Bryan Morris has opted to undergo back surgery.

Morris told reporters last week that surgery was probably the only option to repair his lumbar disk herniation, and further testing and exams proved that to be accurate. Marlins manager Don Mattingly said he's hopeful the right-hander can return this season.
May 31 - 4:39 PM

Bryan Morris (back) acknowledged he might need surgery.

In fact, Morris went as far as to say that "surgery is the only option that can fix what is the issue." Manager Don Mattingly agreed that Morris' lumbar disc herniation probably isn't a "15-day thing." All signs are pointing to an extended absence for the 29-year-old.

Marlins placed RHP Bryan Morris on the 15-day disabled list with a lumbar disc herniation.

Nick Wittgren has been called up from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding roster move. Morris also dealt with back problems in 2015 and doesn't carry an exact recovery timetable. It could be a while. He had registered a 3.06 ERA through 17 2/3 innings this year out of the Miami bullpen.
May 26 - 10:57 AM

Marlins and RHP Bryan Morris avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.35 million contract.

Morris put up a 3.14 ERA in 63 innings in his first full season with the Marlins. He'll once again serve in a middle relief role for the Fish in 2016.
Jan 14 - 9:18 PM

Marlins activated RHP Bryan Morris from the 15-day disabled list.

The Marlins sent down Justin Nicolino to clear a spot for him on the active roster. Morris has been sidelined since June 6 with a lower back strain. He had a 3.95 ERA and 24/12 K/BB ratio over 27 1/3 innings prior to hitting the DL.

Bryan Morris (back) could be activated from the disabled list this week.

Morris will make the second of back-to-back appearances with High-A Jupiter on Sunday while on his rehab assignment. It's possible that will be his final hurdle to clear before activation. "Probably after 30 pitches, we'll be able to assess where he is and make sure the quality of his strides are where they need to be," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "He's going back-to-back, which is good. We'll run him out there for two innings. From there, reassess it and make a decision."

Marlins placed RHP Bryan Morris on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Morris suffered the injury Saturday in a relief appearance against the Rockies. He should be ready around the time his 15-day stint is through. Adam Conley is taking over the vacancy in the Marlins' bullpen.

Bryan Morris (back) is headed to the disabled list.

Bryan Morris left Saturday's game against the Rockies with a lower back strain.

Morris allowed one hit in 2/3 of an inning before exiting. The Marlins list him as day-to-day. The right-hander is 3-1 with a 3.95 ERA in 28 relief appearances.

The Marlins have officially shut Bryan Morris (groin) down for the season.

Morris aggravated his right groin injury back on September 9 and the club has decided it's best not to push him to make it back this month. It's an unfortunate ending to what has been a terrific season for the righty, as he posted a 1.82 ERA with 50 strikeouts over 64 1/3 innings.

Bryan Morris might be done for the season after aggravating his right groin injury on September 9.

The Marlins haven't officially ruled him out, but his return isn't looking likely at this point. "I aggravated it pretty good during that game in Milwaukee," Morris said. "In all reality for it to heal all the way up it’s going to take four to six weeks. Obviously we didn’t have four to six weeks at the time. I don’t know where we’re going from here. I just know right now we’re not doing anything." If he's indeed done, Morris ends his season having posted a 1.82 ERA over and a 0.66 mark with the Marlins.

Bryan Morris is dealing with a minor right groin strain.

Morris was sent back to Miami to be examined, and the result was deemed to be good news. He'll likely miss a few days, but it's not expected to require a trip to the disabled list.

Bryan Morris has been sent back to Miami to be examined for hip discomfort.

It's not clear when the injury cropped up. Morris has been excellent since being acquired from the Pirates in June, posting a 0.48 ERA and 34/10 K/BB ratio over 37 2/3 innings. Obviously, it would be a blow to the Marlins' bullpen if he's lost for a significant amount of time.

Marlins acquired RHP Bryan Morris from the Pirates in exchange for the Marlins' Competitive Balance Round A selection in the 2014 Draft.

The pick is the 39th overall selection. Morris holds a 3.46 ERA over 81 relief appearances since the beginning of the 2011 season, but he's also struck out just 57 over 93 2/3 frames and has a 5.01 FIP. Getting a top-40 draft pick for him looks like a wise move on the Pirates' part. Morris will join the Marlins and Monday and will be used in a setup role.
