Phillies' Charlie Morton: Acquired by Phillies in trade
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Morton was acquired from the Pirates for a minor league pitcher.

Morton is a fairly sensible acquisition for the rebuilding Phillies. Despite an underwhelming 2015 with a 4.81 ERA, he should still be able to deliver innings for the Phillies in 2016. He will, however, be pitching in a tougher environment, moving to the hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park. He also loses the Pirates' strong outfield defense, but his ability to induce groundballs should mitigate that. The 32-year-old figures to slot in somewhere between the No. 3 and 5 spots of a shallow rotation.

Pirates' Charlie Morton to start nightcap of Wednesday doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton will start Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals , Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

As expected, Morton will just move back to Wednesday after Tuesday's game was postponed due to rain. However, Morton is now slated to oppose Tyler Lyons rather than Michael Wacha , with the Pirates opting to flip Morton and Gerrit Cole .

Pirates, Charlie Morton rained out on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton will not make his scheduled start Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals , as the game has been postponed due to rain, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Pittsburgh and St. Louis will play two Wednesday to make up for the rainout, and while nothing's been officially announced, it seems likely both Morton and Michael Wacha will simply move back a day. Morton held the Cardinals to one earned run over six innings in his lone start against them this season back on Sept. 5.

Pirates SP Charlie Morton gives up six runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher Charlie Morton was bailed out of a poor start Wednesday, receiving a no-decision after giving up six earned runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out five in a 13-7 win over the Rockies.

Staked to a 7-1 lead by the fourth inning, Morton walked in a run only to give up homers to Corey Dickerson and Tom Murphy the following frame. Coors Field outings should always be taken with a grain of salt, but Morton has now given up at least five earned runs in each of his last two starts; terrible timing, considering the Pirates have yet to announce a rotation for the playoffs.

Pirates SP Charlie Morton struggles mightily in loss to Cubs
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates starter Charlie Morton allowed nine hits, six runs (five earned) and two walks in five-plus innings in a 9-6 loss to the Cubs on Thursday. He struck out five.

Morton broke his string of three consecutive quality starts and also surrendered a homer for the second straight outing after a stretch in which he'd prevented a long ball in seven of eight trips to the mound.

The veteran right-hander wasn't missing many bats Thursday, as evidenced by the paltry four swings-and-misses he induced over 76 pitches.

Morton has now dropped four out of his last five decisions despite not pitching poorly in each instance. It remains to be seen how he will fit into the team's postseason plans.
