Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow suffered a setback during his rehab start on Monday night and will be re-evaluated, reports Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca. He has been on the DL for close to three weeks with a forearm strain.

Morrow, 28, went 2-3 with a 5.63 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 54 1/3 innings across 10 starts before hitting the DL. In parts of four seasons with Toronto, he has gone 33-28 with a 4.32 ERA in 504 2/3 innings. He missed close to a month with forearm inflammation back in 2011.

The Blue Jays recently welcomed Josh Johnson back to the rotation after he missed close to a month with a triceps issue. They are still without J.A. Happ (knee), Kyle Drabek (elbow), Drew Hutchison (elbow) and Ramon Ortiz (elbow).
