Charlie Morton rejoins rotation Tuesday
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

MLB.com reports that Charlie Morton is scheduled to start for the Pirates against the Red Sox on Tuesday, marking his return from a sports hernia. Morton has not made an appearance since his Aug. 15 start at the Nationals.

He will take Vance Worley's spot in the rotation, as Worley will move to the bullpen.

Bullpen stint unlikely for Charlie Morton
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Clint Hurdle has indicated that Pirates right-hander Charlie Morton is more likely to return as a potential starter than as a reliever. The team, however, has not ruled out the possibility of using him out of the bullpen.

Morton, who has been out since Aug. 15 with a sports hernia, appears to be closing in on a full recovery. He threw five innings and 86 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday in Philadelphia. Hurdle and his staff will discuss his future role Monday.

"It needs to be asked," Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "The other things with Charlie is the preparation just to go out and pitch. He's not a guy in the bullpen like [Jared] Hughes and a number of others who's going to be ready in nine pitches. It would be a challenge at the end of an inning to get him up and have him ready by the start of the next because he's started for such a long volume of games."

Morton indeed has started all 25 games in which he has pitched this season. He's 5-12 with a 3.84 ERA.

Charlie Morton's sports hernia not getting better
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton is still feeling the same amount of pain in his groin that he has for three months, and his sports hernia is not getting better, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

"It’s always manageable," Morton said Saturday. "It’s just always there."

Morton will throw a simulated game Tuesday before the team determines whether he can pitch again this season.

"I’m just trying to stay ready in case they say, ‘OK, Charlie’s a good option for us right now,’" Morton said. "I didn’t ask to go on the DL, I didn’t really want to go, but I think it was in the best interests of the team at the time because four out of five starts I made weren’t very good. Cole was coming back and we had four other guys that were doing a good job. So I think at the time, yeah, I think it was the right choice. And I think that’s what we’re just doing, is trying to make the best choice for the team. It’s not about me getting in there."

Charlie Morton's next few steps planned out
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
