Cubs Morrow has elbow surgery
CHICAGO (AP) – Closer Brandon Morrow likely will miss the start of the season for the Chicago Cubs following arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow last month. Chicago president of baseball operations Theo Epstein revealed Morrow’s operation took place on Nov. 6. The Cubs waited to make an announcement because Morrow’s recovery will impact how they fill out the bullpen. Morrow led Chicago with 22 saves and had a 1.47 ERA in 35 games after signing a $21-million, two-year contract as a free agent.
