Jays place Marcum on DL

Shaun Marcum Shaun Marcum's comeback story is taking a little detour.

The Toronto right-hander had Tommy John ligament replacement surgery in 2008 and missed the entire 2009 season. This year he was the Jays' opening day starter, the first pitcher other than Roy Halladay to land that assignment since 2003.

Marcum has not only returned to action but been used heavily, sharing the American League lead with 17 starts (7-4, 3.44 ERA) and throwing 107 innings. He had a rough outing in his start Thursday, and Friday the Jays announced he was going on the disabled list with inflammation in his elbow.

General manager Alex Anthropoulos downplayed the seriousness of the problem and said the Jays are only using the disabled list to take advantage of the All-Star break. Marcum will miss only one start.

"Like I told Shaun, and I told him this in Spring Training, too, I said, 'Look, we're going to be overly cautious with you," Anthropoulos told MLB.com. "You know how important you are and you know how good you are."

Marc Rzepczynski won't be able to replace Marcum.  Rzepczynski pitched well last year but I'm still not convinced he can get it done consistently in the majors.

I agree, especially because Anthropolous was downplaying it. Maybe hes scared? Romero should be the #1 starter anyways though. But when Marcum is on, he's really on. He'll be back before we know it.

15 days? yea right, thats just the start. Who wants to bet this ends with Tommy John. I dont know the details but the only way we see him again this season is if its not his pitching elbow.
