TORONTO -- Right-hander Brandon Morrow began his rehab assignment with Class A Dunedin on Wednesday night by tossing one scoreless inning.

Morrow entered out of the bullpen and retired all three batters he faced. He struck out one and got two other batters to fly out in Dunedin's 8-2 loss to Daytona.

Toronto has yet to announce a timetable for Morrow's return, but he's expected back at some point in September. He hasn't pitched for the Blue Jays since he tore a tendon sheath in his right index finger on May 2 in Pittsburgh.

Morrow has spent his entire career in a Blue Jays uniform as a starter, but when he returns, it will be as a reliever. There isn't enough time remaining in the season for Morrow to build up enough stamina to start.
