  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Surrenders five runs

    Morton did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing five runs on six hits and one walk over six innings against the Red Sox. He struck out seven.

    Morton was a victim of the long ball Tuesday. Three of the six against him went for home runs, accounting for four of his five runs allowed. The veteran righty otherwise looked OK, as he walked just one batter and struck out seven while generating 12 whiffs. He carries a 4.26 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into his next scheduled start against the Mets next week

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Settles for no-decision

    Morton didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Phillies, allowing three hits and a walk over 6.2 scoreless innings. He struck out eight.

    The veteran right-hander was in vintage form, generating 18 swinging strikes among his 101 pitches and exiting the game with Atlanta holding a 1-0 lead. Unfortunately, Morton was denied his sixth win of the year when Collin McHugh imploded in the eighth inning. Morton has delivered six quality starts in his last nine outings, posting a masterful 2.40 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 68:17 K:BB through 56.1 innings over that stretch.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Takes fifth loss

    Morton (5-5) allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out five across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Phillies.

    Morton held the Phillies scoreless through four innings but had his start spoiled in his final frame when he allowed five of the first seven batters he faced to reach base. After maintaining a 1.60 ERA and 0.77 WHIP across a five-start stretch from mid-June to early July, Morton has allowed nine earned runs across his last 16 innings -- spanning three outings. Morton owns a 4.34 ERA and 126:42 K:BB in 110 frames for the season.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Sharp in Friday's no-decision

    Morton didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 8-1 win over the Angels, allowing two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings. He struck out seven.

    The veteran right-hander was locked in a pitchers' duel with Shohei Ohtani through six innings, as neither hurler gave up a run. Morton then exited having tossed 105 pitches (65 strikes), and Atlanta promptly got to a fading Ohtani in the bottom of the seventh. Morton has delivered three quality starts in four trips to the mound in July, posting a 2.52 ERRA, 0.92 WHIP and 30:10 K:BB through 25 innings on the month as he continues to turn things around following a shaky beginning to the campaign.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Hit hard in loss to Mets

    Morton (5-4) took the loss Wednesday as Atlanta was downed 7-3 by the Mets, coughing up five runs on six hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over five-plus innings. He struck out six.

    The strikeouts salvaged some fantasy value for the veteran righty, but Morton wasn't really fooling anyone. He managed only nine swinging strikes among his 107 pitches, serving up multiple homers for the third time in his last seven starts while issuing at least three free passes for the third time in his last four. Despite those recent stumbles, Morton's loss was the first on his ledger since May 3, and he'll carry a 4.45 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 114:37 K:BB through 99 innings into his next outing.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Fans seven in fifth win

    Morton (5-3) picked up the win Friday, giving up two runs on four hits and three walks over seven inning in a 12-2 rout of the Nationals. He struck out seven.

    Aside from a two-run blast by Juan Soto in the third inning, Morton was firmly in control, firing 69 of 105 pitches for strikes before exiting. The win was his first in over a month but the veteran right-hander has been pitching like an ace again recently, reeling off four quality starts in his last five trips to the mound and missing the fifth by only one out. Over that stretch, Morton has a 1.60 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 42:8 K:BB through 33.2 innings.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Strikes out 10

    Morton gave up a hit and a walk with no earned runs over seven innings in a 4-3 loss to the Reds on Sunday. Morton struck out 10 and did not factor into the decision.

    Morton was on top of his game Sunday, and his seven innings of shutout ball marked his best start of his season. He retired the first 12 batters of the game and struck out the side in the third. Morton leaned effectively on his curveball to garner swings and misses on pitches out of the zone. The 38-year-old veteran had a weak start to the season, posting a 7.00 ERA in April, but his statistics appear to be normalizing closer toward his career averages. The veteran has a career 4.03 ERA in 1705 innings pitched. Morton is tentatively expected to start on Friday against the Nationals.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Falls short of quality start

    Morton didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Phillies, allowing two runs on seven hits and four walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five.

    The veteran right-hander ran up his pitch count by tying his season high in free passes and fell one out short of his third straight quality start, exiting after 102 pitches (61 strikes) with Atlanta ahead 3-2. Morton was denied his fifth win of the year when Dylan Lee stumbled in the seventh, however. Morton wraps up a June resurgence that has seen him post a 3.52 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 45:8 K:BB through 30.2 innings over his last five starts.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Fans 11 batters Wednesday

    Morton took a no-decision against San Francisco on Wednesday, pitching seven innings and allowing two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out 11 batters.

    Morton gave up a solo homer in each of the first and fourth innings, but he gave up only one additional hit and otherwise kept the Giants off the scoreboard. The veteran hurler racked up 14 swinging strikes and 11 punchouts but had to settle for a no-decision with opposing starter Carlos Rodon also posting an impressive outing. Morton has really picked things up in the strikeout category of late, fanning 40 batters over his past 25 frames after registering a modest 8.4 K/9 across his first 10 starts of the campaign.

    Morton allowed three hits over seven scoreless frames in Friday's loss to the Cubs. He struck out nine without walking a batter and did not factor in the decision.

    Morton coughed up just three singles but he also hit two batters. Still, he cruised through seven innings and was left with a no-decision as Atlanta was handed a 1-0 loss. He's registered a 29:4 K:BB over his last three starts, giving him a 75:26 mark on the year in 67.1 innings. Morton's ERA still sits at a disappointing 5.08 through 13 starts. He's expected to start at home against the Giants next week.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Strikes out 12 in no-decision

    Morton allowed four runs on five hits and a walk with 12 strikeouts in six innings, taking a no-decision versus the Pirates on Saturday.

    Morton left the game with Atlanta trailing, but a seventh-inning rally got him off the hook. He gave up solo home runs to Bryan Reynolds and Daniel Vogelbach in the first inning and a pair of RBI doubles in the fifth to Reynolds and Ke'Bryan Hayes. While Morton has allowed four runs in each of his last four starts, this was the first time in nearly a month he's completed six innings. He has a 5.67 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 66:26 K:BB in 60.1 innings overall across 12 starts. He's projected for a road start against the Cubs next week.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Escapes Colorado with win

    Morton (4-3) allowed four runs on six hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in five innings, earning the win over the Rockies on Sunday.

    Morton had the most trouble with Brendan Rodgers, who had a two-run double and a run in the first inning and a solo home run in the fifth. This was Morton's third straight start with four runs allowed, and he hasn't gone past five innings in any of those games. For the season, the veteran right-hander owns a 5.63 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 54:25 K:BB in 54.1 innings across 11 starts. He's projected for an easier matchup at home versus the Pirates next weekend.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Lasts five innings in no-decision

    Morton allowed four runs on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts in five innings in a no-decision versus Arizona on Tuesday.

    Morton lasted long enough to qualify for the win, but Atlanta's bullpen couldn't maintain the lead. Christian Walker took Morton deep for a two-run home run in the first inning, and Arizona was able to scrape together two more runs that were charged to the starter in the sixth. Morton has only completed six innings once this season, posting a lackluster 5.47 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 46:22 K:BB across 49.1 innings in 10 starts this year. He's projected to make his next start in Colorado this weekend, which is an unfavorable matchup.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Ineffective against Phillies

    Morton pitched 4.1 innings, giving up four runs on nine hits, a walk and hit-by-pitch while striking out four in Wednesday's win over the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.

    Morton had a lot of trouble keeping the Phillies off the basepaths, allowing 11 batters to reach base while only registering 13 outs. He gave up a solo home run to Odubel Herrera in the second inning, another run in the fourth frame and surrendered two more in the following inning while only forcing one out. Morton came into Wednesday having only allowed four total runs over 16.1 frames in his prior three starts, watching his ERA jump from 4.95 to 5.28 following the difficult outing. The 38-year-old will look to get back on the right track when he toes the rubber next, which tentatively lines up as a matchup versus the Diamondbacks on Monday.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Snags third win

    Morton (3-3) picked up the win Friday, giving up three runs on seven hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in a 5-3 victory over the Marlins. He struck out five.

    The veteran right-hander started strong but faded late and fell two outs short of his second straight quality start, exiting after 87 pitches (61 strikes). Morton appears to have turned a corner after a rough April, and over his last three outings he sports a 2.20 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 19:5 K:BB through 16.1 innings.
