Ryan Borucki won’t be starting for the Bisons today and will instead be making his major league debut this Tuesday against the Houston Astros, according to Ben Wagner. The Blue Jays will be recalling the left-handed pitcher prior to Tuesday’s game against Charlie Morton.

Borucki, 24, was drafted in the 15th round back in 2012 and missed the entire 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He had an impressive 2017 campaign, starting in advanced-A Dunedin before moving onto double-A New Hampshire and then pitching his final game of the season in triple-A Buffalo. He was named as Bluebird Banter’s #6 Blue Jays prospect this past offseason. Borucki continued his success with the Bisons this season, recording a 3.27 ERA over 13 starts.

Ryan Borucki will fill in the rotation spot left vacant by the injury of Aaron Sanchez. Luis Santos will start in Borucki’s place today. Borucki will be the 44th Blue Jay to make his major league debut as a starting pitcher, with Chris Rowley being the most recent one to do so.
