Astros' Charlie Morton: Morton "softly" in starting rotation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Morton (hamstring) is "softly" in the Astros starting rotation for 2017, according to manager A.J. Hinch, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

Morton signed a two-year, $14 million contract with the Astros in November after a torn hamstring limited his 2016 season to four starts. The 33-year-old has been injury-prone in recent years, but it looks like he will get the chance to start once again. While Morton appears poised to break camp as the team's fifth starter, 24-year-old Joe Musgrove has more potential and may be a more intriguing option, as he finished 2016 with a 4.06 ERA over 11 games (10 starts) in Houston. Musgrove may begin the season in Triple-A, but he figures to make his way back to the majors at some point in 2017.

Astros' Charlie Morton: Signs with Astros
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Morton (hamstring) signed a two-year, $14 million contract with the Astros on Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

A torn hamstring limited Morton to just four starts in 2016, but his 6-to-8 month recovery timetable puts him on track to be ready by spring training, and his contract makes him a favorite to open the season with one of the back-end spots in the Astros' rotation. Health will be a key factor in him both winning and hanging onto a job, as he has averaged just 16 starts per season since making a career-high 29 starts in 2011.

Charlie Morton: Team option declined
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Phillies have declined the 2017 team option on Morton's (hamstring) contract, MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports.

Morton had more success than not over the last few seasons, but he was limited to just four starts in 2016 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn left hamstring, so the Phillies decided not to pay him the $9.5 million he was due for 2017 and let him test free agency. It's not clear where Morton stands health-wise, but he figures to garner attention this offseason from teams looking for back-of-the-rotation options.

Phillies' Charlie Morton: To undergo season-ending surgery Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlie Morton will undergo season-ending surgery on his injured hamstring, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

The veteran right-hander was placed on the disabled list Sunday with what was ruled as a left hamstring strain, but an MRI performed a day later revealed a tear in the hamstring, according to Stephen Gross of The Morning Call. Morton is scheduled to undergo the season-ending surgery Monday, meaning that two of the Philadelphia Phillies ' initial pieces of the rotation are gone for the year. Adam Morgan is expected to take Morton's spot in the rotation beginning Friday.
