Brandon Morrow shut down at least two more weeks with lingering right shoulder discomfort

An MRI taken Monday night on Brandon Morrow’s throwing shoulder revealed no major structural damage, but the Padres are going to play it safe with the oft-injured starting pitcher

Morrow was all set to return from the disabled list this Friday, but his shoulder flared up on him Sunday in a rehab start at Double-A San Antonio. The 30-year-old posted an impressive 2.73 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 23/7 K/BB ratio over his first 33 innings this season for the Padres, but he’s been on the shelf now since May 3.

Morrow signed a one-year, $2.5 million free agent contract with San Diego in mid-December. It includes around $5 million in performance-based bonuses, but he’s doubtful to trigger many of those now.

The right-hander threw just 33 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays in 2014 and 54 1/3 innings in 2013.

The Padres were hoping to bring right-hander Brandon Morrow back from the disabled list this Friday, but there has been a hiccup in those plans.

Morrow, who landed on the disabled list a month ago with shoulder inflammation, was forced to exit a rehab start yesterday with Double-A San Antonio due to renewed discomfort. According to the Associated Press, Padres manager Bud Black said tonight that he returned to San Diego to undergo an MRI.

The 30-year-old Morrow has dealt with all sorts of injuries in recent years, but the Padres gave him a one-year, $2.5 million deal over the winter and he had a 2.73 ERA with a 23/7 K/BB ratio in 33 innings over his first five starts prior to landing on the disabled list.

The announcement comes from Corey Brock, the Padres beat writer for MLB.com …

Morrow held a potent Rockies lineup to two runs over six innings on Saturday, improving to 2-0 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 23/7 K/BB ratio in 33 innings this season. He has a long and loaded history of injuries, but his shoulder hasn’t been an issue since 2010. Maybe it won’t be too long of an absence. The 30-year-old righty was looking like a tremendous offseason find for the Padres on a one-year, $2.5 million free agent deal.
