Padres | Brandon Morrow expected back soon

Fri, 08 May 2015 11:38:49 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) is currently on the 15-day disabled list, but the team hopes he will not miss more than the minimum 15 days.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor Morrow's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) recovery to see when he will be able to return. Odrisamer Despaigne ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will take his spot in the rotation while he is sidelined but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Padres | Brandon Morrow heading to DL

Tue, 05 May 2015 15:54:37 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow (shoulder) was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 5, with right shoulder inflammation. The move is retroactive to May 3. RP Frank Garces was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow was pitching very well this year and deserves to be stashed in a DL slot in all fantasy formats. Odrisamer Despaigne ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) was successful in his lone spot start this year and is likely to enter the starting rotation once again. He's a waiver wire target for rotation-needy fantasy owners and will make for a nice matchup play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Brandon Morrow earns second victory

Sun, 03 May 2015 06:17:42 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow allowed two earned runs while striking out four batters over six innings against the Colorado Rockies to record his second win of the season Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of a poor showing in Coors Field, Morrow ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has limited opponents to two earned runs or fewer in each of his four starts. On the season, he has a 2.73 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP and 23 strikeouts through 33 innings. He is a great low-priced pitching option for FantasyScore players, especially when starting in pitcher-friendly PETCO Park and against favorable matchups. Seasonal owners can turn to Morrow in deep mixed leagues, too.

Padres | Brandon Morrow dazzles in season debut

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 06:28:42 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow struck out seven batters through seven-scoreless innings against the San Francisco Giants Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Although he failed to leave with the win, it was an excellent debut for Morrow ($3,000, 6.0% of cap). At his cap hit, Morrow could be an excellent bargain for FantasyScore players in his next start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, especially at pitcher-friendly PETCO Park. He could also warrant a speculative add in seasonal leagues, as injuries have been the only thing holding Morrow back from being a fantasy force. At worst, he can likely help pad your strikeout total.

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 08:08:26 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) pitched in only 13 games last season and is looking for a bounce back season with the Padres. Morrow should be an option in NL-only leagues, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Padres | Brandon Morrow still battling fifth spot

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 05:12:56 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow is still battling with SP Odrisamer Despaigne for the fifth spot in the starting rotation, according to manager Bud Black. Through 12 2/3 innings pitched this spring, Morrow has a 4.26 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow has tossed just 87 2/3 innings over the past two seasons, and other than a dominant stretch in 2012, he can be typecast as a high-volume strikeout artist with poor ratios. Morrow is best left to the final rounds as a late-round flier in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, if he wins the rotation job. There is upside, but the injury history is concerning.

Padres | Brandon Morrow has solid outing

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 18:14:52 -0800

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow allowed two hits over two scoreless innings in Cactus League action Friday, March 6, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow is competing with Odrisamer Despaigne for the final rotation job in San Diego. If he is able to secure that final spot he would be a solid play in NL-only fantasy formats and deeper mixed play.
