Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times and others are reporting that the MRI of J.J. Putz ’s right elbow revealed no structural damage, but Dr. Edward Khalfayan diagnosed him with Ulnar nerve irritation and Triceps tendon inflammation that are results of an elbow hyperextension.
The good news is that the Ulnar Collateral Ligament appears to be uninvolved, as well as the wrist flexor muscle groups. The not-so-good news is that irritated nerves typically take more than a few days of rest to subside, so while they are holding out hope that he will be fine by early next week, I would hedge my bets and say that they’ll take the safe route here and place him on the DL at that point. Recovery from ulnar neuritis can often by slow and incomplete, and nerve tissue is easily exacerbated. Why risk further damage? Just let it rest, then he should be good to go.

I guess I don't know why a lot of people have been saying that Morrow won't be getting the save opps...he got the first one when Putz first was hurt and he's got sick #'s so far...my money's on Morrow getting a handful of SV while Putz is out.
