Gomes back in Toronto with Morrow on DL
TORONTO -- Right-hander Brandon Morrow was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday morning to clear room on the roster for utility man Yan Gomes.

The Blue Jays previously announced Morrow was headed to the DL because of a left oblique strain, and there is currently no timetable for his return to the mound.

Gomes is back in the big leagues just two days after being optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas. He provides the club with some additional versatility off the bench, as he is capable of playing first, third, left field and behind the plate.
