Padres | Brandon Morrow could return in 2016

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 10:17:14 -0700

San Diego Padres assistant general manager Josh Stein said the team is open to bringing SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) back next year. "I think it's early, but we acquired him knowing that there was a risk of an injury and the contract was structured to take that into account," Stein said. "I certainly wouldn't say that there's not an opportunity to explore something similar going forward." Morrow went 2-0 with a 2.73 ERA in five starts this season.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could return to San Diego on an incentive-laden contract similar to what Josh Johnson received after missing the entire 2014 season. He should be dumped in all seasonal leagues and there is no guarantee that he will be at 100 percent by the time spring training rolls around.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to have surgery

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:51:51 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will have surgery in Los Angeles Wednesday, Aug. 19, to fix a right shoulder impingement. Morrow's recovery will last three to four months.

Fantasy Tip: You can officially dump Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in any deep leagues if you were still stashing him. There's no guarantee that he'll be good to go for spring training next year, either, given his extensive injury history.

Padres | Brandon Morrow elects surgery

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 16:43:20 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) has elected to have season-ending shoulder surgery in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow was pretty effective in his short window this season. If you were stashing him in NL-only formats, it's time to cut bait.

Padres | Brandon Morrow likely finished for 2015

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 15:11:45 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) has an impingement of his right shoulder. He could undergo season-ending surgery, which would hold him out of action for three to four months.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could also attempt to rehab the injury, but it is likely he is finished for 2015. Consider him a desperation stash in deep leagues, and there will likely be a followup announcement on what the next step is for Morrow.

Padres | Brandon Morrow with another setback

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:33:33 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) won't make his next scheduled rehab start because of shoulder soreness. He is headed to San Diego to visit with a team doctor.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow made just five starts for the Friars before going on the DL this season, and he hasn't pitched in the majors since. Another setback could mean we won't see him at least until September, if at all. There's little chance that Morrow contributes significantly for the Padres or fantasy owners in 2015.

Padres | Brandon Morrow continues progression

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:17:31 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, July 7, and he is scheduled to pitch a simulated game Saturday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) remains a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, but FantayScore players will want to take a wait-and-see approach with Morrow. Allow him to prove himself in a start or two before utilizing him in contests. Continue to check back for updates on Morrow's return timeline and progress.

Padres | Brandon Morrow rehab update

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 12:06:56 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday, July 4, and could throw a simulated game next week in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could begin a minor league rehab assignment not long after throwing a simulated game. He remains a candidate to be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy baseball leagues. FantasyScore owners should wait one or two starts after he is activated from the disabled list before considering him for their lineups.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to throw this weekend

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:01:39 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) is expected to throw a simulated game Saturday, June 27, or Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the final step before Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) begins a minor league rehab assignment. He should be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues but FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first start or two immediately after he's activated from the disabled list.

Padres | Brandon Morrow to 60-day DL

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:45:23 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is slowing working his way back from shoulder inflammation, and he hopes to throw another bullpen session this weekend after having a rehab stint halted. At this point, Morrow is nothing more than a desperation stash in the majority of formats, and he cannot be trusted at FantasyScore until he returns and proves his health and ability in a start or two.
