Morrow may transition to starter

Just got done talking with John McLaren during his morning briefing and the subject of Joba Chamberlain was brought up. The Yankees have allowed Chamberlain to go multiple innings in the bullpen, building his arm strength gradually until he’ll be able to start (once he throws about 70 pitches in a game). McLaren said the organization is contemplating the same thing with Brandon Morrow.
“We have thought about it,” he said. “We haven’t come to a conclusion yet, but that is a possibility.”
Morrow could either go back to Class AAA to begin the transition, or work out of Seattle’s bullpen in the majors.
“There are a couple of schools of thought,” McLaren said. “That he could be like Chamberlain and work on it here.”
By the way, Kenji Johjima will catch Jarrod Washburn today.
