Litsch to DL, Murphy Recalled
The Jays placed Jesse Litsch (right forearm and elbow soreness) on the 15-day disabled list this afternoon and have recalled lefty Bill Murphy from Triple-A Las Vegas. Seeing as Murphy is a reliever, likely here to help the taxed bullpen, Toronto still needs a starter for Saturday.
One thing to note is that lefty prospect Brett Cecil’s next scheduled turn to pitch falls on Saturday. Just saying. Just got here to the Metrodome a little while ago, so we haven’t had a chance to talk with manager Cito Gaston.
UPDATE: For those following me on twitter (@MLBastian), this won’t be new, but Brian Tallet is slated to start on Saturday. Jays feel guys like Cecil and Brad Mills need more time.
