Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Blue Jays | Brandon Morrow to DL

The Toronto Blue Jays placed SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, June 1, and recalled Ps Ramon Ortiz and Mickey Storey from Triple-A Buffalo in corresponding moves. Also, SP Chad Jenkins was optioned to Buffalo and SP Ricky Romero cleared waivers and was outrighted to Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz is expected to replace Morrow in the starting rotation. The veteran had already made six starts this year while filling in, for an ERA of 5.01. Only consider Ortiz for your roster if you're desperate for pitching help in AL-only formats. The injury to Morrow is extremely frustrating. Those in shallow mixed leagues should consider cutting bait if they don't have the roster space to absorb this hit.
