Pearson needs to get into game action over the next four days to be an option for Toronto's postseason roster.
The young right-hander has not pitched since Aug. 18. He went on the injured list shortly after with a right elbow issue.
In his four rookie-season starts, Pearson posted an ERA of 6.61 to go along with a WHIP of 1.53.
The 24-year-old entered the season as one of the top consensus pitching prospects in baseball.
