USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NL WEST -

The pow­er­ful right-han­der, 33, has be­come an at­trac­tive al­ter­na­tive to Pe­dro Baez as a setup man to closer Ken­ley Jansen. Mor­row, in com­par­i­son to Baez, is less de­pen­dent on luck and field­ers. He was av­er­ag­ing 10 strike­outs per nine in­nings and had al­lowed no home runs in 351⁄ in­nings this sea­son 3 through Sept. 3.
