Borucki (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday.
He has already been ruled out for the year after having surgery to remove bone spurs from his left elbow.
Borucki underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his left elbow and will miss the rest of the 2019 season, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Borucki ominously had his case reviewed by Dr. James Andrews, but he received good news and will avoid Tommy John surgery. 2019 is a season to forget for the 25-year-old as he pitched only 6.2 innings after being sidelined the first half of the year with an elbow injury. Borucki expects to be ready to go for spring training.
Borucki (elbow) will have his case reviewed by Dr. James Andrews as the Blue Jays attempt to determine the best plan for him going forward, Shi Davidi of Sporstnet.CA reports.
While there initially was some confusion whether Borucki would be directly visiting with Dr. Andrews or not, the overall outlook isn't promising. The southpaw already had a three-month absence to begin the season, and this latest sojourn to the IL also appears as though it will be comfortably longer than the 10-day minimum.
Borucki was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with left elbow inflammation.
Per Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca, Borucki's elbow didn't feel right after he played catch Wednesday, prompting the Blue Jays to move him back to the IL with a continuation of the same issue that prevented him from making his season debut until July 22. Borucki was blasted for six runs in just two innings over the weekend in what was just his second start back from the IL. The Blue Jays likely won't have a clearer idea for how long Borucki may be sidelined this time around until he resumes throwing again. Toronto selected reliever Buddy Boshers' contract from the minors in a corresponding move.
Borucki allowed six runs on eight hits, two walks and three strikeouts over two innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Saturday.
Borucki wriggled out of trouble in the first inning by inducing a double play after loading the bases with one out. However, the left-hander gave up three-run homers in the second to both Travis d'Arnaud and Willy Adames. The 25-year-old was making just his second appearance of this season, and he has struggled out of the gate with a 10.80 ERA, 3.15 WHIP and a 6:6 K:BB in his first 6.2 innings. Borucki will look to improve during his next start against the Orioles at Camden Yards next Thursday.
Borucki (0-1) took the loss Monday as the Blue Jays were downed 7-3 by Cleveland, giving up four runs (two earned) on seven hits and four walks over 4.2 innings while striking out three.
After missing the first four months of the season, the southpaw made his 2019 debut but looked like he needed a little more time on a rehab assignment to shake off the rust. Borucki threw only 47 of 94 pitches for strikes, and when he did find the plate he caught too much of it -- four of the seven hits he allowed went for extra bases. He'll look for a better result in his next start Saturday, at home against the Rays.
Borucki (elbow) was activated from the injured list Monday ahead of his scheduled start against the Indians.
As expected, Borucki is set to make his 2019 big-league debut after missing the past four months with an elbow injury. The southpaw looked solid across four minor-league rehab starts, compiling a 3.00 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 19:3 K:BB across 18 innings. Trent Thornton (elbow) was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move.
Borucki (elbow) will start Monday's game against the Indians, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports.
Borucki has been on the shelf since April due to a left elbow injury, but he was able to complete his rehab assignment and will be brought back from the injured list to start Monday's contest. In 17 starts for Toronto last year, he posted a 3.87 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with a 67:33 K:BB over 97.2 innings.
Manager Charlie Montoyo said Borucki (elbow) would be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Sunday against the Tigers or Monday against the Indians, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
On the IL all season after succumbing to left elbow issues late in spring training, Borucki is finally ready to make his 2019 debut at the major-league level after a successful four-start rehab stint in the minors. Borucki made his final appearance Tuesday for Triple-A Buffalo, covering six innings and giving up three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six. He would be available to take the hill on normal rest Sunday, but Montoyo may prefer to use Borucki on Monday just to give the lefty an additional day to recover. In that scenario, Jacob Waguespack would remain in line to start Sunday's series finale.
Borucki (elbow) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Borucki has been out all season with elbow issues. He's made a pair of rehab appearances in the low minors and looked excellent, striking out 10 and walking none while allowing just a single hit in seven scoreless innings. He's expected to throw five or six innings Thursday and likely isn't too far from returning to Toronto.
Borucki (elbow) made a rehab appearance at High-A Dunedin on Monday, working four scoreless innings and allowing only one baserunner while striking out four.
Tasked with a jump in competition after making his first rehab appearance June 26 with the Blue Jays' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate, Borucki cruised through the outing while tossing 35 of 47 pitches for strikes. Considering that Borucki has been on the injured list all season with the elbow issue, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com speculates that the lefty will require 2-to-3 more rehab starts before Toronto reinstates him. The 25-year-old should fill a back-end role in the big-league rotation once activated.
Borucki (elbow) is scheduled to pitch for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays on Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Per Zwelling, Borucki is scheduled to throw three innings in what will mark his first game action since injuring his elbow near the end of spring training. The right-hander will need plenty of time to build back up given the length of his absence, suggesting a return is at least multiple weeks away.
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.
Borucki (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list on Monday.
The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Eric Sogard, whose contract was purchased in a corresponding transaction. Borucki had been trending towards a late April return but hit a snag in his rehab. He received a cortisone shot and won't throw for two more weeks. He'll be eligible to return in late May.
Borucki (elbow) received a cortisone injection Friday and won't throw for two weeks, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Borucki apparently experienced some soreness during his last throwing session, prompting the injection. The 25-year-old was previously targeting a two-game series with the Giants on April 23-24 for his return, but that is clearly no longer possible. Borucki is likely looking at a return in mid-May at the earliest given that he won't resume throwing until the end of April.
Borucki (elbow) threw a successful side session Wednesday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
The Blue Jays will determine Borucki's next step in the coming days. The tentative plan is for the southpaw to return during Toronto's two-game series against the Giants on April 23 and 24, though it remains to be seen if he'll be ready.
