Blue Jays place CJ Edwards on 10-day IL; Murphy, Bergen re-instated

MLB analyst Tim Kurkjian joins Good Show to discuss the current Blue Jays bullpen woes, and why it's the hardest thing to fix mid-season, and how hard it will be to make the playoffs with a bad bullpen.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed right-handed pitcher CJ Edwards on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain.

In a corresponding move, right-hander Patrick Murphy has been re-instated from the 60-day injured list after suffering a right sprained A/C joint. Lefty Travis Bergen has also been re-instated from the 10-day injured list (left shoulder impingement) and has been optioned to triple-A Buffalo.

Edwards left Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees with left side abdominal discomfort. He was scheduled to get an MRI on Wednesday.

In 5.2 innings pitched this season, Edwards has six strikeouts, a 2.47 WHIP and a 11.12 ERA.

Murphy has pitched 6.0 innings this season, earning five strikeouts, a 1.33 WHIP and a 1.50 ERA. Bergen has a 2-0 record this season, recording a 1.69 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP with six strikeouts in 10.2 innings of work.
