Pearson pitched Tuesday night for the Buffalo Bisons, striking out eight hitters in 3.2 innings of work. He was held to just one inning in spring training because of a groin injury.
Meanwhile, reliever Rafael Dolis is being placed on the 10-day injured list because of a right calf strain. He was removed from Friday night's game and the Jays were initially hopeful he would be able to avoid a stint on the IL.
Following their series in Houston, the Blue Jays will have an off-day on Monday before heading to Atlanta to take on the Braves Tuesday.
