Cubs’ closer Brandon Morrow has been placed on the 10-day DL with lower back tightness.
RHP Justin Hancock will stay with the team, as he was called up yesterday.
Our last article states that Morrow “tweaked” his back while putting on his pants. So I put the blame on his pants for losing the first game of the doubleheader yesterday.
Morrow has a 1.39 ERA in 22.2 innings pitched so far with the Cubs.
