TORONTO – The Toronto Blue Jays pitching staff was hit with another injury Sunday as the team announced right-handed reliever Tim Mayza had been placed on the the 10-day injured list with left ulnar neuritis.

The 27-year-old last pitched 2/3 innings in the Blue Jays’ 10-3 win against the Boston Red Sox on May 21, striking out two batters and walking one.

Waguepack is 2-6 with a 5.86 ERA through nine starts with the Buffalo Bisons in 2019. He’s walked 21 batters and struck out 44 over 43 innings.
