Out since May with a torn tendon in his finger, oft-injured right-hander Brandon Morrow is off the disabled list and has rejoined the Blue Jays. And it’ll be as a reliever.
Morrow has been exclusively a starter for Toronto since 2010, including what looked at the time like a breakout season as a starter in 2012, but he’s been injured and effective of late and the Blue Jays are hoping a bullpen role can keep him healthier.
Morrow began his career as a reliever for the Mariners, totaling 16 saves, but Seattle traded him to Toronto in December of 2009. If he’s healthy and still has his mid-90s fastball relief work could certainly suit Morrow well at this point in his career, but … who knows.
