PITTSBURGH – By the time the Blue Jays arrived to PNC Park on Saturday afternoon, Brandon Morrow was already in Arizona undergoing an MRI on his injured right hand.

The Blue Jays, for the time being, are calling it a strain of the right index finger.

"He felt something pop right here, an index finger strain," said manager John Gibbons, pointing to the base of his right index finger. "That could change, they're out there doing an MRI right now, once the doctor reads it. He felt it towards the end of his last inning (on Friday.)"

Right-hander Chad Jenkins was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to take Morrow's roster spot.

Gibbons had planned to use six starters through the next turn of the rotation. With Morrow's injury those plans get scrapped. J.A. Happ will start, as planned, on Monday in Philadelphia and will be followed by Drew Hutchison on Tuesday and Mark Buehrle on Wednesday.

Happ will remain in the starting rotation for the foreseeable future.

Morrow, 29, is 1-2 with a 5.93 ERA and a 1.720 WHIP in 27 1/3 innings over six starts. He went five innings in Friday night's 6-5 loss to the Pirates, leaving the game with a 4-3 lead.
