2019 Fantasy Outlook
On the strength of his brilliant run with the Dodgers, Morrow landed a two-year contract with the Cubs last offseason. The team anointed him the closer before camp even began and Morrow rewarded the organization's faith with excellent ratios and 22 successful save conversions in 24 chances over the first half of the year. Unfortunately, injuries, as they often have throughout his career, derailed what was shaping up to be a great season. Morrow said initially that he didn't expect a long-term absence due to the biceps inflammation, but the issue only worsened during his attempts to ramp back up. The skills weren't as good as the surface numbers would suggest during his time on the field (25.4 K%, 7.4 BB%, 93 LOB%). Morrow underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow in November and is not expected to be ready to begin the regular season. Read Past Outlooks
