CHICAGO | Cubs’ Morrow has elbow surgery, likely to start season late
CHICAGO — Cubs closer Brandon Morrow likely will miss the start of the season following arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow last month.
President of baseball operations Theo Epstein says the operation took place Nov. 6.
Signed to a $21 million, two-year contract last December, Morrow led the Cubs with 22 saves and had a 1.47 ERA in 35 games. He did not pitch after July 15 because of a bone bruise in his right elbow.
