KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Toronto Blue Jays have placed left-hander Ryan Borucki on the 10-day injured list with left elbow inflammation, retroactive to Sunday.
Left-hander Buddy Boshers has been selected to the major league roster to take Borucki’s place.
It’s another setback for Borucki, who missed the first half of his sophomore year after suffering a left elbow injury in spring training.
Borucki, 25, returned to the Blue Jays earlier this month and made two starts, going 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA. He pitched just 6 2/3 innings during those two outings.
Borucki had a promising rookie campaign, going 4-6 with a 3.87 ERA while striking out 67 and walking 33 in 17 starts.
The loss of Borucki thins out an already short-handed Blue Jays starting staff after the trade of Marcus Stroman to the New York Mets on Sunday.
