Pirates | Charlie Morton starting Monday

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:31:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton (hip) will start against the Miami Marlins Monday, May 25, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Morton ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is a viable add in all deep mixed and NL-only leagues. FantasyScore players will want to take a wait-and-see approach with him, though. Morton stands to become a nice matchup play once he settles back in and finds a groove, especially when tossing at pitcher-friendly PNC Park.

Pirates | Charlie Morton set to join Bucs

Fri, 22 May 2015 10:38:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton (hip) allowed two runs and four walks while striking out nine in 6 1/3 innings in what was believed to be his final rehab start for Class AAA Indianapolis Tuesday, May 19. He's recovering from hip surgery to fix his labrum in September of last year. Morton is expected to take the rotation spot of SP Vance Worley.

Fantasy Tip: Morton ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should be added in all deep mixed and AL-only leagues before he's activated from the DL. You should probably take a wait-and-see approach with him at FantasyScore, but he could eventually become a nice matchup play, especially when pitching at home at pitcher-friendly PNC Park.

Pirates | Charlie Morton will need rehab stint

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 16:15:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton (hip) threw a side session Monday, April 6, and will throw a couple of bullpens and a simulated game or two before going on a rehab assignment, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Morton is only viable in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues at this point, and he is a few weeks from returning, at best. Vance Worley ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will fill in for Morton, and Worely projects to make his first start Saturday, April 11, against the Milwaukee Brewers. Take a wait-and-see approach with Worely in the majority of fantasy formats. However, his minimal cap hit could be enticing for FantasyScore players Saturday. Still, he would fall in the high-risk, high-reward category.
