Morris will rejoin the big club to offer a fresh arm out of the bullpen after Sunday's starter, Garrett Richards, lasted just 2.1 innings. He owns a 4.26 ERA across 6.1 major-league innings this season and a 4.96 ERA across 16.1 Triple-A frames, so look for the 25-year-old to fill a low-leverage relief role during his time with the Angels.

The Angels optioned Morris to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Morris was unlikely to be available for at least the next couple of days after covering 2.1 innings in long relief during a Saturday loss to the Athletics, so the Angels decided to ship him back to the minors in order to make room for some fresh arms out of the bullpen. With the Angels also moving JC Ramirez (forearm) to the 10-day disabled list, Eduardo Paredes and Felix Pena were promoted from Salt Lake to fortify the relief ranks.
The Angels recalled Morris from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Morris was traded from the Braves to the Angels on Tuesday and didn't have to wait long before being promoted. Friday's starter Parker Bridwell lasted only 1.2 innings, leaving six Angels relievers to cover the remainder of the game. Morris replaces Bridwell on the 25-man roster and should serve in a low -leverage bullpen role for the Halos.
Morris was acquired by the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
To make room for Morris on the 40-man roster, the Angels designated Troy Scribner for assignment. Morris spent most of the 2017 season at Triple-A Gwinnett, where he logged a 3.09 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 30 games (46.2 innings).

A roster spot was needed for the addition of Josh Ravin, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday, and Morris was the corresponding roster casualty. The 25-year-old righty posted a 3.09 ERA and 53:23 K:BB across 46.2 innings with Gwinnett in 2017. He'll take a spin through waivers to determine where he'll open the 2018 campaign.

Morris was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
The 24-year-old has been good out of Atlanta's bullpen this season, posting a 1.23 ERA with nine strikeouts in 7.1 innings of work. Nonetheless, he wound up being the roster casualty when a spot was needed for Tuesday's starter Lucas Sims. Morris very well could be back in the big leagues soon if he continues to pitch like he did in July.
Morris was promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
Morris has been pitching well at the Triple-A level recently, allowing just two earned runs in his past 10 innings of work out of the bullpen. During that span he holds a 17:4 K:BB, which has been indicative of his overall numbers for Gwinnett throughout the 2017 season. The 24-year-old will make his first trip up to the majors for Atlanta, and has appeared in only one big-league game in his career, allowing five earned runs in less than an inning while with the Mets in 2015. Morris will serve as depth out of the pen for Atlanta while he is with the club.

The right-hander was touched up for five runs in his only big-league appearance last year, which lasted two-thirds of an inning for the Mets. The 24-year-old put together a fine stretch with Double-Mississippi, though, boasting a 2.27 ERA in 25 appearances, with 50 strikeouts in 35.2 innings. If Morris can work on his control (21 walks in that time), perhaps a bullpen role with Atlanta awaits.
Morris allowed one run off two hits and a walk over the weekend in his first game after battling the flu.
It was first reported that Morris was dealing with flu-like symptoms on March 2, but he finally returned to action after more than a week of rest.

Morris has been battling a case of the flu in recent days, David O'Brien of the AJC reports.
The right-hander is one of a few Braves players currently dealing with flu-like symptoms. Morris has made one appearance this spring, striking out three batters over 2.0 scoreless innings. He's one of several hurlers vying for a spot in the bullpen on the Opening Day roster.
