Sat, 12 Dec 2015 07:54:27 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates P Charlie Morton was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, Dec. 12, in exchange for P David Whitehead.

Fantasy Tip: The Pirates probably will add at least one starting pitcher in free agency. Gerrit Cole, Francisco Liriano and Jon Niese likely will be part of the rotation at this point. Cole and Liriano should be selected in all mixed leagues, while Niese may be an NL-only option at this point as well as some deep mixed leagues.

Pirates | Charlie Morton's struggles continue

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 17:38:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton (9-8) allowed six runs on nine hits over four innings in a loss to the Chicago Cubs Thursday, Sept. 17, with two walks and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Morton ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has lost four times in his last five starts, although his previous three outings were all quality starts. However, Thursday's performance was probably his worst since he allowed nine runs against the Nationals June 21, and Cubs batters only swung and missed at four of the 76 pitches he threw. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Pirates | Charlie Morton salty on the road

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 22:13:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton allowed five earned runs, seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a loss Wednesday, July 22, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Morton ($4,800; or 9.6% of cap) is sharp at home, posting a 4-1 record and 2.52 ERA in six outings. However, he should be avoided in FantasyScore when he is on the road, as he is 2-3 with a 7.82 ERA in five outings away from PNC Park.

Pirates | Charlie Morton stays hot

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 20:36:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton pitched seven scoreless innings with three strikeouts to earn his fifth win of the season during the Pirates' 3-0 win over the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Morton's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) ERA is down to 1.62, and he also has an impressive 0.99 WHIP. However, his 15 punchouts over 33 1/3 innings leave a lot to be desired, especially for FantasyScore players. He has been an excellent three-category contributor in year-long leagues, though. Looking ahead, Morton's FIP sits at 3.31 for the season, so expect things to be slightly more rocky going forward.

Pirates | Charlie Morton improves to 4-0

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 18:29:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton improved to 4-0 on the season Wednesday, June 10, against the Milwaukee Brewers. Morton struck out six hiters, while allowing just three hits over 7 1/3 scoreless innings.

Fantasy Tip: Morton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) lowered his ERA to 2.05, although his xFIP remains above three. Morton's FantasyScore value is limited by his 2.84 strikeout rate, but he'll be worth a look in a safe matchup against the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, June 16.
