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...

Marlins notes: Bryan Morris helping bullpen with propensity for throwing strikes

FG on Fox: The Value of the Top Pick

When the Marlins traded the 39th overall pick in Thursday’s amateur draft to the Pittsburgh Pirates for reliever Bryan Morris, the most common reaction was not that the cheapest organization in baseball was pinching pennies again; it was “wait, MLB teams can trade draft picks?” Unlike in the other major professional sports, MLB has historically […]

A's nearly traded reliever Johnson to Marlins for 39th pick in draft

The Marlins, before acquiring right-hander Bryan Morris from the Pirates on Sunday, made the Athletics a trade offer for righty Jim Johnson, according to major-league sources. The Athletics were willing to make...

The Marlins Live Down to Their Reputation

On Sunday, the Marlins made a head-scratching trade, acquiring reliever Bryan Morris from the Pirates in exchange for their Competitive Balance selection — #39 overall — in Thursday’s amateur draft. Morris does have some virtues as a very hard-throwing groundball guy who is decently effective against right-handed batters, but he also has a long list […]

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...

Pirates 4, Brewers 1

- Much needed victory for the Pirates. Francisco Liriano remains winless, but he pitched very well and gave the Pirates a taste of the ace they became accustomed to seeing in 2013.  Bryan Morris and Tony Watson survived some turbulence to keep the game tied, and Mark Melancon picked up a fairly easy save. Brewers starter Wily Peralta matched Liriano and it looked like the Pirate...

Series Wrap-Up: Weekend of comebacks

The Pirates came back twice to win on Friday night, then came back from a 3-0 hole to win on Saturday night. On Sunday night, after going down 4-0 in the first inning, they nearly did it again, but totally blew a golden chance in the ninth. So it was another good weekend overall, but the loss Sunday night leaves a bad taste in your mouth, especially after failing to score down one...
