Cubs put closer Morrow on DL; Darvish throws simulated game

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs will have to get by without closer Brandon Morrow for at least a little while.

The Cubs placed the right-hander on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday because of lower back tightness, leaving a short-handed bullpen without its most important piece.

While Morrow went on the DL, Yu Darvish threw a simulated game. Manager Joe Maddon said he looked "outstanding," and the Cubs will see how he feels Thursday before announcing the next step as he works his way back from tendinitis in his right triceps.
