Morrow sent downPosted by Paul Singman at 7:01pm
Current Mariners reliever Brandon Morrow is going down to the minor leagues for some time to build up arm strength to return to the majors as a starter, says Mariners Insider. According to the article it says the new M's front office wants to slowly build up his stamina, meaning he may not return to the majors until September, and about a month and a half at the earliest.
This news should come as a blow to Morrow owners who should drop him when he gets sent down sometime next week (except in keeper/dynasty leagues of course). The man who displaced Morrow as the Mariners closer, David Aardsma, was hanging onto the closing job by a thread, but this news increases his chances of keeping the job. Despite a 1.91 ERA and converting eight of nine save opportunities, Aardsma has not been pitching well, made most obvious by his 20 walks in 28 innings this season.
If Aardsma does endure reversal of luck and loses the closer role, I could see the M's resorting to a carousel closer committee since none of their other relievers—Roy Corcoran, Miguel Bautista, Mark Lowe, Sean White—stand out.
