TORONTO -- Injured Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow doesnt have a timeline in place for his return to the lineup. Karim Rekik Jersey . Hes just happy to have his uniform on and be back with teammates after a long stint away from the club while rehabilitating a finger injury. Morrow returned to Rogers Centre on Tuesday and made 25 throws from 60 feet before the team took batting practice. It was the latest step in his recovery after suffering a torn tendon sheath in his throwing hand on May 2. "Its not 100 per cent but its not painful," Morrow said. "Its just kind of stiff from not really using it for six weeks. It actually feels better after I throw. It loosens it up and the range of motion gets better. "So its been great. Throwing has been good for the last week." Morrow had been rehabilitating in Arizona, spending up to two hours a day doing grip exercises to slowly strengthen his index finger. "Theres a lot of pinching and a lot of Play-Doh squeezing," he said. "Thats it really." Over the weekend, he took another step and started throwing from 45 feet. While the sessions would barely get his shoulder warm, Morrow understands its all part of the slow, long process of regaining strength and mobility. "It can heal back and thats what were hoping for," he said. "If there was no chance of it doing that, then I would have just had surgery that first week. But theres obviously a good chance of rehabbing it naturally I guess, and avoiding surgery and being healthy and getting it back to where I need it to be." Morrow, whos 1-2 with a 5.93 earned-run average this season, had his finger completely immobilized for two weeks after the injury. He couldnt lift upper-body weights for about four weeks until he felt comfortable gripping things again. Morrow wore a custom brace on his finger while throwing Tuesday. "Theres no doubt that if (his recovery) continues the way it has been that Ill pitch again this year," he said. "I cant put a date on it. They just put together a calendar for me, which I havent even seen. This is my fifth day throwing so its too early to say." The 29-year-old native of Santa Rosa, Calif., was tabbed to be a key part of the Toronto rotation this season. His potential return could give the first-place Blue Jays a nice boost for the stretch drive. "Thats what Im looking to do is to come in at a really crucial point in the season and be able to pitch the way that I have in the past and contribute and add something to the team," Morrow said. There were hugs and handshakes all around Tuesday afternoon as he caught up with teammates in the clubhouse and dugout before Tuesday nights game against the New York Yankees. "I think it was for my own sanity to come back," Morrow joked. "But yeah, Im to the point where I dont need the hand therapy three times a week anymore, where the rehab is more now throwing and getting back into a regular baseball throwing program routine. "It makes sense to make that transition from doing the small stuff to more of the baseball stuff. So it makes sense to come back." Quincy Promes Jersey .

LUCIE, Fla.Ottawa Senators fans will be celebrating more than Canada Day this weekend, as team captain Daniel Alfredsson will be playing another season in the nations capital. Alfredssons agent, J.P. Barry, confirmed the news to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger on Friday morning. "He brings to the table not only talent, but the intangibles are just as important for the most part: leadership, character, the willingness to work with young players," Senators general manager Bryan told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com. "Its nice to hear that he wants to play. Now its just a matter of getting a contract done with him." Murray also said he is ready to get to work on a new deal for his captain. "We were informed late this morning by Daniels agent, JP Barry, that Daniel has made a decision and is committed to play next year for the Senators," Murray said Friday in a statement. "We now will begin the process of negotiating a contract, which we hope to have completed in the near future." Swedish television station SVT World spoke to Alfredsson this week. "Ive never been so tireed after a season earlier, even though it was so short," Alfredsson told the station. Luciano Narsingh Jersey. "I needed some time to think about the future, but the important thing is that the urge is there." Alfredsson returned to Sweden with his family following their postseason exit. He met with Murray prior to leaving and said he would likely give him a decision on his future by Draft Day. "I came home to Sweden on Monday and felt I can do this one more summer," he said. "I feel a little excited to get going and start exercising. "The body has felt good lately. I missed a game this season and that was because I had a cold. In this way it has been positive, I have been freshened and it has affected my decision." The 40-year-old, whos an unrestricted free agent, must now negotiate a new contract with Murray. If the two sides do agree on a new deal, Murray cant officially re-sign him until the free agency window opens July 5. Alfredsson led the Senators in scoring through the playoffs with four goals and 10 points and was third during the regular season with 10 goals and 16 assists.
