I play in a Dynasty league with minor league and prospect keepers. We are allowed 3 prospect keepers but must meet certain guidlines. A team in my league just dropped Marrow and I was wondering peoples thoughts on him. Is he going to start at some point for the mariners: ie Wainwright or is he a middle relief pitcher for life? Would you pick him up as a prospect keeper? Right now I have Hochevar, Brandon Wood and Aybar (Hoping that he gets traded). Thoughts would be great.

I don't think he's going to be starting anytime this year,
but there are many people who see him being a very dominant closer.

Predicting what Seattle will do with him is almost a waste of time.

Its Morrow not Marrow, but I thought I remembered hearing or reading that the Mariners wanted him to become a starter down the road. I dont think that Iwould keep him over some of your other prospects but he is definitely someone to keep an eye on.

I think they expect him to be a starter, but are using the long relief to break him into the majors.

So true. Who the hell knows what they're going to do? But the chances of him starting this year are very slim. Ideally, he'd be in AA right now extending his arm and getting used to being a starter. But it's the Mariners, so screw the future. (F***!!)

They want to groom him as a starter, but he will need a few more pitches. Right now, all he's throwing is a fastball, and he can't control it well. I've never played in a dynasty league, but I can tell you: I think Morrow will be very good, but I can't tell you when. Not this year.

Good luck.

Hey, if Seattle hadn't traded thier two best setup guys and possibly future closers in Soriano and Fruto, Morrow would be in the minors starting. But they did and left themselves with nobody besides Putz worth a darn in the pen.
