Morrow, a Santa Rosa, Calif. native, was drafted in the first round by the Seattle Mariners in 2006 (5th overall). The 32-year-old spent three seasons with the Mariners (’07-’09), five seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays (’10-’14), and two seasons in San Diego (’15-’16).
He missed the last five months of his 2015 season with shoulder problems and resulted him in receiving arthroscopic cleanup surgery on Aug. 19.
Morrow was placed on paternity leave on August 26 during last season and then elected free agency on Nov. 3. The veteran reliever finished the season with 1-0 record with a 1.69 ERA and pitch 16 innings in 18 games.
