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."

Jun 6 - 8:20 PM

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.

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.

Pirates recalled RHP Bryan Morris from Triple-A Indianapolis.

He takes the roster spot of Chris Leroux, who was designated for assignment. A former first-round pick, Morris was terrific last season in his first full year as a reliever, posting a 2.67 ERA and 79/17 K/BB ratio over 81 Triple-A innings while also showing well in his brief time with the big club. He'll work the middle innings.
