior to the injury, posting a 5.93 ERA in 27 1/3 innings through six starts.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
