Brandon Morrow leaves start with oblique strain

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer
Brandon Morrow

Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow, who's in the midst of what could be that long-anticipated breakout season, was forced to exit his Monday start against the Nationals after just nine pitches.

Morrow suffered an apparent injury to his left rib-cage area, which was preliminarily diagnosed as a left oblique strain. Morrow is listed as day-to-day, but more will be known on Tuesday when the soreness sets in. The good news is that it doesn't appear to be an arm injury for Morrow, who has battled shoulder problems for much of his career.

This season, Morrow boasts a 3.01 ERA after 13 starts and leads the majors with three shutouts.
