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.

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.

San Diego Padres SPs Brandon Morrow and Odrisamer Despaigne are "maybe out there a touch" in the race for the No. 5 starting rotation spot early in spring, according to manager Bud Black. Morrow opted to sign with San Diego because they were going to give him a legitimate rotation shot, instead of pitching in relief. SPs Robbie Erlin and Matt Wisler are other candidates for the job.
Fantasy Tip: Even at age 30 with a lengthy injury history, Morrow seems like the more intriguing option here. Whoever wins the No. 5 spot in SD will be worth a dart throw at the tail end of deep mixed league drafts. At the very least, the winner of this competition should be owned in all NL-only leagues and could be a very valuable daily piece, especially when starting games at Petco.
