TORONTO -- Brandon Morrow hasnt pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays since late May and when he will again remains a mystery. Cheap Darian Stewart Jersey . The starters sore right forearm is feeling better but still isnt 100 per cent and hell be re-examined to figure out exactly whats wrong, general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. All MRIs have revealed so far is inflammation but that isnt a source of much comfort. "Its hard to be (optimistic) at this point, Im just being honest. He just hasnt been able to get it going," Anthopoulos said prior to Torontos home game Wednesday night versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I dont know enough about the severity. "I just know that its not safe for him to go out there. The last thing you want is a blown-out shoulder or an elbow or something like that. We dont know enough yet about Brandon." Morrow was placed on the disabled list in early June after going 2-3 with a 5.63 ERA in 10 starts for the Blue Jays. The 28-year-old has been throwing side sessions in Dunedin, Fla., but theres no time frame for when he could return. "I ask our trainers: It seems like weve given him so much rest, should he not be 100 per cent at this point? Its tough to know how everyones body recovers," Anthopoulos said. "It just might be one of those things that it just needs a lot more time than we hoped and thought." Another starter who began the season win Torontos rotation is left-hander J.A. Happ, who suffered a twisted knee and a skull fracture May 7 when he was hit by a line drive. Happ could return after one more minor-league rehab start or the club could choose to give him a couple more. "When he moves off the mound its still not 100 per cent," Anthopoulos said. "Obviously he can go out there and pitch, but hes still a little bit stiff at times with some of the movements off the mound." When Happ returns, the Blue Jays would like him to eat up innings. Torontos bullpen had logged a major league-leading 353 1/3 innings heading into action Wednesday. Happ is working towards being able to throw 90-to-95 pitches. "Well see how he does," Anthopoulos said. "He runs deep counts no matter what, so its the type of guy that especially with a seven-man pen, when he is back we want to feel good enough that he can go deep enough to be able to protect the pen." Right-hander Kyle Drabek, whos coming off his second career Tommy John surgery, is doing well while Drew Hutchinson (elbow) and Sergio Santos (triceps) are also making progress, Anthopoulos said. Reliever Luis Perez (elbow) is expected to start a rehab assignment in August and would then be on pace to return by September, if not sooner. That kind of clarity doesnt exist with Morrow, whom the Blue Jays would like to be a part of their long-term future. So far in the majors, he hasnt eclipsed 180 innings in a season, but Anthopoulos declined to label Morrow as someone who might never be a 200-inning starter. Theres just no certainty about Morrows short-term prognosis, and what he could bring if and when he returns. "A lot can happen, a lot can change," Anthopoulos said. "All of a sudden he may feel great and it may just be two more weeks of rest or something. "We may see him in three weeks or September or whatnot." Anthopoulos was hopeful hed have more answers in a week or two and certainly in a couple of months. The unknown prevails for Morrow and the Blue Jays until then. "Its too early. I dont have enough information," he said. "At some point well get to the bottom of it."
