Julian Merryweather News
The Toronto Blue Jays activated relief pitcher Julian Merryweather (oblique) from the 60-day injured list on Monday and optioned Casey Lawrence to the minors in a corresponding move. The Blue Jays also designated catcher Zack Collins for assignment. Merryweather has been away from the team since June 13 with a left oblique strain and had been on a lengthy minor league rehab assignment, but he'll now be available out of the bullpen for the stretch run in September. In 10 2/3 innings on his rehab assignment, the 30-year-old right-hander allowed no earned runs on three hits while walking five and striking out 15. Merryweather will work in middle relief in his return to the team and won't be on the fantasy radar.
The Toronto Blue Jays placed relief pitcher Julian Merryweather (abdominal) on the 15-day injured list on Tuesday. The team recalled fellow reliever Jeremy Beasley from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Merryweather is dealing with a left abdominal strain. He's had a rough year out of the pen, pitching to a 6.38 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. On the bright side, he's maintained a career-best 5.7 K/BB ratio while limiting opponents to just three walks over 18.1 innings.
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.
