Brandon Morrow Out as Closer

May 15, 2009

The Seattle Mariners have had enough of the roller coaster ride that Brandon Morrow has put them on.  They have relegated him middle relief duty.  He has six saves in eight opportunities, but he sports a 9.72 ERA and a 2.28 WHIP.  He has been particularly bad in May, after coming of the DL, allowing 6 Runs in 1-2/3 Innings.

The Mariners will go with a Bullpen by Committee approach with David Aardsma as the primary option.  Aardsma has four Saves, a 1.53 ERA, and a 1.13 WHIP.
