Morrow to start on DL

Postby OldEnglishZ » Wed Mar 23, 2011 2:56 pm

Rotoworld has a report with forearm inflammation. Anyone hear of arm problems for Morrow this spring? Any previous injuries? I was planning on taking him but now I can afford to save some $

Yup. Just saw the report on ESPN. Forearm inflammation. Not sure how bad it is but the report on Rotoworld and on ESPN both made it sounds like he would miss just one start.

Bruce Walton, the Jays picthing coach, was on the radio earlier today talking about how this was only precautionary and that he should miss only a start. But I don't think they really know it for sure.

On related news, Jo Jo Reyes will take Morrow's spot in the rotation. They will open the season with Romero, Drabek, Cecil, Litsch and Reyes. I have always been a fan of Jo Jo and I think he still has upside.

JoJo is pitching right now against the Yankees and looking pretty good. I've only been sporadically watching at work (trapped here in the snow storm), but it looks like he may get a shot at a temporary spot, and if he does well possibly bump out Litsch when Morrow is ready to return.

Obviously I wish I could say that it's nothing and to only knock Morrow down a notch, but I really get worried when I hear about a power arm that is hitting the DL. They should send him to James Andrews just to be sure. After all, he's been handing out some pretty good news lately for a change.

Oh yea, now he should finally far enough in drafts for me to get him. My first 2 drafts he would always right before I was going to grab him. They are going to limit his innings a little bit this year again so one missed start due to forearm inflamation in March doesn't scare me away at all.

So...Many....K's... :-L
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Yeah I noticed that when I was adjusting my IP for him in my projections. I had 175 IP but couldn't think of a good enough reason to lower it. If he misses one or two starts, they'll likely keep him on schedule for around 175. In an interview yesterday he seemed pretty pissed that they were sending him to the DL because he didn't think it was warranted. So... maybe it's not such a big deal. Can't blame them for being careful though, considering the career path that Dustin McGowan has taken.
