Brandon Morrow will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery

Leave a comment

Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Padres starter Brandon Morrow has elected to undergo surgery on his right shoulder, a procedure which will end his season. Morrow met with Dr. Neal ElAttrache earlier this week and was diagnosed with an impingement in his shoulder, the same diagnosis he got from Dr. Heinz Hoenecke previously.

Morrow, 31, made only five starts for the Padres this season, compiling a 2.73 ERA with a 23/7 K/BB ratio over 33 innings. He signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the club in December. His next contract will likely be of the minor league variety. Morrow has made 20-plus starts in a season only three times since debuting in 2007.

Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640 South Florida reports that Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna recently suffered a facial injury after his wife allegedly hit him with a soap dish. The incident apparently happened a few weeks ago.

Slater says that Ozuna reported the incident to Miami police and that Ozuna’s wife, Genesis, was arrested and charged with domestic battery. She subsequently pleaded not guilty and was given a stay-away order. Presumably more legal proceedings are in the offing.

The injury itself doesn’t sound serious, but the matter certainly is.
