Brandon Morrow placed on DL
Morrow left nine pitches into Monday's start against Washington after suffering a strained muscle in his left side. A second round of tests Tuesday confirmed the initial diagnosis and Morrow was placed on the DL. There is no timetable for his return.
Morrow entered Monday's game having won three of his previous four starts, a stretch in which he also threw two shutouts. The former first-round pick has a career-high three shutouts this season. He's 7-4 with a 3.01 earned-run average in 13 starts.
In 14 games with Toronto this season, Gomes is hitting .226 with three homers and eight RBIs.
