Rays' Charlie Morton: Takes no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton allowed three runs on four hits with two walks and three strikeouts across five innings during a no-decision against the Mariners on Wednesday.

The veteran right-hander probably pitched better than that line indicates, but three hits, a walk and hit batsman in the fourth frame led to three runs. The Rays reclaimed the lead before Morton left, but the bullpen coughed it up in the ninth, costing him a shot at the win. He remains 13-5 with a 2.85 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 197 strikeouts in 161 innings this season. Morton will pitch against one of his former teams, the Astros, next Tuesday in Houston.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Fans 10 in tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (13-5) took the loss Friday, giving up an unearned run on three hits over seven innings while striking out 10 as the Rays fell 2-0 to the Tigers.

A Matt Duffy error in the fourth inning led to the only blemish on Morton's line, and eventually stuck him with his second loss in three August starts. The right-hander has been outstanding since the beginning of July, fanning double-digit batters in five of his nine trips to the mound with a 3.38 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 74:9 K:BB through 56 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Mariners.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Earns 13th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (13-4) allowed four runs on nine hits over six innings, striking out 10 and earning the win in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Mariners.

It's the fifth time this season Morton has recorded double-digit whiffs, and Saturday also marks the sixth time he hasn't walked a batter. He did give up a homer to Omar Narvaez in the fifth inning, but the bullpen allowed just one baserunner over the final three innings to preserve Morton's win. The 35-year-old right-hander has a 2.90 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 184 strikeouts in 149 innings this season and is expected to draw the lowly Tigers on Friday for his next start.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Strikes out nine in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (12-4) gave up two runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out nine through seven innings to take the loss against the Blue Jays on Monday.

Morton delivered another quality performance, but he was tagged with the hard-luck loss. This was an encouraging performance because the right-hander has a 4.85 ERA and a 26:6 K:BB in his last four starts. The 35-year-old is having an impressive season overall, posting a 2.77 ERA with 174 strikeouts. Morton will make his next start Saturday against the Mariners at T-Mobile Park.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Settles for no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton allowed four runs on seven hits with two walks and two strikeouts across 4.2 innings during a no-decision against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Morton's last start was also against the Red Sox, and given he allowed just two runs on five hits with 11 strikeouts in that outing, it's clear Boston hitters made some adjustments. If Morton had recorded one more out, he would have been in line for the win, but instead, the Red Sox took a lead off a homer during the first at-bat against the Rays bullpen. Still, Morton is having a great season, as he is 12-3 with a 2.78 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 165 strikeouts in 136 innings. He will make his next start at home against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Whiffs 11 in win over Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (12-3) picked up the win in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Red Sox, giving up two runs on five hits over seven innings while striking out 11.

It's the fourth time this season Morton has fanned double-digit batters, with three of those performances coming in his last five starts. He'll take a 2.60 ERA and 163:41 K:BB through 131.1 innings into his next outing Tuesday, a road rematch with Boston.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Falls to 11-3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (11-3) took the loss in Game 2 of the Rays' doubleheader with the Yankees on Thursday, giving up five earned runs on five hits over 5.2 innings, striking out four and walking four as Tampa Bay fell 5-1.

The righty hit a bump in the road in this contest, uncharacteristically struggling with his control in issuing four free passes. Morton is still having a fantastic season, as his ERA stands at 2.61 to go along with a 1.06 WHIP and a 152:41 K:BB through 124.1 innings. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, which will see him take on the Red Sox at home on Tuesday.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Starting Game 2 of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton is scheduled to start Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The Rays will stay on schedule with their pitching plans following Wednesday's postponement, giving Yonny Chirinos the ball for Game 1 while Morton starts Game 2. Across eight starts since the beginning of June, Morton owns an impressive 2.10 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 65:10 K:BB in 51.1 innings.

July 13, 2019 10:32 PM
Rays' Charlie Morton: Notches 11th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (11-2) earned the win in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader at Baltimore after giving up two runs on six hits across six innings. He struck out six and walked one.

Morton got himself into a bases-loaded jam in the fourth inning and gave up a two-run single, but he otherwise kept the Orioles in check during the nightcap. The 35-year-old has given up 10 runs (eight earned) and has a 41:6 K:BB in his last five starts (31.1 innings), and he'll look to continue that trend his next outing, which will likely come Thursday at Yankee Stadium.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Strikes out 10 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (10-2) struck out 10 while allowing one run on five hits and one walk through 5.2 innings to take the win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Morton found himself in a pitching duel with James Paxton and prevailed by only allowing a solo home run and generating 13 swinging strikes. The right-hander has back-to-back starts with 10 or more strikeouts and has an MLB-leading 83 strikeouts on his curveball. Morton's 2.32 ERA is the best in the American League heading into the All-Star break.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Dominates Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (9-2) allowed one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out 12 across seven innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Orioles.

Morton's sole blemish of the contest came on a solo home run by Chris Davis in the third inning. Otherwise, he held the Orioles without an extra-base hit and didn't allow a baserunner into scoring position until his final frame. It was his second double-digit strikeout performance of the season, and he's now racked up 132 punchouts across 107 innings. Morton has also supplied stellar ratios, maintaining a 2.36 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. He'll look to end the first half of the season with a strong start on Sunday against the Yankees.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Gets extra day before next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton's next scheduled start will be pushed back from Monday to Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Morton crossed the 100-pitch threshold in his last two starts -- just the fourth and fifth times he has done that this season -- so manager Kevin Cash decided to give him an extra day before his next outing. Morton will still square off with the same Orioles squad he would have faced Monday on normal rest.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Fans seven in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (8-2) was charged with the loss against the Twins on Wednesday after surrendering five runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk while striking out seven through 6.1 innings.

Despite allowing a season high in hits, Morton only surrendered singles. As usual, the right-hander had no problem missing bats, and he looked sharp overall against the potent Twins. Morton has now gone three consecutive outings without a win following a four-game winning streak. Regardless, the 35-year-old still carries an impressive 2.43 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 120:34 K:BB into a favorable matchup against Baltimore on Monday.

June 21, 2019 03:52 PM
Rays' Charlie Morton: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton didn't factor into the decision in Thursday's loss to the Athletics and allowed an earned run on four hits and two walks across 6.1 innings. He struck out six.

Morton turned in another trademark effort, but he received precious little run support from the Tampa offense while he was in the game. The veteran right-hander continued to flash his ability to consistently miss bats, notching 14 swinging strikes overall over his 105 pitches. Morton has now gone two straight outings without a victory following a four-appearance winning streak, as he'd suffered his first loss of the season against the Angels his previous time out. He'll look to get back on the right track in a scheduled road turn against the Twins next Tuesday or Wednesday.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Handed first loss of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (8-1) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine over six innings against the Angels.

Morton lost his first decision since last August after permitting three runs in the second inning on a Brian Goodwin RBI double and a David Fletcher home run and another tally on a Justin Bour solo home run in the fourth. The 35-year-old still has an outstanding 2.37 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and a 107:31 K:BB. Morton will look to rebound in his next start Thursday on the road in Oakland.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Shuts down Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (8-0) allowed two hits and two walks while firing seven scoreless innings Monday, striking out seven batters and earning the win over the Athletics.

The 35-year-old right-hander has been an absolute stud this season, especially in June. In two starts this month, Morton has tossed 14 shutout innings with a 15:2 K:BB. His season ERA is down to a wonderful 2.10 across 81.1 frames. He'll aim for a 9-0 start to the year against the visiting Angels on Saturday.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Blanks Tigers for seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (7-0) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing five hits over seven scoreless innings while striking out eight as the Rays handed the Tigers a 4-0 defeat.

The right-hander hasn't been on the losing end of a decision since last August, when he was still a member of the Astros. Morton has now delivered three straight quality starts and seven on the season, and he'll take a 2.30 ERA and 91:27 K:BB through 74.1 innings into his next outing Monday, at home against the A's.

May 31, 2019 10:16 PM
Rays' Charlie Morton: Seven strong innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (6-0) earned the win Thursday against the Twins by allowing two runs on four hits and no walks across seven innings. He struck out six.

Morton allowed just one baserunner through the first four innings and enjoyed a large lead before allowing runs in the fifth and sixth. He could easily have gone deeper into the game but was removed after just 87 pitches, although the lopsided nature of the game allowed the club to do so. Back-to-back quality starts have Morton's ERA at an excellent 2.54 heading into his next scheduled start at the Tigers on Wednesday.

Rays' Charlie Morton: Dominant in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (5-0) racked up 10 strikeouts and allowed just an earned run on three hits, two walks and a hit batsman over six innings in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

Morton was mostly masterful throughout his six frames, firing 73 of his 106 pitches for strikes. He generated a season-high number of strikeouts in the process and and has now put together quality starts in four of his last six trips to the mound. The veteran also continues to excel at keeping the ball in the yard, with Saturday's outing serving as his fifth over the last six without allowing a home run. Morton will look to add another chapter to his stellar season when he next takes the hill against the Twins on Thursday.

May 20, 2019 12:44 PM
Rays' Charlie Morton: Inefficient in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton gave up five runs (three earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out six through four innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Sunday.

Morton was ineffective and inefficient, throwing 88 pitches in only four innings and giving up five runs. Walks continue to be a problem: Over the last month, he has an impressive 10.5 K/9 but also a 3.7 BB/9. Morton will be looking to get back on track in his next start Friday at the Indians.
