Charlie Morton (SP, PIT) - Waiver Wire Analysis

Scott McCloy - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting; 2-Start Stream this Week

ANALYSIS: Charlie Morton (6% ownership) had a no decision in his 2014 debut against the Chicago Cubs.  He pitched 6 innings, allowing 4 hits and striking out 6. Coming off a solid 2013 where he used a change in his arm slot to much success, Morton looks to build upon this with a more prominent role in the Pirates rotation. He has the Cubs again this week, this time at Wrigley, and the Brewers who he has dominated the last three years (2-0, 2.25 ERA) at home. Look for Morton to continue getting the strikeouts and limiting base runners en route to two quality starts this week.  In weekly leagues, add him for his two starts this week, otherwise monitor his progress on the waiver wire for now.
