Brandon Morrow Day-To-Day After Comebacker

The AL East is bananas. Each team is at least within two-and-a-half games of first place, and they all have roughly the same run differential. It looks like there are five evenly matched teams in the division. The Blue Jays are one of those teams. But without Brandon Morrow pitching the way he has, they probably wouldn't be quite so evenly matched.

After Morrow took a line drive off the shin on Wednesday, though, he appears to be fine. From MLB.com:

"It hurt a lot, my foot was numb, and then it felt like it was swelling up," said Morrow, who allowed just one run in 6 1/3 innings and earned the win. "I guess there's a nerve in there that it hit or something, but luckily it hit the muscle on the side of my shin. An inch or an inch and a half over, and it could have been a different story."

X-rays were negative, and Morrow said the leg felt better the more he walked around. He's likely to be day to day, with his next start scheduled for next Wednesday.
