Back to Mariners news. The Mariners will shut down Morrow for a few days to rest his tired arm. Morrow will play catch tomorrow, and then see how it goes. Morrow's case doesn't appear to be very serious, but without him, the Mariners will have a very thin bullpen. Mark Lowe, Arthur Rhodes, Chris Reitsma, Mark Lowe, and even Jon Huber are all coming off of injuries, and nobody knows yet what they will do to start the season.
The rest of the bulpen appears to be fine though. JJ Putz doesn't have any injuries reported. Eric O'Flaherty, Sean Green, Ryan Rowland-Smith, RA Dickey, Cha Seung Baek, among others all appear to be healthy. The M's are already without set-up man George Sherrill who was traded in the Erik Bedard deal, and will rely heavily on Brandon Morrow in the eighth inning role. The pressure will be even greater if whoever breaks camp as the team's left handed set-up man doesn't do too well. All I can says is, I hope that Morrow will be fine, and the Angel's injuries will mount up.
