BLUE JAYS RHP JON RAUCH DONE FOR THE SEASON

 

            The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have placed RHP JON RAUCH on the 15-day disabled list with right knee cartilage tear, retroactive to September 5th.

            RAUCH, 32, is 5-4 with 11 saves with an ERA of 4.85 in 53 games this season, his first with the Blue Jays.  The 6-10, 250 lb. right-handed pitcher will visit knee specialist Dr. Richard Steadman in Vail, Colorado to be evaluated early next week.  Should Dr. Steadman confirm the Blue Jays medical staff recommendation of surgery, he will perform the procedure at that time.  The recovery time should be six to eight weeks which will allow for full recovery prior to the 2012 spring training season.
