Pirates | Charlie Morton to start Thursday

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton will make his season debut on Thursday, June 13, one day short of the one-year anniversary of his date of Tommy John surgery. The opportunity arose because of the need to place SP Wandy Rodriguez (forearm) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Morton may be an option for NL-only fantasy owners and, perhaps, eventually for those in deep mixed leagues, but it would be wise to take a wait-and-see approach. The righty was in the midst of a mild breakthrough last season before the elbow injury sidelined him, and control remains a huge problem.
