Borucki (forearm) was activated from the 60-day injured list Friday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Borucki has been on the injured list with a left forearm flexor strain since mid-May. He made two appearances after beginning a rehab stint with Triple-A Buffalo on July 7, striking out two while allowing one hit across two scoreless innings. He has a 4.05 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB this season for the Jays.
Borucki (forearm) will throw a rehab inning Saturday with Triple-A Buffalo and may be ready to be activated following the All-Star break, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.
Manager Charlie Montoyo said the lefty might make another rehab appearance Tuesday if Saturday's work goes well. Borucki, working his way back from a left forearm strain, completed a perfect, one-strikeout inning in his first rehab outing July 7.
Borucki (forearm) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Borucki struck out one in a perfect relief inning for Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, and he felt good afterward.

Borucki (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
The southpaw's move to the 60-day injured list is simply procedural to clear up a spot on the 40-man roster after right-hander Thomas Hatch (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day IL and optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move. Borucki has been sidelined since May 14 due to a forearm strain, but he could begin a rehab assignment this week and will be eligible to be reinstated in mid-July.

Borucki's side session Tuesday apparently went well, as he'll now face hitters for the first time.

He's been on the injured list since May 14, so it's not yet clear how many rehab outings he'll need before being cleared to return.
Borucki (forearm) is throwing a side session Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Assuming the session goes well, Borucki will be ready to progress to live batting practice as he works his way back from a left forearm strain. The lefty, who last pitched May 7, has a 4.05 ERA through 13.1 innings with 14 strikeouts and five walks. Though his numbers aren't dazzling, Borucki could be a huge addition to Toronto's struggling bullpen once healthy.
Borucki (forearm) threw a successful bullpen session Friday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Borucki has been on the injured list since May 14 with the forearm strain and has taken longer than initially expected to return. He'll resume throwing in the coming days, which will likely be followed by a rehab assignment if all goes well. With that said, a mid-to-late-June return to the Blue Jays' bullpen appears to be the best-case scenario for the southpaw.
Manager Charlie Montoyo said Tuesday that Borucki (forearm) isn't close to returning, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Borucki has been on the injured list since May 14 and was initially expected to have a brief absence. However, the southpaw's recovery has progressed slowly, and he hasn't yet resumed throwing, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. A better idea of Borucki's return timetable could be revealed once he begins a throwing program.
Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Sunday that Borucki (forearm) is expected to be on the injured list for the minimum 10 days or close to it, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
Borucki was placed on the IL on Friday with a left forearm strain. According to Atkins, Borucki's injury is to the lower portion of his forearm, which the Blue Jays don't believe will affect his velocity or command when he eventually returns. Borucki had posted a 4.05 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB in 13.1 innings before landing on the IL.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said after Thursday's 8-4 win over Atlanta that Borucki has been dealing with fatigue in his left arm, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
Montoyo was careful to note that Borucki isn't dealing with an injury, and the Blue Jays are optimistic that he'll be available out of the bullpen for this weekend's series with the Phillies. Borucki's last relief appearance came back on May 7.
Borucki (2-1) picked up the win in Wednesday's victory over the Red Sox, allowing one hit and one walk over two scoreless innings. He struck out two.
On a bullpen day for the Jays, Borucki was judged by the official scorer to be the most effective of the team's relievers even though he entered the game in the sixth inning with Toronto already ahead 4-2. The lefty has two holds through seven appearances (6.2 innings) in addition to his two wins, and Borucki's 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB are sharp as well. The 27-year-old is the top southpaw in the bullpen, although Tim Mayza has also worked his way into the high-leverage mix.
Borucki (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.
Borucki missed Friday's game due to vaccine-related symptoms, but he'll be available once again Saturday. Ty Tice was sent back down by the Blue Jays in a corresponding move.

Borucki is dealing with fatigue and a fever after receiving his COVID-19 vaccine and has been sent home by the team to rest. Since there isn't a minimum amount of time that a player needs to spend on the COVID-19 IL, Borucki will be able to return to the team as soon as his symptoms subside. Right-handers Joel Payamps and Ty Tice were called up by Toronto in corresponding moves.
Borucki (1-0) tossed 0.2 scoreless innings in Sunday's win over the Yankees.
Borucki earned his first win of the season and needed only two outs to accomplish that feat. He tossed five of his eight pitches for strikes and easily retired Jay Bruce and Gary Sanchez. Borucki is not expected to see the mound in high-leverage situations though, so his upside isn't very high going forward. However, he has started the year with back-to-back scoreless outings.
Borucki has posted a 2.25 ERA and 6:0 K:BB through four Grapefruit League innings.
The southpaw began adjusting to a short relief role last season, and Borucki appears to be thriving with the switch. The 26-year-old should open the season as Toronto's top setup option from the left side, potentially making Borucki a strong source of holds in 2021.
