Ryan Dempster was placed on the restricted list yesterday after leaving the team for personal reasons, but it turns out that he will not require an extended absence.

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, Dempster will return to start Monday against the Orioles. Roy Oswalt, who was banished to the bullpen last month after struggling to the tune of a 6.49 ERA in six starts, made a spot start in his place afternoon against the Blue Jays.

Dempster has really struggled since being acquired from the Cubs late last month, giving up 19 runs in 17 innings over three starts. He allowed 19 runs total over his first nine starts this season.

      Oh, the hilarious irony. I’m guessing Dempster doesn’t return back here much to visit his family?

    This guy is a clown. Do one of our stupid impersonations now you payaso. I couldn’t stand this guy in Chicago with his ridiculous joking around all of the time. There is nothing like being a million games out by the end of march and knowing that you have to put up with a guy in his thirties who acts like he’s 12. Tell some jokes, Ryan. Oh, wait. You are the joke.
