      Charlie Morton: Won't receive qualifying offer

      Charlie Morton is not expected to receive a $17.9 million qualifying offer from the Astros before Friday's deadline, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.Morton will be one of the more sought-after arms in free agency this winter after going 15-3 with a 3.13 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 10.8 K/9 across 30 starts (167 innings) for the Astros in 2018. Over the past two seasons with Houston, the veteran right-hander owns a 3.36 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 10.4 K/9 across 55 starts. Should Morton sign elsewhere, there will now be draft pick compensation attached.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Lasts 2.1 innings in Game 4

      Charlie Morton gave up three runs on three hits with two walks over 2.1 innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. He struck out two.It was trouble from the start as Morton gave up a two-run single to Rafael Devers in the first inning and surrendered an RBI double to Xander Bogaerts that ended his outing in the third inning. The right-hander's first appearance of the postseason was disappointing to say the least, as it took him 53 pitches to get through 2.1 innings and he allowed five baserunners in addition to two wild pitches. The 34-year-old now has an 11.57 ERA in the postseason.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Draws Game 4 assignment

      Charlie Morton will start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.Morton was not needed during the Houston Astros' ALDS sweep of the Indians, but with the ALCS being a best-of-7 series, he'll get the start for Game 4. No word has come forth as to whom he will face from Boston, but he'll have to get through a potent Red Sox offense in his home start Wednesday.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Tosses three scoreless frames

      Charlie Morton allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out four across three innings in a no-decision against Baltimore on Sunday.As expected, Morton was on a limited pitch count as the Houston Astros gear up for the postseason. On a positive note, it didn't look like he had any problems with the shoulder soreness that caused him to leave last weekend's start after just one inning. Though nothing has been made official at this point in time, it's expected that Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole will take the mound versus the Indians during the first two games of the ALDS, so look for Morton to start Game 3 or 4 in Cleveland.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Returns to team ahead of Sunday's start

      Charlie Morton returned to the Houston Astros in between Saturday's doubleheader following the birth of his child and is confirmed for Sunday's start, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.The shoulder soreness that cut his previous start short doesn't appear to be an issue, though Morton probably won't pitch more than a few innings so the club can conserve him for the playoffs. Whether fantasy players should start him depends on what they'll need during the championship matchup: This probably isn't a good spot to count on a win or quality start, but those merely chasing strikeouts against the whiff-happy Orioles have no reason to avoid him.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Slated to pitch Sunday

      Charlie Morton (shoulder) will pitch in Sunday's regular season finale against the Orioles, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.As expected, Morton is slated to get the ball once more before the end of the regular season after he was removed from his previous start with shoulder discomfort. The right-hander technically may not start Sunday; regardless of his role, he figures to be on a limited pitch count as manager A.J. Hinch looks to preserve him for the playoffs. Through 29 starts (164 innings) this season, Morton owns a 3.18 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 10.8 K/9.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Will make another start this season

      Charlie Morton (shoulder) is expected to make one final start next weekend in Baltimore before the regular season ends, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.Morton was removed from Sunday's game as a precaution after his velocity was noticeably down, with the Houston Astros diagnosing him with right shoulder discomfort shortly after the contest. It's the same injury that resulted in Morton landing on the disabled list in August, but the Astros apparently aren't too concerned about the issue. Assuming Morton gains clearance to start during the Astros' final series of the regular season, he'll likely face a limited pitch count as manager A.J. Hinch looks to preserve the right-hander for the postseason.

      Charlie Morton (15-3) picked up the win Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits over six innings while striking out seven in a 10-4 victory over the Diamondbacks.In a different era, his stellar winning percentage and 3.15 ERA might be garnering Morton some Cy Young consideration, but he'll instead have to make do with a legitimate shot at a second straight World Series ring. The right-hander will next take the mound Friday at home against the Angels.
