Standout but injured Cubs closer Brandon Morrow has been shut down from throwing. However, good news might soon be on the horizon.
According to reports, Cubs President of Operations Theo Epstein told reporters Tuesday that Morrow got an injection of synthetic lubricant in his elbow Monday.
Morrow will rest his elbow for two weeks and then resume his rehab. The new timeline is near the All-Star break, and that is very optimistic.
In 2018, he had a 1.47 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 3.44 K/BB ratio in 35 appearances. He is in the last year of a two-year, $21 million contract with the Cubs.
