Dodgers select contract of Brandon Morrow

The Los Angeles Dodgers today selected the contract of right-hander Brandon Morrow and placed left-handed pitcher Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list with left SC joint inflammation (retroactive to May 27).
 
Morrow, 32, has posted a 1.74 ERA (2 ER/10.1 IP) in his last 10 appearances at Triple-A Oklahoma City, going 0-2 with three saves since April 27. Overall, Morrow was 0-5 with six saves and a 5.71 ERA with OKC, but most of the damage came in a single outing on April 22 vs. Memphis, when he allowed six runs without recording an out. Morrow, who is in his first year with the Dodger organization, has gone 45-43 with 16 saves and a 4.16 ERA in 254 games (113 starts) in 10 big league seasons, including going 1-0 with a 1.69 ERA in 18 appearances last year with San Diego.
 
Wood, 26, has the longest scoreless streak in the Majors this year at 25.1 innings and has gone 6-0 with a 1.69 ERA in 10 games (eight starts).
 
To create room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers transferred right-hander Brock Stewart (right shoulder tendinitis) to the 60-day DL.
