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.
