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. Sep 19 - 4:28 PM

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 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.

A Future's Game participant last season, Morris is coming off a nice 2010 campaign and will be getting his first taste of Triple-A. Owens had an outside shot at a rotation spot after a terrific year at Double-A, but he'll get some more seasoning.
