The bullpen merry go round continues.

Cubs closer Brandon Morrow is going to have yet another stint on the disabled list:

With the stint retroactive three days, he'll be eligible to return next Thursday.

This is probably a proactive DL placement in order to keep Morrow fresh for later in the season.

Bass was quite effective earlier before his DL time, so he'll likely help out in middle relief, while closing duties get shared between Steve Cishek, Pedro Strop and Carl Edwards Jr.

A full game preview will post at 4 p.m. CT.
