Morrow Has Setback
Larry Stone fills us in on Brandon Morrow not feeling very good after today’s bullpen session. For the second time in a row, his scheduled Cactus League start on Friday has been scratched, and at this point, he’s questionable for opening day.
At this point, it’s probably likely that Ryan Rowland-Smith will move into his rotation spot, and Morrow starts the year on the DL. Even if it’s not a serious injury, there’s no reason to rush Morrow to be ready for the first week of the season, and the team has the depth to let him take it slow.
Let’s hope it’s nothing that lingers long term. But for now, we probably take Morrow out of the projected starting rotation, at least to start the year.
