Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey will make his next start against the Houston Astros Thursday, April 10, allowing the team to push SP Dustin McGowan back a day to split him and SP Brandon Morrow in the rotation. Morrow will start against the Astros Wednesday, April 9, while McGowan will start the opener against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, April 11.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow allowed three walks over five innings in his latest Grapefruit League spring outing Monday, March 24, but he did avoid a lot of hard contact. "Out of all the base hits, none of them were really struck all that hard," Morrow said. "Every one was on a really good pitch. There's really not a lot to complain about as far as the pitches they hit." He is scheduled to start against Saturday, March 29, in Montreal against the New York Mets, and likely will be slotted to pitch in either the fourth or fifth game of the regular season.
Fantasy Tip: Morrow is a nice addition to the back end of AL-only fantasy rotations, but mixed leaguers might want to hold off a little while and see how he responds early before risking a roster spot. He has been a nice source of strikeouts in the past, but his propensity for injury makes him a very risky proposition at this point.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow is weighing in at 219 pounds this spring, which is 25 pounds more than he weighed last offseason. "He's put on a lot of weight – muscle," manager John Gibbons said. "He looks strong. He looks like he's supposed to look. Last year he didn't look like that. He looks like a good, strong, starting, durable pitcher." Morrow said he's feeling strong and healthy, and he added more protein shakes and eggs to his diet.

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.

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.
