Cubs' Morrow out for year following another setback

CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Cubs closer Brandon Morrow is out for the year following another setback in his recovery from right elbow surgery, according to team president Theo Epstein.

Morrow, who hasn't pitched in a game since July 2018, had the arthroscopic procedure last November.

"He certainly worked really hard in an attempt to come back and tried a lot of different techniques and procedures, and just wasn't able to get over the hump," Epstein said Wednesday before the Cubs played the San Francisco Giants.
