Morrow (elbow) on track for mound work MondayMarch 15, 2019 | 09:10 AM
Brandon Morrow (elbow) is slated to throw a bullpen session Monday.
Morrow has his final day of long-tossing Friday and has yet to encounter any setbacks as he works his way back from last November's elbow surgery. He'll miss the first several weeks of the season but could conceivably be ready to regain his closer job sometime in May. Of course, that's if everything goes smoothly, which is far from a safe bet. Cubs manager Joe Maddon doesn't expected to name a closer going into the season, but Pedro Strop is at the head of the pack.
