Brandon Morrow headed to disabled list with oblique strain

7 Comments

Tests taken Tuesday afternoon on Brandon Morrow’s left oblique confirmed what pretty much everyone expected: he has a strain, and is going to be placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.

This according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.

Morrow suffered the injury just nine pitches into his outing Monday night against the Nationals. He seems likely to miss at least three weeks, and could be out for over a month if the strain is at all severe.

The 27-year-old righty has posted a superb 3.01 ERA and 1.00 WHIP ratio in 77 2/3 innings this season.
