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....

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Charlie Morton: No-decision despite strong outing
Morton didn't factor into the decision Saturday against San Diego despite allowing just one run on two hits and a walk while striking out nine batters in six frames.
Morton had a disappointing start to the season, carrying a 5.65 ERA through his first six outings while failing to strike out more than five batters in a single start. He looked much more like himself Saturday and is now riding a streak of two straight strong performances, as he allowed just two hits in five scoreless innings in his previous start. The veteran righty will look to make it three good starts in a row next week in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Charlie Morton: Bounces back against Milwaukee
Morton (2-3) allowed two hits and three walks while striking out five in five scoreless innings to earn the win over the Brewers on Sunday.
Morton had struggled mightily over his last four starts, posting a 7.85 ERA and 2.07 WHIP in 18.1 innings. However, he bounced back with a strong outing against a Brewers offense that had scored at least six runs in six of the last eight games. The righty threw just 55 of his 92 pitches for strikes and was pulled after just five innings, but it was encouraging to see him generate some production following a slow start to the season. Morton tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Padres next Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Charlie Morton: Struggles continue Tuesday
Morton (1-3) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, coughing up five runs (four earned) on six hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out three.
The veteran right-hander has yet to complete six innings in any of his starts this season and has walked at least three batters in four straight, as Morton continues to struggle. He'll carry a 6.85 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and shaky 18:14 K:BB through 23.2 innings into his next outing.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Charlie Morton: Early exit against Cubs
Morton didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-3 extra-inning loss to the Cubs, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks over 2.1 innings. He struck out one.
The veteran right-hander got taken off the hook for his third loss of the year when Atlanta tied things up in the eighth inning, but this was still an uncharacteristically poor outing from Morton, who had lasted at least five innings in each of his first three starts of 2022. Control seems to be his biggest issue right now, as he's walked 10 batters while striking out only 10 in his last 12.2 innings, though Morton's track record should provide some reassurance his 7.00 ERA and 1.78 WHIP on the season will come down....

Braves' Charlie Morton: Takes second loss in LA
Morton (1-2) was charged with the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers after allowing four runs on six hits with four strikeouts and three walks over 5.1 innings.
The veteran right-hander surrendered a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman during the opening frame, and he then gave up single-run tallies in the fifth and sixth innings. It's the second straight loss for Morton after picking up the victory Opening Day, and he'll attempt to get back in the win column next week versus the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Charlie Morton: Roughed up by Padres
Morton (1-1) took the loss against San Diego on Thursday, hurling five innings during which he surrendered five runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out five.
The Padres got to Morton early in the contest, tallying three runs in the first inning and two more in the second. The right-hander settled down from there and didn't allow any additional runs during his time on the mound, but the damage was too much for Atlanta to overcome. Morton was sharp in picking up a win in his first start of the campaign, so there's little reason to read too much into this poor outing. He'll look to get back on track next week in a tough road matchup against the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Charlie Morton: Sharp in Friday's win
Morton (1-0) picked up the win in Friday's 7-6 victory over the Reds, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out five.
The Atlanta bullpen made things interesting late but never relinquished the lead, ensuring Morton would get the win in his first appearance since his World Series heroics on a broken leg. The veteran right-hander threw 51 of 78 pitches for strikes, and he should get a little more stretched out in his next outing, which tentatively lines up as a road start Thursday against the Padres....

Braves' Charlie Morton: Pitching in minor-league game
Morton will pitch in a minor-league game on the back fields rather than starting Saturday's Grapefruit League matchup against the Yankees, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Morton was scheduled to make his final Grapefruit League start Saturday, but he'll pitch in a different setting due to the threat of inclement weather. Saturday's throwing session should serve as the final tune-up before Morton starts Atlanta's second game of the regular season against Cincinnati on April 8.... See More ... See Less
