Charlie Morton 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

"Charlie Morton fanned nine hitters and gave up three runs over six innings in a win over the Royals on Wednesday.
Morton allowed only four hits, but he once again had issues with control; walking four Kansas City hitters. That gives him 10 in his last two starts after only registering six walks in the previous four. Fortunately he's missing plenty of bats, and he owns 105 strikeouts in 82 2/3 to go along with a 2.94 ERA on the 2018 season. Morton is an excellent streaming option when he takes on the Rays on Wednesday."

I guess Morton is the bench heat of the pitching world.

Heh. I'm not going to defend that frigid take from the RW blurb writer, but they didn't say "AL only" streamer. Any pitcher with a pulse is an AL only streamer.

Morton is on pace for 193 innings, he's averaged 103 innings per season for the last 6 years. Any reason to think he'll stay durable this year?

i mean its an odd career....turning into this type of pitcher at 34.

 

you probably got him after pick 150 so you  might as well ride him out unless someone is willing to trade you carlos correa for him or something.

Any sign that he's about to get hurt? If you really wanted, you could probably trade him for a worse more "durable" pitcher, but even the durable guys are always getting hurt.
