Toronto Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Friday, Dec. 6, that the team is continuing to search for ways to upgrade their starting rotation. For now, the team is taking positives out of how SPs Mark Buehrle and R.A. Dickey finished their first seasons with the team after a slow start, and a return to health by SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) would be a deciding factor.

The Toronto Blue Jays have reinstated SP Brandon Morrow (forearm), RPs Brett Cecil (elbow) and Juan Perez (elbow), INF Maicer Izturis (ankle) and OF Melky Cabrera (back, knee) to the 40-man roster from the 60-day disabled list.

The Toronto Blue Jays activated RP Sergio Santos (elbow) from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Aug. 1, and placed SP Dustin McGowan (side) on the 15-day disabled list and moved SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) to the 60-day DL in corresponding moves.
Fantasy Tip: Santos will return to a setup role to Casey Janssen. Santos won't have much fantasy value. Morrow's season is effectively over with this move.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) will miss an additional six weeks with an entrapped radial nerve in his right forearm.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, the chances of Morrow returning to pitch for Toronto are very slim. Don't feel any loyalty toward keeping him on your roster, even in AL-only leagues.

Updating previous reports, Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) is likely done for the year due to an entrapped radial nerve in his right forearm.
Fantasy Tip: Cut bait in single-year leagues.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) will receive more tests on his forearm after he experienced more soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Don't hold out hope for Morrow to return to the mound again this year, unless maybe you're in an AL-only league and don't have many other options.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) threw 25 pitches in a bullpen session at the team's minor-league facility in Dunedin, Fla. Tuesday, July 9, but it is still unclear when he'll be able to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. Morrow will need at least three rehab games before returning to the club.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) is pain-free while throwing off flat ground, but he's not expected to return until August. SP J.A. Happ (knee) is throwing off a mound but is still feeling some soreness in his knee. He's unlikely to return until August, too.
Fantasy Tip: Because of a murky timetable for their return, both Morrow and Happ probably shouldn't be taking up space on your roster in deep mixed leagues at this time. As they approach their returns, especially Morrow, you may want to consider adding them.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (forearm) hasn't resumed a throwing program yet.
Fantasy Tip: The team is making sure the inflammation in his arm has subsided before he starts to throw again. He'll have to regain arm strength before likely making a few rehab starts in the minors. Morrow is probably weeks away from a return, at the earliest. We wouldn't blame you for dropping him in shallow mixed leagues if you don't have the room to stash him.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow's (forearm) MRI exam showed inflammation in his forearm and no structural damage. He will be shut down for the time being to let the inflammation subside.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Morrow will have to start his rehab process over again, meaning he'll be out for quite a while. At least he doesn't have any structural damage. If he's taking up a spot on your roster in a shallow mixed league, it's time to consider dropping him.
