Robert Murray, formerly of The Athletic, reports that the Cubs are releasing Brandon Morrow.
Baseball America also has Morrow's release listed in their transactions page. The right-hander was re-signed as a non-roster invite in December, but dealt with a Grade 1 calf tear that kept him from throwing for the final two weeks before the COVID-19 shutdown. The hard-throwing right-hander has dealt with a bevy of injuries in his career, and while this could just end up being a logistical move, it's also possible that Morrow's time with the Cubs is coming to a disappointing end. Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that Morrow underwent a procedure for a pinched nerve, and does plan on pitching during the shortened 2020 campaign. Jul 08 6:20 pm (EST)
