The 25-year-old gunner suffers from a pulled muscle. He was injured during a start in the minor leagues (AAA).
The right-hander was forced to start his 2022 campaign after his teammates, as he was diagnosed with mononucleosis in April. He got his first start on May 26. Since then, he has maintained a 3.52 ERA in seven and two-thirds innings.
Considered until recently as one of the Jays' brightest prospects, Pearson has been disappointing lately. His progress has also been significantly slowed due to injuries. He was a first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2017 draft.
