Morrow Unlikely to Start Season in Rotation

Fresh on the heels of Shannon Drayer's report on how Morrow felt after throwing a bullpen session, Larry LaRue expounds on the effects. Morrow's anticipated next start has already been scratched, leaving him weeks behind where he needs to be.

The good news is that, according to Morrow, "they say it's nothing structural, just like a strained flexor bundle." Morrow mentioned in Drayer's piece that he's felt this before but was able to pitch through it because his arm was in mid-season shape. Given that, this doesn't appear to be too serious on the forefront. Then again, I hear flexor bundle and I think Joel Pineiro circa 2004.

Of course, the reasonable among us never expected Morrow to spend the whole season in the rotation and log 200-odd innings. Morrow simply doesn't have enough innings under his belt to have made that a likely target to hit. Still, it's a bit disconcerting to see the flareups begin so soon.

For now, we're in a wait-and-see mode when it comes to the team's plans. Hopefully they do not react in a knee jerk manner and move Morrow back into the bullpen.
