Morton allowed three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out eight over six innings Friday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.
Morton allowed a pair of runs in the second inning and then later was taken yard by Ji-Man Choi. The 37-year-old righty still managed to post a quality start against his former team and recorded at least seven strikeouts for a sixth straight start. He now owns a 3.69 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 122:36 K:BB over 105 innings and is tentatively lined up to take the mound next week against the Padres.
