    • Dodgers' Brandon Morrow: Converts save Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morrow struck out two batters over a perfect inning to convert the save in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Giants. Kenley Jansen was getting extra rest after converting consecutive saves Thursday and Friday, opening the door for Morrow to pick up his second save of the season. The 33-year-old has elevated himself into a setup role after posting a sparkling 2.11 ERA through 42.2 innings this season. The Dodgers may opt to give their closer extra rest with nothing left to play for in the final week of the regular season, so Morrow could wind up seeing another save opportunity or two down the stretch.

    • Morrow should see increased hold opportunities with Pedro Baez (manager's decision) being held out of action for a couple of games, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The 32-year-old was already pitching his way into a larger role after posting a 2.21 ERA and 5.8 K/BB ratio through 42 appearances, but with Baez out of the picture, Morrow clearly becomes the top option for hold chances -- and potential vulture saves -- in Los Angeles.

    • Dodgers' Brandon Morrow: Available Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morrow (back) is available to pitch Thursday against the Rockies, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. A back issue sidelined Morrow for several days, but he's been given the green light to return, meaning the Dodgers' bullpen will be pretty much at full strength for the start of the series. Morrow has pitched very well this season and has been trusted more in higher-leverage spots lately (six holds since the All-Star break).

    • Dodgers' Brandon Morrow: Out again Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Manager Dave Roberts said Morrow (back) is unavailable to pitch Wednesday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. Morrow apparently told McCullough that he would be available prior to Roberts ruling him out, so the issue doesn't appear to be anything overly serious. Look for him to reclaim his role as one of the Dodgers' primary setup men once he returns, which will likely be in the coming days.

    • Dodgers' Brandon Morrow: Dealing with back issue
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morrow was unavailable to pitch Tuesday due to a minor back injury, J.P. Hoornstra of The Orange County Register reports. The Dodgers could have used Morrow in an extra-inning loss to the Diamondbacks, but he wasn't healthy enough to make an appearance. It doesn't sound like the veteran reliever's back issue is a serious one, but the club didn't provide a timetable for his return. Morrow has posted a 2.55 ERA and 5.0 K/BB ratio while serving as one of manager Dave Roberts' top right-handed options out of the bullpen.
