by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Morales (5-4) pitched five clean innings before serving up a solo home run in the sixth, and he's now surrendered 18 home runs in just 87 1/3 innings this season. He owns a 5.26 ERA and 62:36 K:BB ratio in 22 appearances (13 starts). He isn't expected to draw another start before the All-Star break.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Rockies pitcher Franklin Morales threw the ball well in a spot start Thursday, though it came in a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Morales actually settled for a no-decision, as he allowed just two runs -- one earned -- in five innings of work. He scattered four hits and a pair of walks in the game, while striking out four on 89 pitches.

Morales stepped into the rotation due to an injury, and could remain there for a few turns. He has a 5.51 ERA and 4-4 record in 21 appearances and 12 starts, and his next start is currently scheduled for Tuesday against the Padres.

Morales entered the game in the top of the ninth with runners on first and second and two out, and ended the threat with a weak groundball. He worked a scoreless top of the 10th as well, and earned the win when the Rockies walked off in the bottom half of the inning.

Morales is 4-4 on the season, though his first three wins came as a starter. He has tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing four hits as a reliever.

Franklin Morales takes no-decision in quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Rockies starting pitcher Franklin Morales tossed his first quality start in nearly a month Tuesday, but had nothing to show for it in a 5-4 win over the Giants.

The Rockies would go on to win the game in walkoff fashion, but Morales wasn’t around to factor into the decision at that point. He lasted six innings in the start, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk, while striking out six in the no-decision.

Morales remains winless over his last four starts, after opening the season 3-1. He is 3-3 with a 5.30 ERA heading into his next outing, set for Sunday in Atlanta.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

He also failed to strikeout a batter for the first time all season, as he threw just 55 of 99 pitches for strikes.

Morales is now 3-3 on the season with a 5.40 ERA in 46 2/3 innings of work. His next start is set for Tuesday against the Giants.

Franklin Morales hit hard yet again vs. Rangers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Rockies starting pitcher Franklin Morales' struggles continued Thursday, as he was hit hard for the third start in a row, in a 5-0 loss to the Rangers.

Morales was tagged for five runs -- four earned -- over six innings of work, though he did pitch into the seventh inning before being chased. He allowed a double and hit a batter to open the seventh before being pulled, after allowing six hits and three walks. He struck out five batters as well, while throwing 55 of 94 pitches for strikes.

Morales has allowed at least four earned runs in three straight starts, leading his ERA to rise to 5.18 through seven starts. He is 3-2 heading into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Kansas City.


Franklin Morales surrenders four runs in win vs. Diamondbacks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Rockies pitcher Franklin Morales gave up four earned runs on seven hits and two walks in five innings while striking out two Saturday, but he still came away with the win in his team's 8-5 victory over the Diamondbacks Monday.

Every time the Colorado offense gave Morales (3-1) a lead, he gave it right back, with a second-inning solo home run tying things up at one before the Colorado starter gave up two runs in the third to tie things at three. The Rockies gave Morales another lead in the fourth, but he gave it right back in the bottom of the fifth. After the offense scored three more in the sixth, they wisely prevented Morales from doing more damage by removing him from the game. He owns a 4.40 ERA and 23:12 K:BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings going into Saturday's home matchup with the Mets.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Morales struggled early in the season, but has found his way since. He has allowed two runs over his last two starts, both wins, after he was tagged for nine runs in his first two. He carries a 2-1 record and 3.86 ERA into his next start, set for Monday in Arizona.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) With Tyler Chatwood (hamstring) expected to return from the disabled list and make his first start of the season Sunday against the Giants, the Rockies could keep Jordan Lyles in the rotation but Franklin Morales could be the odd man out in the rotation, according to the Denver Post on Friday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles is in a good spot to keep the fifth starter job, according to the Denver Post

With Tyler Chatwood slated to return soon, the club needs to move a pitcher out of the rotation in order to make room for Chatwood. Both Lyles and Franklin Morales would seem to be the most obvious candidates to go. Lyles has been solid over two starts, posting a 3.86 ERA.

Morales gave up six earned runs Tuesday against the White Sox. He also struggled against the Marlins in his first appearance.
