Lawrie has not played baseball with the Blue Jays since August 7 2014. The Blue Jays have decided to place Lawrie on the shelf for the remainder of the current baseball season.
Morrow has not pitched for the Blue Jays in the 2014 regular season since he suffered an injury to his right finger on May 2 2014. Morrow will be a free agent at the end of the 2014 Major League Baseball season.
The Blue Jays are likely to have Morrow pitch in a relief role for the remainder of the 2014 regular baseball season. The Blue Jays are currently in third place in the American League Eastern Division ten games behind the Baltimore Orioles who are the division leaders.
Morrow has pitched for the Blue Jays since 2010 when he was traded by the Seattle Mariners for right handed pitcher Brandon League and minor league outfielder Johermyn Chavez before the start of the 2010 season.
