Brandon Morrow was a late round pick last year in my draft. 14th.  

With his late injury last year, do you think he'll go for the same value this year? Or is the cat out of the bag that this guy can pitch, when healthy...?

I don't know what you are smoking but he sure as hell ain't no late round gem. Every expert loves Brandon Morrow every year and he had a damn good year last year. He is a K machine on top of that. And oh yeah he will probably get the opening day start for the world series favored team. People are going to be lucky to draft him this year.

Well I got him at that position in a 10 teamer. Must have been dumb luck, on no one drafting him earlier. He's fun to watch and does have a high K rate... Hopefully he stays injury free this year.

I'm not to sure how I feel about him this year yet. I think this is the one year he will actually be drafted before he should be, and I don't like him at that value. If he fell to the 14th round then he is great there, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him go six rounds higher as drafts get closer

He has top 20 fantasy stuff, Ive got him ranked No.17 on my SP list of how I personally would take them.  He had a great year last year and lost about 10-11 starts to the injury.

I'll take him as a #3 in a 12-team redraft. If a #3 SP is a need of mine and he's still there in the 11th-12th rd he's worth it. His K's make him a SP3 at worst assuming health.

Yeah this sounds about right.  He's the kind of upside arm who fits in well in this spot (i.e. a high end #3).  That said, he seems to get drafted in that low end #2 SP spot every year, and I refuse to reach for him.  Unfortunately, like the guy above said, the Toronto hype machine will likely cause his value to inflate on draft day once again.   I just don't see how I could take the guy over a Gallardo or even Cueto type of reliable #2 arm.

It's funny, Morrow sacrificed the K rate for his ratios last year and the results were fantastic...Of course, per his career so far, he still had trouble staying on the mound...If he can manage to stay healthy and maintain last season's ratios with a slight uptick in the K rate we will be looking at a dominant pitcher this year...With Morrow that is a big if...I think he can stay on the field for 30 starts...

Certainly not a late rd gem so far ......have seen him going between $15-18 at mixed auctions.  More like #2 SP price than #3....still like his upside though.

I agree. I do like how he's gotten himself out of the trouble he got himself into.

I think it will be a minor miracle if he qualifies for a QS with 72 pitches through 4. I'll take this though if he continues to limit the damage.

Have a good feeling about Morrow this year! I'd take him as SP #2 in most of my leagues 14/16 teams. Wins, K's, Decent Era, QS should all be there this year heavily
