Morrow (elbow) relayed Wednesday that he recently underwent a minor nerve procedure, but he expects to be fully healthy at some point later this season and hopes to catch on with another team, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Though Morrow doesn't expect to miss much time after another setback with his right elbow, he wasn't on track to be ready for Opening Day in late July, which likely explains why the Cubs released him from his minor-league deal Wednesday. Set to turn 36 years old later this month and having not pitched in a regular-season game in the majors or minors since July 15, 2018, Morrow's career looks to be hanging by a thread.
