Blue Jays encouraged by Morrow's first rehab start
SEATTLE -- Right-hander Brandon Morrow threw three scoreless innings for Class-A Dunedin on Sunday in his first rehab appearance since straining his left oblique muscle on June 11.

Morrow allowed three hits while walking one and striking out three. He is scheduled for one more start with Dunedin later this week before making an additional two for Double-A New Hampshire. Morrow threw 26 pitches on Sunday and the ultimate goal is to get him up to 85 before he rejoins the Blue Jays.

"[He] came out of it fine," said Blue Jays manager John Farrell, who added Morrow topped out at 95 mph. "That number in itself indicates there's some confidence in the way he was going about his intensity. A very successful day and first time back up on mound."

Morrow is 7-4 with a 3.01 ERA in 13 starts this season. He also has 67 strikeouts in 77 2/3 innings while tossing three shutouts in what was shaping up to be a breakout season prior to the untimely injury.
