Montoyo said that Anderson suffered the injury a couple of days ago. When asked whether Anderson’s absence would open up a spot for Ryan Borucki or Nate Pearson, Montoyo said he will leave it an open competition.
“I love the fact that all these guys know they are competing,” Montoyo said. “We’re building them all, so they’re all going to have a chance to compete. We’ll see where we go a week and a half from now.”
Anderson was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Milwaukee Brewers this past off-season. In 32 games with the Brewers during the 2019 season, the 32-year-old had an 8-4 record with a 4.21 ERA and 124 strikeouts in 139 innings pitched.
