Description: Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos doesn't think Brandon Morrow will need surgery on his right hand, according to Gregor Chisholm of mlb.com. He suffered a torn tendon sheath on May 2 at Pittsburgh and was placed on the 60-day disabled list.
Insight: If Morrow (5.93 ERA, 1.72 WHIP) doesn't need surgery, he could be back near the All-Star break. The right-hander displayed a lofty ceiling when he struck out 381 batters in 325 1/3 innings in 2010-11 and looked to be reaching it in 2012 when he posted a 2.90 ERA in his first 77 2/3 innings. However, an oblique injury limited him to 124 2/3 innings that year and he threw just 54 1/3 while putting up a 5.63 ERA in 2013. He's now 29 years old.
