Corcoran had a 4.83 K/9 and a 4.46 BB/9 last season. Those are scary numbers regardless of his ERA last year.
It does seem that a common theme among possibilities is that they can't find the strikezone. And this could lead to an ugly, ugly bullpen.
I think the only way that Morrow becomes the closer is if they decide that he can't stay healthy as a starter. There is no reason to have him close this year and then move him back to a starter when Josh Fields is ready. This cycle of starter-reliever-starter-reliever-starter abuse has to stop. Especially considering he has a somewhat fragile arm to begin with.
