Brandon Morrow to be shut down for at least two weeks

Kris Budden, who is a sideline reporter for the Padres, tweeted "Brandon Morrow will be shut down for a couple weeks with shoulder soreness. Soreness came back in his last rehab start."

Fantasy Impact

This is obviously a step backwards for Morrow and his owners. The main beneficiary is Odrisamer Despaigne who will remain in the rotation for a few more starts at the very least. With this latest setback, it is reasonable to start searching the FA/waiver wire to see if there is a solid pitcher to replace Morrow with.

Brandon Morrow to have an MRI

Bud Black is reported to have said that Brandon Morrow will have an MRI to check out the right shoulder discomfort that lead to his early departure during Sunday's rehab start.

Fantasy Impact

This represents a setback to the plan to have him rejoin the rotation. It is prudent to wait for the results of exam before speculating but I am a fantasy correspondent so I will take a guess and say he will probably not immediately join the Padres in time for the next time his spot in the rotation comes up.

Brandon Morrow leaves rehab start on Sunday with shoulder discomfort

Brandon Morrow left his rehab start in Triple-A Sunday in the third inning. The reports give the reason as Morrow experiencing right shoulder discomfort.

Fantasy Impact

He was scheduled to return to the Padres rotation if all went well on Sunday. If he can not make his next start with San Diego, then Odrisamer Despaigne will likely be the choice. We should wait until more is known before making judgments on his fantasy value.

Brandon Morrow could be nearing his return

Brandon Morrow pitched four shutout innings Wednesday for San Antonio and is scheduled to throw another one Sunday. He threw 54 pitches and aims to throw 75-80 on Sunday. He is reported to be feeling fine after the outing and is said to have had fine stuff.

Fantasy Impact

This is very encouraging news, both for Padres fans and fantasy owners of Morrow. When he returns to the majors, he is supposed to rejoin the starting rotation, with the most likely outcome being Odrisamer Despaigne moving to long relief.

Brandon Morrow continues to impress and gets the win vs Dodgers

Brandon Morrow throws seven strong innings while allowing just one run on five hits in the Padres 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Morrow continues to impress in the back end of the rotation. "I feel like I've been throwing the ball really well," Morrow said. "To give the team a chance to win and log innings, that's what we're out there to do." "I'm healthy now, so it feels good to go out there and pitch good ballgames," Morrow said. Padres manager Bud Black knowing his bullpen needed a rest, praised Morrow on his outing. "Our bullpen had been stretched the last four or five days, and today's outing was critical," Padres manager Bud Black said. "That was huge today what Brandon did for us."

Fantasy Impact

Morrow's ERA drops some more, to 2.62. Four strikeouts may not be a dominant performance but allowing just one run on five hits does qualify as such. Morrow at the back end is a solid bet. Keep him active as long as he stays healthy for he will only get better as the months move on.
