Julian Merryweather News
Toronto Blue Jays reliever Julian Merryweather (oblique) is with the club in New York and is expected to return from the injured list, according to Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic. Merryweather hasn't pitched since April 13 after straining his oblique and landing on the IL. Before being sidelined, he pitched well in 4.1 innings, allowing no runs with seven strikeouts and two saves. Reliever Jordan Romano has all but locked up the closer role for the Jays, so Merryweather will probably be in a setup role the rest of the way.
Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Julian Merryweather (oblique) suffered a setback in his recovery after his outing in the Florida Complex League on August 18. He was dealing with what was described as general soreness after the outing. Fortunately, he has progressed forward from the setback. He continued his rehab assignment on Tuesday, pitching a scoreless inning and striking out one batter. Merryweather has been sidelined for about four months due to a left oblique strain. Assuming no major setbacks, he should be able to rejoin the Blue Jays bullpen at some point in September.
Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Julian Merryweather (oblique) suffered a setback during his rehab assignment and will have his next appearance pushed back, according to Keegan Matheson of MLB.com. Merryweather tossed 4 1/3 innings back in April and looked to be a potential closer candidate for Toronto before landing on the IL with a left oblique strain that has kept him out of action ever since. Matheson reports that Merryweather had thrown one inning on Wednesday with Dunedin, but left the game with soreness and will have his next scheduled appearance pushed back. At this point it's unlikely that Merryweather will have any value in 2021, but if he's healthy he could be an interesting guy to keep an eye on in Toronto's bullpen in 2022.
