Brandon Morrow gave up five runs and six hits in three innings Wednesday in a loss to the Pirates.

Morrow is a huge key to the Blue Jays' chances of reemerging as contenders this year, but we're not particularly optimistic. He still has considerable upside, but there are better rebound candidates in AL-only leagues.

Brandon Morrow has reported to Blue Jays' camp 25 pounds heavier than he did last year.

Morrow weighed 190 pounds last season but usually is around the 205 mark, so he's only up about 10 pounds from his normal weight. He said it wasn't a conscious decision to gain the weight over the winter, but he started lifting more weights and eating more protein and decided to go with it. Morrow is looking to bounce back this season after an injury-shortened 2013 that saw him post a 5.63 ERA over just 10 starts.

It will be his first bullpen session since he was shut down in July. Morrow continues to progress in his recovery from an entrapped radial nerve in his right forearm, and is currently playing catch five days a week. While he's optimistic at this stage, Morrow is anxious to get back on the mound to see how everything feels. The injury limited the hard-throwing 29-year-old to just ten starts in 2013.

Morrow hasn't pitched since May 28 and will finish up the 2013 season having registered a disappointing 5.63 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 54 1/3 innings.

Brandon Morrow (forearm) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday.

It's the first time he's thrown from a mound since he landed on the DL with inflammation in his forearm. It's not clear when Morrow will be ready for a rehab assignment, and he'll require at least three rehab starts once he's ready for game action. The Blue Jays aren't counting on having him back until August.
