Injuries & Moves: Borucki's tenure with Blue Jays ends

5 de junio de 2022

Keep track of the Blue Jays’ recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.


June 4: LHP traded to Mariners for 1B/3B Tyler Keenan

Borucki, who was recently designated for assignment, had been with the organization for a decade after being drafted in 2012. The lefty had pitched in parts of five MLB seasons with the Blue Jays, but he opened the season with a 9.95 ERA in '22 prior to the DFA. He’ll now get a fresh start in Seattle.

In Keenan, the Blue Jays add a 23-year-old who plays both corners of the infield. Keenan was a fourth-round pick in the 2020 Draft and was with Seattle’s High-A affiliate, where he opened the season hitting .250 with three home runs and a .740 OPS over 25 games. -- Keegan Matheson


10-day & 15-day IL

LHP (left forearm inflammation)
Expected return: Multiple weeks at minimum
An MRI revealed a left forearm strain and elbow inflammation, so the 35-year-old will miss multiple weeks. The Blue Jays will know more when they consult with additional doctors, but even the best-case scenario could be a long road back for Ryu. -- Keegan Matheson (Last updated: June 3)

LHP Tim Mayza (left forearm inflammation)
Expected return:
Next week
Mayza threw a live batting practice session prior to the series opener against the Twins on June 3 in Toronto, reaching 21 pitches. The lefty left that session feeling good, so the Blue Jays will evaluate how he bounces back the following day and go from there. This could be the final step in his return and a rehab assignment isn’t necessarily required. -- Keegan Matheson (Last updated: June 3)

LHP Tayler Saucedo (right hip discomfort)
Expected return:
Potentially June
Saucedo is scheduled to throw a bullpen session at the club’s complex in Dunedin, Fla., on June 4. He’ll eventually need a rehab assignment, but this represents the first steps of his return. -- Keegan Matheson (Last updated: June 3)

RHP Nate Pearson (mononucleosis)
Expected return:
Potentially late June
Pearson moved up to Triple-A Buffalo and threw two innings, allowing a solo home run and striking out two. The Blue Jays maintain that Pearson will still need to pitch his way onto the roster once he’s fully built up, but now that he’s at Triple-A, the “rehab” portion of this journey is reaching its end. -- Keegan Matheson (Last updated: June 3)
