Somewhat surprised that nobody has posted this anywhere on here, but, according to Baker, McLaren and Co. is starting to entertain the idea of moving Morrow ::gasp:: in to the rotation.
"We have thought about it,'' he said. "We haven't come to a conclusion yet, but that is a possibility.''
Morrow could either go back to Class AAA to begin the transition, or work out of Seattle's bullpen in the majors.
"There are a couple of schools of thought,'' McLaren said. "That he could be like Chamberlain and work on it here.''
I don't see why they would be throwing Morrow back to AAA in order to stretch him out when the team is in dire straits as it is.. Why not keep him at the major league level and let him work it out up here? What's the worst that can happen? (barring injury which would happen in AAA too if it's gonna happen) Morrow fails to go 5 innings? He loses? Yeaaa... what's new?
