Cardinals’ starter Matt Morris will be undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery today. The procedure is expected to clean up the shoulder and relieve a lot of the pain that has bothered Morris lately. It will also prevent him from getting a huge deal on the free agent market. In fact, Morris has instructed his agent not to go in search of a big contract. Morris told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he hopes he can sign a one-year deal with the Cardinals during the off-season. Last year, Morris was 15-10 with a 4.72 ERA. His earned run average was the highest of his career, by a long shot. In 2003 he had a 3.76 ERA and had never peaked above 3.57 before 2003.
