Brandon Morrow is still three weeks away from throwing a baseball, but when he does pick up a ball and start throwing it will be an incredibly important moment.  Morrow is looking to avoid surgery, but he is still bothered by an entrapped radial nerve in his pitching arm.  If the injury does not resolve itself, Morrow will require surgery. According to Evan Peaslee of MLB.com, Morrow would undergo surgery in October if he does ultimately need it.  That would hopefully allow him to be ready for spring training.  Morrow had hoped to be pitching again by now, but normal rehab failed to alleviate the problem.  He was eventually shut down altogether. "To test it, I need to be off the mound throwing bullpens at 100 percent effort level," Morrow said. "I can't go through and baby it. I need to know if it's going to be good or not." Morrow was supposed to be one of the main pieces of a Blue Jays rotation that was to be greatly enhanced with the addition of Mark Buehrle.  Unfortunately, Morrow has not pitched since late May.  Much like Morrow's, the Blue Jays' season has not gone according to plan.  Picked to be the favorite for the World Series prior to the season by many, the Blue Jays are 12 games under .500 and in last place in the American League East. Morrow made 10 starts this season before landing on the DL.  He went 2-3 with a 5.63 ERA.  In his seven-year career, Morrow is 41-40 with a 4.22 ERA.
