Ryan Joseph Borucki, born March 31, 1994, is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Major League Baseball Toronto Blue Jays (MLB).

Borucki was drafted in the 15th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball draft by the Toronto Blue Jays and assigned to the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League Blue Jays. Borucki pitched six innings in the GCL, going 1–0 with a 3.00 ERA before suffering Tommy John surgery and missing the whole 2013 season.

He pitched for the Rookie Advanced Bluefield Blue Jays and the Short Season-A Vancouver Canadians in 2014, compiling a 3–2 record, a 2.37 ERA, and 52 strikeouts in 57 innings pitched.

Borucki was recalled from Buffalo by the Blue Jays on June 26, 2018. That night, he made his Major League debut against the Astros at Minute Maid Park, suffering the loss after allowing two runs on six hits in six innings with three strikeouts.

Borucki became the franchise’s eleventh pitcher to throw at least six innings and allow two or fewer runs in his debut, and the first since Zach Stewart in 2011. Borucki was placed on the 60-day disabled list on July 6, 2021, due to a left forearm flexor strain.

On July 16, Borucki was activated off the injured list. He “intentionally” hit Kevin Kiermaier of the Tampa Bay Rays on a pitch that cleared the benches on September 22, 2021.

He, along with manager Charlie Montoyo, were both ejected, and Borucki was suspended for 3 days. He appealed, and his suspension was reduced to 2 games. On March 22, 2022, Borucki signed a $0.825 million contract with the Blue Jays, avoiding salary arbitration.

There are no details about his marital status. He may be married or unmarried. There are also no rumors about his wife and girlfriend.
