TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays have placed right-handed pitcher Ross Stripling on the 15-day injured list with a right hip strain.
The move is retroactive to Sunday.
Stripling last pitched in Toronto's 5-3 win over Detroit on Saturday. He pitched four scoreless innings before being removed after loading the bases with none out, then giving up a sacrifice fly to Kody Clemens. He did not factor in the decision.
A spot starter earlier in the season, Stripling had been a regular in the rotation since June 6 after Hyun Jin Ryu was put on the injury list with an elbow ailment. Ryu has since shut down for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June.
Stripling had a 4-2 record in 10 starts after taking over from Ryu. Overall he has a 5-3 mark with a 3.16 earned-run average, 67 strikeouts and 15 walks in 2022.
The Blue Jays recalled right-hander Matt Peacock from Triple-A Buffalo and made him active ahead of their game Wednesday night at Tampa Bay.
Right-hander Mitch White, acquired by the Blue Jays at Tuesday's trade deadline, was optioned to Buffalo.
