Borucki (elbow) threw a live batting practice Saturday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Borucki has continued to progress in his recovery from elbow inflammation, but he's still weeks away from being ready to return to Toronto. Injuries have kept him off the field all season to this point.
General manager Ross Atkins said Borucki (elbow) is "probably a month away" from joining the Blue Jays' rotation, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Borucki has been sidelined all season with elbow issues, and while he resumed mound work earlier in the month, it doesn't sound like his return is imminent.
Borucki (elbow) is slated to throw his third bullpen session Saturday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Borucki has finally advanced to throwing off a mound, though the Blue Jays have been reluctant to offer up a timetable for the southpaw's return. "I know we're going to be patient with him," stated manager Charlie Montoyo. "When he's ready for 75-90 pitches, he'll be here."
Borucki (elbow) threw from 120 feet Tuesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Borucki has been dealing with elbow issues since late March. He's expected to throw a bullpen session Friday assuming his elbow responds positively to the long-toss session.
Borucki (elbow) is throwing from 90 feet and will start long tossing next week, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Nicholson-Smith speculates that Borucki likely won't be able to return to the big-league rotation until mid-to-late-June, considering he is not yet throwing off a mound. The Blue Jays have dealt with numerous injuries in the rotation, so Borucki should have a spot waiting for him when he is back to full health and has had a chance to build up his workload during a rehab assignment.
