Marcum demoted to work on things

August 23, 2008

The Toronto Blue Jays have sent RHP Shaun Marcum to Triple A Syracuse shortly after his poor outing against the Boston Red Sox. Marcum struggled with his control in the loss and only managed to work 3 2/3 innings. Toronto expects Marcum to return but wanted to give the youngster a little more time to straighten out his mechanics after a recent right elbow injury.

To replace Marcum in the rotation LHP John Parrish has been re-called from Syracuse. Parrish is 1-0 with a 4.05 ERA in 4 starts earlier this season for the Blue Jays.
