Morrow throws in bullpen, set for next start

Morrow throws in bullpen, set for next start

TORONTO -- Brandon Morrow threw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday morning and appears set to make Wednesday's start against the White Sox.

Morrow sustained a deep bruise on his right shin after being hit by a line drive off the bat of Wilson Betemit on May 30. Morrow was immediately removed from the game, and while the club initially feared the worst, he successfully avoided a major injury.

Toronto's No. 2 starter has the added luxury of receiving an extra two days of rest in between outings because of two off-days in a five-day span, and that should be enough to allow him to start against the White Sox.

"We don't anticipate anything less than getting through a successful bullpen," Blue Jays manager John Farrell said during a morning scrum with reporters.

The 27-year-old Morrow arguably has been the Blue Jays' best pitcher this season. He is currently 6-3 with a 3.28 ERA while striking out 62 in 68 2/3 innings.
