Padres | Brandon Morrow earns second victory

Sun, 03 May 2015 06:17:42 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow allowed two earned runs while striking out four batters over six innings against the Colorado Rockies to record his second win of the season Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of a poor showing in Coors Field, Morrow ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has limited opponents to two earned runs or fewer in each of his four starts. On the season, he has a 2.73 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP and 23 strikeouts through 33 innings. He is a great low-priced pitching option for FantasyScore players, especially when starting in pitcher-friendly PETCO Park and against favorable matchups. Seasonal owners can turn to Morrow in deep mixed leagues, too.

Padres | Brandon Morrow dazzles in season debut

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 06:28:42 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow struck out seven batters through seven-scoreless innings against the San Francisco Giants Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Although he failed to leave with the win, it was an excellent debut for Morrow ($3,000, 6.0% of cap). At his cap hit, Morrow could be an excellent bargain for FantasyScore players in his next start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, especially at pitcher-friendly PETCO Park. He could also warrant a speculative add in seasonal leagues, as injuries have been the only thing holding Morrow back from being a fantasy force. At worst, he can likely help pad your strikeout total.

Padres | Brandon Morrow wins rotation spot

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 08:08:26 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow has won the fifth spot in the starting rotation, according to manager Bud Black.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) pitched in only 13 games last season and is looking for a bounce back season with the Padres. Morrow should be an option in NL-only leagues, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Padres | Brandon Morrow still battling fifth spot

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 05:12:56 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow is still battling with SP Odrisamer Despaigne for the fifth spot in the starting rotation, according to manager Bud Black. Through 12 2/3 innings pitched this spring, Morrow has a 4.26 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow has tossed just 87 2/3 innings over the past two seasons, and other than a dominant stretch in 2012, he can be typecast as a high-volume strikeout artist with poor ratios. Morrow is best left to the final rounds as a late-round flier in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, if he wins the rotation job. There is upside, but the injury history is concerning.

Padres | Brandon Morrow has solid outing

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 18:14:52 -0800

San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow allowed two hits over two scoreless innings in Cactus League action Friday, March 6, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow is competing with Odrisamer Despaigne for the final rotation job in San Diego. If he is able to secure that final spot he would be a solid play in NL-only fantasy formats and deeper mixed play.

Padres | Two favorites for SD's No. 5 spot

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 15:27:40 -0800

San Diego Padres SPs Brandon Morrow and Odrisamer Despaigne are "maybe out there a touch" in the race for the No. 5 starting rotation spot early in spring, according to manager Bud Black. Morrow opted to sign with San Diego because they were going to give him a legitimate rotation shot, instead of pitching in relief. SPs Robbie Erlin and Matt Wisler are other candidates for the job.

Fantasy Tip: Even at age 30 with a lengthy injury history, Morrow seems like the more intriguing option here. Whoever wins the No. 5 spot in SD will be worth a dart throw at the tail end of deep mixed league drafts. At the very least, the winner of this competition should be owned in all NL-only leagues and could be a very valuable daily piece, especially when starting games at Petco.
