Morrow out as M's closer

Brandon Marrow is no longer the Mariners closer, and several relievers may be given the chance to fill the role, the Seattle Times reported.

Morrow moves to middle relief until he can find command of his pitches. David Aardsma will lead a rotation of relievers who will finish games based the situation. Miguel Batista and Mark Lowe are also in the mix.

Morrow blew saves in each of the last two games of the 1-7 road trip.

"Again, obviously the devastation of the last two games," manager Dan Wakamatsu cited as the reason for the change, "but what we talked, more importantly, about is that if those two pitches were in a better location and he commands it, it's a different outcome."
