Is it worth hanging onto him since it is said that he's going to get some starts before the end of the year?

Putz entered yesterday's game in the 7th inning. Morrow's going to get more saves before the year's out.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

yea I picked him up as soon as he became a free agent again just because I'm desperate for saves, plus his ratios are good so far - doesn't hurt to have him around

No, doesn't hurt at all.

From Yahoo:
Quote:
Mon, Aug 4 Morrow will transition to a starter when J.J. Putz is ready to close, the Seattle Times reports.
Recommendation: Manager Jim Riggleman previously said that the organization was split "50/50" on making Morrow a starter. Sunday, though, he said, "It's going to happen at some point." Putz, who pitched 1.1 scoreless innings Sunday, is getting closer to returning to the ninth-inning role. Once that happens, Morrow likely will go to Triple-A to stretch out before returning in September to start.
Sun, Aug 3 Updating previous reports, Seattle Mariners manager Jim Riggleman said the team wants to get RP Brandon Morrow several starts before the end of the season, depending on how soon CL J.J. Putz can return to the closer role full-time, according to The Associated Press. Riggleman said the goal is to get Morrow to the point where he can pitch five innings late in the season, proving his arm can handle the rigors of starting.


Are they trying to kill his arm in the next month or so? Sounds like it'd be a better offseason project then end of the year one.... Just my opinion though.

His last start was pretty solid- 4.2 IP, 10 K, 2 H, 2 ER. See http://tacoma.rainiers.milb.com/milb/st ... pid=453344

I'm sold. I mean, if he could just change that first # to something like 7. Oh, and also get back in the lineup before mid- September.

Thanks for the link but I think he's better off as a sleeper for next year. Even if he does return he's still pitching for the M's.
