Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will receive a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache this week.
Morrow was scratched from his rehab start last Thursday due to more shoulder discomfort. A subsequent exam by Padres team physician Dr. Heinz Hoenecke on Friday resulted in a diagnosis of shoulder inflammation, which is what Morrow has been dealing with for three months. However, he wants to get another opinion to see if anything else is going on. The right-hander would seem to be a long shot to pitch for the Padres again this season. Aug 2 - 1:19 PM

Date:

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will not make his scheduled rehab start on Thursday.

He's going to visit Dr. Heinz Hoenecke in San Diego instead. Morrow allowed two runs over 2 1/3 innings last Saturday at Triple-A El Paso and came out of the appearance with more shoulder discomfort. The right-hander has been out since early May and might have to be written off for the rest of the 2015 season.

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) allowed three hits and two earned runs over 2 1/3 innings Saturday in his first rehab start with Triple-A El Paso.

Morrow sat 92-95 mph with his fastball and topped out at 99 mph, but the results weren't all that great. The oft-injured right-hander is probably going to make several rehab starts before he is again considered for a rotation spot in San Diego. Morrow has been out since early May with a shoulder issue.

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso this weekend.

Morrow was cleared for game action after getting through another bullpen session Wednesday with no issues. Out since early May with shoulder issues, Morrow is expected to need most, if not all, of his allotted 30 rehab days. That puts him on track to return in late August if all goes well.

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) threw a simulated game on Monday.

Assuming he gets through it with no issues, he'll be cleared to resume a rehab assignment. Morrow is expected to need most, if not all, of his allotted 30 rehab days, so he likely won't be ready to rejoin the Padres' rotation until late August in a best-case scenario.
Jul 20 - 6:32 PM

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will resume a rehab assignment this week.

Morrow is ready for game action after getting through a 45-pitch simulated game on Saturday with no issues. "I thought he threw the ball well," Padres interim manager Pat Murphy said. "Considering he hasn't been out facing hitters in a long time, I thought he competed well. He wasn't real, real sharp, but I think he's ready for a rehab assignment. ... We haven't decided exactly where." Morrow is expected to need most, if not all, of his allotted 30 rehab days, so he likely won't be ready to rejoin the Padres' rotation until mid-August in a best-case scenario.
Jul 12 - 10:12 AM

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) threw 40 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.

The next step in his recovery is to throw a simulated game in Pittsburgh next week, and as long as everything goes well, he'll then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. Barring any setbacks, he could return to the rotation before the end of July.
Jul 4 - 1:36 PM

Jun 23 - 8:54 PM

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) has been shut down for the next two weeks.

It appears that the MRI on Morrow's shoulder didn't reveal any structural damage, but the Padres will give him a couple weeks of rest. The right-hander has been out since early May with the ailment and, given his injury history, it's hard to imagine a quick turnaround here.
Jun 9 - 6:30 PM

Brandon Morrow has been sent to San Diego to undergo an MRI on his right shoulder.

Morrow was forced to leave his second rehab start with Double-A San Antonio on Sunday due to discomfort in the shoulder. We'll have to see what the exam says, but there can't be much optimism given Morrow's injury history. He got off to a great start before the shoulder issues cropped up, posting a 2.73 ERA over five starts.
Jun 8 - 7:37 PM
