CHARLIE MORTON RUMORS

Glasnow Dominates Upper Level Hitters in Spring Debut; Morton Shows Some Rust

Tyler Glasnow has pitched in McKechnie Field many times. He spent the entire 2014 season at the High-A level, making all of his home starts at the stadium. But today, when he made his MLB Spring Training debut, there was something completely different about the stadium he was familiar with. “It definitely felt a lot different,” Glasnow said “It didn’t really feel like the...

Charlie Morton < 500

I have probably written more words about Charlie Morton than any other Pirate pitcher of the last five years, and so I’m a little embarrassed to say that it’s probably easy enough to preview Morton’s 2015 season thusly: if he’s healthy, he’ll be fine, but it’s always hard to say if Charlie Morton will be healthy. This year Morton is dealing with recovery from hip labrum...

Charlie Morton’s Approach to Clean His Arm Action and Make His Delivery More Efficient

It’s rare to see a guy throw off the mound during mini camp. Usually pitchers are just getting started back up after a short break over the holidays, and only throwing off flat grounds. That wasn’t the case today with Charlie Morton. The sinkerball pitcher wanted to get out on the mound today for the first time since having surgery back in September. He threw a short bullpen...

Charlie Morton Has a Good Outing in Return From DL

Charlie Morton started tonight for the first time since August 15 and helped to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-0 win over the Boston Red Sox in the first game of a three game series. Morton threw five innings, giving up four hits, walking two batters and striking out six. He threw 92 pitches, 65 for strikes and his sinker sat in the high 80s to low 90s. This was a classic Charlie...

Charlie Morton and the rotation

I have to admit, I was a little surprised over the weekend when the Pirates announced Charlie Morton would be making a start against the Boston Red Sox tonight. Morton’s whole season has been up-and-down as he’s dealt with his sports hernia, but he was in the midst of a really bad stretch before said hernia landed him on the disabled list. In 39 innings over his last seven starts...

Looking at Why Charlie Morton is Replacing Vance Worley in the Rotation

Yesterday the Pittsburgh Pirates announced that Charlie Morton will start Tuesday night against the Red Sox, replacing Vance Worley who was originally scheduled to make the start. Morton has not pitched since August 15th against the Nationals, when he lasted only three innings and gave up five runs. Since that start, Morton has been on the disabled list, attempting to ease the pain...

The End of Charlie Morton’s Run at History

As of this writing, the Pittsburgh Pirates have a better than one-in-four chance of making the postseason. One of their pitchers, Charlie Morton, was recently placed on the disabled list with hip discomfort. Morton’s value is not necessarily reflected in his win/loss record, but he’s been an extremely serviceable pitcher this year, worth over a […]

What Can We Expect from Charlie Morton?

The Pirates are front and center in a playoff run and Charlie Morton has been their most valuable pitcher. Sadly, Charlie Morton has only posted 1.2 wins above replacement. So yes, he may lead the Pirates but he merely leads Mark Melancon by 0.1 wins above replacement and Vance Worley, who has made 14 less starts, by 0.3. Morton’s start yesterday against the Padres was a microcosm...
