EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty will take the roster spot of Buddy Baumann, who was optioned in a corresponding move Saturday. Morrow has primarily worked out of the bullpen in Triple-A this season, notching 11 strikeouts in 11.0 innings. He figures to assume a bullpen role while with the Padres.

Morrow (shoulder) has returned to Triple-A El Paso after a seven-week absence, U-T San Diego reports.

EDGE Analysis

"There have been some conversations about whether he's going to be in a starting role or a relief role right now," Padres manager Andy Green said. "I think that conversation's still ongoing." Given his lengthy injury history, a bullpen role seems like the most likely outcome, but Morrow made a two-inning appearance in his final rehab outing on July 3.

Morrow (shoulder) was transferred to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Morrow has been out since May 9 with shoulder fatigue after experiencing numerous setbacks with his shoulder last season before undergoing surgery in August of 2015. Before he went down this season, Morrow had accumulated a 7.31 ERA in 32 innings of work spread across three levels of the Padres' minor leagues. With his transfer from extended spring training to El Paso, the hope remains that he could ultimately make his way back to the majors at some point this year.

Morrow has been shut down due to renewed shoulder fatigue, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The last time Morrow pitched in a competitive environment was May 9, when he tossed six innings of three-run ball for Triple-A El Paso. Morrow experienced several setbacks with his shoulder last year before ultimately undergoing surgery. Still, it sounds like the Padres aren't willing to cut ties just yet, as there's talk that the two sides could push back his June 1 opt-out date.

Morrow (shoulder) gave up four runs on five hits and two walks to go along with three strikeouts in 5.1 innings pitched in a rehab start at high Single-A Lake Elsinore on Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrow got off to a great start, tossing three shutout innings of work before getting roughed up in the fourth and fifth innings. It's a good sign that the 31-year-old was effective early on, and it is entirely possible that the runs came as a result of fatigue. More information regarding his health should be released soon, but he seems to be getting close to full strength.

Morrow could start the season on the disabled list, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrow had shoulder surgery in October, but has been extremely limited in spring training thus far and will not be ready for major league game situations to start the season. This will make it even tougher for him to garner a major league roster spot, as his non-roster invitee status already clouded his organizational position to begin with.

The Padres paid Morrow (shoulder) a retention bonus Tuesday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrow's minor league deal forced San Diego to decide by Tuesday whether to release him or pay a retention bonus to stay with the club, and they chose the latter option. The 31-year-old is still recovering from last August's shoulder surgery and will stay in Arizona once the regular season begins.

Morrow (shoulder) is scheduled to throw in a minor-league game Sunday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morrow, who was brought into Padres camp as a non-roster invitee, was limited to just five starts with the team last season before requiring season-ending shoulder surgery. The procedure resulted in a delayed start to the spring for Morrow, who likely faces long odds to win a rotation spot out of camp. However, if Morrow endures no setbacks with the shoulder once spring training draws to a close, he could be a candidate to join the 25-man roster later in the season if he elects to remain in the organization.
