Padres SP Brandon Morrow said he feels good after simulated game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Padres pitcher Brandon Morrow threw 45 pitches during a simulated game Thursday and he said the outing went well, reports MLB.com.

"It felt good,'' Morrow said. "It's all been positive."

Morrow tossed three 15-pitch innings during the simulated game and manager Bud Black was pleased with what he saw from Morrow.

"I thought he did well," Black said."I thought his stuff, in a situation like this, was really good. His fastball had some good life to it and his secondary pitches had sharpness, his changeup was good."

Morrow is on the 15-day DL with right shoulder inflammation, but he said the shoulder is feeling good.

"This is the best [my shoulder] has felt all year,'' Morrow said.

If he does not suffer any setbacks over the weekend, Morrow could begin pitching in rehabilitation games next week.

Morrow is 2-0 with a 2.73 ERA in 33 innings of work this season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Padres' Brandon Morrow to return to mound Tuesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Brandon Morrow has start pushed back due to blister


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Padres starting pitcher Brandon Morrow will have his scheduled start pushed back because of a blister on his right ring finger. Instead, Odrisamer Despaigne will take the mound on Thursday for the Padres, per U-T San Diego.

Manager Bud Black told reporters that Morrow's injury should not impact the fifth-starter race much.

"I don't think it impacts it a lot," Black said. "I think Brandon will be out there soon enough to show what he can do.

"There's still a couple weeks for him to build his pitch count. I don't think it does anything to the competition for now for that spot. We've seen a lot from those guys. They're both going to pitch some more this spring. It's a little bit of a setback for Brandon because it takes him off his schedule a little bit. But that's part of what happens in training camp."


Padres SP Brandon Morrow dealing with blister


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Padres starting pitcher Brandon Morrow has been dealing with a blister on his throwing hand following his last spring outing Saturday against the Diamondbacks, per U-T San Diego. He threw in the bullpen Monday and for now is lined up to pitch Thursday.

Morrow, who is 1-1 with a 4.26 ERA in four spring outings (three starts), is vying for the final spot in the team's rotation.


Padres Bud Black choosing between Brandon Morrow, Odrisamer Despaigne


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Padres manager Bud Black has yet to name the fifth starter in the team's rotation at this point of the spring, per UT San Diego.

The battle for the role boils down to two right-handers, Brandon Morrow and Odrisamer Despaigne.

"Still close," Black said of the race to round out the rotation. "They're both very good pitches. We'll continue to evaluate and watch them, but those guys are competing hard. It's probably a better question to answer late in March. They're doing great. It's a good competition."

Morrow struggled on Saturday in 3 2/3 innings, giving up five runs. Despaigne came in after him and yielded one earned run in 3 1/3 innings pitched.

Black liked Morrow's velocity but thought he struggled with placement.

"I thought his overall stuff is what you're looking for -- you look for velocity, you look for sharpness of pitches, you look for the secondary (pitches)," Black said. "He just left too many pitches up out over the plate. They got some balls in the gap, and we couldn't track them down."

Despaigne threw 30 strikes on the day against 24 balls.

"Despaigne got to a pitch count, showed the assortment of his pitches," Black said. "They nicked him for a couple of runs, but again, what you're looking for, we saw some things that were positive."


Padres' Brandon Morrow throws four shutout innings Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Padres pitcher Brandon Morrow continued to show why he could win the fifth spot in the rotation this season. Monday, Morrow threw four shutout innings, including sending down eight straight Cubs' batters. He's allowed just one earned run in three starts this spring.

"All you can do is go out and pitch well," Morrow said to MLB.com. "That's the only thing you can do to secure a spot and it's all I'm trying to do. I've been throwing well, I've been feeling good and my arm's healthy. I'm throwing all four of my pitches for strikes."


Padres' Despaigne, Morrow impress in bid to win fifth spot


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne and Brandon Morrow impressed during their first taste of spring action, according to MLB.com.

"I thought they threw the ball well," said Padres manager Bud Black. Both Despaigne and Morrow are competing for the fifth spot in the team's rotation. While Despaigne got the start, Morrow came on and pitched two innings in relief.

Both players were effective, keeping the White Sox off the board for four innings. Despaigne struck out two batters to Morrow's one, but they posted identical stat lines otherwise. 

Despite the strong performances, Black said it was far too early to draw any conclusions about who will open the season in the rotation.


Padres' Black on Morrow: 'We like what we've seen'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Padres manager Bud Black has been impressed by how pitcher Brandon Morrow has handled his various ailments as well as his overall approach to the mound, MLB.com reports.

"I like his delivery, I like his arm action, I like his stuff," Black said. "First of all, I think he's got a good head. We're still getting to know him. We've only known him less than two weeks. But we like what we've seen."

Morrow has made just 16 starts across the last two season while dealing with forearm and hand injuries. As a result, he says he's begun doing a "pre-hab" program, which is "basically doing what you're doing in rehab, but doing it before you get hurt."

Morrow is competing for a rotation spot, but he doesn't look at the early portion of camp as a competion.

"The last three starts are when it will be more competition mode, I guess," Morrow said. "Right now, I'm still trying to get my arm and body in shape and easing into that. I'm not going to try and go out and blow it out in live batting practice ... Rather than just trying to strike everybody out, I'm going out there and doing some pitching. It's still the same repertoire and still mostly the same approach. But it's taking some speed off here, adding it here."

Morrow posted ERAs of 5.63 and 5.67 in his last two seasons in Toronto while battling through injuries.


Black: Morrow, Despaigne might have slight edge for No. 5 SP role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) While Padres manager Bud Black is not ready to put odds on the competition for the final spot in the team's rotation, he did seem to indicate Brandon Morrow and Odrisamer Despaigne might be a little ahead of Robbie Erlin and Matt Wisler , per U-T San Diego.

"I think we're going to look at them all, but Morrow and Despaigne have a little something to them," Black said. "It doesn't hurt Matt to go back to the minors. Robbie Erlin was in our rotation last year, made some starts and pitched well at times. He's still developing. I don't know if there's a front-runner, but you can maybe say that Morrow and Despaigne are out there just a touch."
