Borucki has been placed on a strict pitch count in his recent starts for High-A Dunedin, SB Nationt reports.

The reason for the recent restriction placed on Borucki is unspecified, but it may be a simple case of preserving the prospect's arm. The southpaw tossed just 68.2 frames over his first three professional seasons but last year Borucki racked up 135.2 innings for Low- and High-A combined, giving the Jays good reason to be careful with him. Through eight starts in 2017, Borucki owns a 4.11 ERA and 1.31 with 41 strikeouts over 35 innings.
