Pirates announce post-break rotation plans
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:55 am ET) Starting pitcher Francisco Liriano, who returned from the 15-day disabled list Sunday at Cincinnati, will start the first game out of the All-Star break for the Pirates, according to MLB.com.

He will be followed in a three-game series vs. Colorado by Charlie Morton and Jeff Locke. Edinson Volquez will then open a series against the Dodgers on July 21, and he will be followed by Vance Worley before the rotation resets.

Charlie Morton unable to factor into decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/14) Pirates starting pitcher Charlie Morton took a no-decision Saturday night against the Reds in Cincinnati. The right-hander permitted five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings of work. Home runs to Chris Heisey and Todd Frazier nearly proved to be costly for the 30-year-old.

Morton enters the break with a 3.32 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 19 starts (119 1/3 innings). The Pirates have yet to announce their post-break pitching plans, so his next start remains uncertain.
Charlie Morton good, but not must-add
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/8/14) Yeah, I'll say there's some legitimacy to Charlie Morton's 2.80 ERA over his last seven starts. Anyone who doesn't isn't paying enough attention. He had a 2.67 ERA over his final 11 starts last year as well.

But what isn't legitimate are his 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings during that stretch. Like most ground ball pitchers, he's not a bat-misser, having never averaged even 7.0 strikeouts per nine innings in the big leagues. At least up until recently, he aimed for quick outs by pitching to contact, trusting it would be weak enough to result in an out. It's the M.O. of pitchers like Tim Hudson, Henderson Alvarez, Mike Leake and Kyle Gibson, and it certainly has its place in Fantasy.

Of course, more contact by its very nature yields more hits, so the downside to a ground ball specialist is a high WHIP relative to the ERA and, of course, a low strikeout rate. I'm not willing to suggest that after seven starts Morton has reinvented himself, so he's just as susceptible. It's enough to make him an iffy option in mixed leagues most weeks, though like Leake, you'll want to keep him around for the two-start weeks.

Charlie Morton twirls a gem in no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/8/14) Pirates starting pitcher Charlie Morton twirled a gem, but was not backed by any run support on Monday against the Cardinals, settling for a no-decision. The right-hander yielded one hit and two walks while striking out five over seven scoreless innings.

Over his last three starts covering 20 innings, Morton has allowed only three earned runs. He owns a 3.10 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 18 starts (113 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at Cincinnati.
Charlie Morton tosses quality start in win over D-Backs
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/2/14) Pirates starting pitcher Charlie Morton put together another quality start, but this time with a win Wednesday night over the Diamondbacks. The right-hander permitted one run on five hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings of a 5-1 victory.

Morton owns a 3.30 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 17 starts (106 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Monday at St. Louis. He 2-6 with a 4.37 ERA in nine starts away from home this season.
