Jays to give Morrow extra rest

Brandon Morrow Bravo to the Toronto Blue Jays for taking care of Brandon Morrow's golden right arm.

Morrow will get extra rest after his 137-pitch no-hit bid against the Rays on Sunday, MLB.com reports . He won't pitch against until Aug. 17, with his scheduled start on Friday going to left-hander Marc Rzepczynski. The Blue Jays will call up Rzepczynski for Friday's game and then will likely be sent right back down.

That's likely good new for Anaheim, who will miss Morrow, and bad news for the A's, who will now see him instead.

Morrow has already thrown a career-high 127 1/3 innings in his first year as a full-time starter. He threw 124 2/3 innings between Seattle and Triple-A last season.
