Blue Jays activate Borucki from injured list, Merryweather optioned
Julian Merryweather was optioned to triple-A Buffalo to make room for Borucki.
The left-hander was placed on the 10-day IL with a middle finger blister on his pitching hand. It was his second stint on the IL this season. Borucki didn’t break camp with the Blue Jays after suffering a hamstring injury during spring training.
Merryweather has appeared in 12 games this season and has a 6.94 ERA with 12 strikeouts through 11.2 innings. He pitched two scoreless innings of relief in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader.
