Pirates | Charlie Morton set to join Bucs

Fri, 22 May 2015 10:38:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton (hip) allowed two runs and four walks while striking out nine in 6 1/3 innings in what was believed to be his final rehab start for Class AAA Indianapolis Tuesday, May 19. He's recovering from hip surgery to fix his labrum in September of last year. Morton is expected to take the rotation spot of SP Vance Worley.

Fantasy Tip: Morton ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should be added in all deep mixed and AL-only leagues before he's activated from the DL. You should probably take a wait-and-see approach with him at FantasyScore, but he could eventually become a nice matchup play, especially when pitching at home at pitcher-friendly PNC Park.

Pirates | Vance Worley dominant at home

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 21:03:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Vance Worley allowed one unearned run and six hits with two walks over 5 2/3 innings in a win against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, April 22. He also struck out five batters.

Fantasy Tip: While Worley ($3,300; 6.6% of cap) labored a bit in this one, he is still 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA in two home outings this season. In 2014, he was 5-2 with a 2.28 ERA in seven home assignments, so there is something about PNC Park that agrees with Worley. When he is on the bump at home, FantasyScore owners need to remember him.

Pirates | Vance Worley joining rotation

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 06:48:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Vance Worley is expected to start against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 11, in place of SP Charlie Morton (hip) who will begin the season on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Worley ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has had fleeting success at times throughout his career, including last season when he went 8-4 with a 2.85 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. However, he leaves a lot to be desired in the strikeout department and has averaged just 5.9 K/9 over the past two seasons. He is best left to NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. His start against the Bewers doesn't project favorably for FantasyScore contests, either.
