BRYAN MORRIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Get to know your Marlins: Q&A with reliever Bryan Morris

When the Miami Marlins traded away the No. 39 competitive balance pick in last month's draft, it was for a little-known Pittsburgh Pirates right-handed reliever named Bryan Morris. Since his arrival in South Florida, the 27-year-old has not allowed an earned run over 17 outings spanning 21 1/3 innings -- a new club record to start a Marlins career. As a September call-up in 2012...

Bryan Morris traded to Marlins

The @Pirates today traded pitcher Bryan Morris to the @Marlins for the 39th overall selection (competitive balance A) in the 2014 Draft. — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) June 1, 2014 Seems like a good move for the Bucs and a head-scratcher for the Fish.  Morris – despite good looking “stuff”- has been simply awful recently (anyone who has watched won’t be fooled by the...

Pirates trade Bryan Morris to Marlins for 39th pick in draft

This is kind of random and out of the blue: the Pirates announced today that they traded Bryan Morris to the Marlins for the 39th pick int his year’s draft. The 39th overall pick is one of the “competitive lottery” picks given to bad/small market teams after each of the first two rounds of the draft, which are the only tradeable picks in the draft. You may recall that the Pirates...

The Marlins (28-27) decided on the move late Saturday hours after five relievers combined to issue five walks and allow four runs...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Curse in full effect?

(Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug; opening image terrible umpiring; image credit sbnation) Meals’ blown 19th inning call; image credit tumblr Are the Pittsburgh Pirates doomed to never make the playoffs, let alone finish above .500 again?  Are they cursed?  It’s highly unlikely.  PNC Park doesn’t appear to have been built on top of any burial ground, and the manner in which...

The Tricky Rules Surrounding the Morris and Leroux Transactions

Chris Leroux can refuse an outright assignment and become a free agent. Earlier today the Pirates called up Bryan Morris and designated Chris Leroux for assignment. It seems like a simple process for each player. Usually when a player is DFAd, he is placed on waivers and outrighted to Triple-A. With Morris, he had been optioned to start the year, and was just recalled. But there...

First Pitch: Bryan Morris in Triple-A Might Not Be a Bad Idea

Bryan Morris was optioned to Triple-A today. One day after we learned that Bryan Morris had a fourth option year, the Pittsburgh Pirates optioned Morris to Triple-A. It’s coincidental in the way that it played out. Baseball America reported the players with additional option years yesterday. The Pirates and Morris had known for a few months. I’ve been saying for the better part...

Bryan Morris Gets a Fourth Option Year

  Bryan Morris has an extra option year. Baseball America has a list of players who received the rare fourth option year (h/t Bucs Dugout). We already knew two of the Pirates on the list who had received fourth options: Pedro Alvarez and Andy Oliver. One player who was unexpected was Bryan Morris. From what I can gather from Baseball America’s description of the rules, Morris...
