The Toronto Blue Jays placed right-hander Ross Stripling on the 15-day injured list on Wednesday, sidelining him with a right hip strain. His injury stint is retroactive to July 31, meaning he’ll be eligible to return on August 15.
In his absence, the team has recalled right-hander Matt Peacock from triple-A Buffalo and made him active ahead of Wednesday’s finale against the Tampa Bay Rays. The 28-year-old has made five appearances with the Bisons this season, posting a 3.18 ERA across 5.2 innings.
Stripling, 32, has been a valuable piece for the Blue Jays in 2022. The 6’3″ hurler has played key roles in both the bullpen and starting rotation, compiling 82.2 innings over 23 appearances. In total, he’s registered a 3.16 ERA, 3.72 xERA, 3.02 FIP and a 1.9 fWAR rating.
The former Los Angeles Dodger, who was acquired by Toronto in 2020, is slated to become a free agent after this season.
On a related note, the Blue Jays also optioned newly-acquired right-hander Mitch White to triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday. The 27-year-old could make his debut on Saturday, which was originally Stripling’s turn in the rotation.
Toronto is currently 12-3 under interim manager John Schneider.
