Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ross Stripling will be out of action for 15 days with a right hip injury.
This is what the Major League Baseball organization announced on Wednesday, moments before its duel against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg. The decision is retroactive to July 31.
Stripling has appeared in 23 games this season, including 15 as a starter. He went 5-3 with a 3.16 goals-against average.
The Jays also recalled right-handed pitcher Matt Peacock from their AAA-level branch while sending another right-handed gunner in Mitch White. White had been acquired the day before from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
