The Toronto Blue Jays placed right-handed starting pitcher Brandon Morrow on the 15-day disabled list Saturday.
Morrow left Tuesday's start after two innings because of right forearm tightness. He is 2-3 with a 5.63 ERA this season.
Toronto called up 40-year-old Ramon Ortiz from Class AAA Buffalo to replace Morrow. Ortiz has a 5.01 ERA in six appearances for the Blue Jays.
The club also sent right-handed starter Ricky Romero and reliever to Chad Jenkins to Buffalo and called up reliever Mickey Storey.
Storey has a 7.37 ERA in two appearances for the Blue Jays this season.
