News 
 Charlie Morton fired 2 1/3 scoreless innings on Monday against the Orioles.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Mon, Mar 2nd

Sun, Mar 8th
 Charlie Morton says that he is considering retirement following the 2020 baseball season.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma

Notes 
 Morton only got better after leaving the Astros, setting career bests in innings pitched, ERA, WHIP, and strikeout percentage. Batters simply don't hit his curveball, which he throws more than a third of the time, and his fastball is nearly equally as effective. In a dynasty or keeper format, things may be different, as Morton speaks of retirement often. For this year, however, there is zero reason for concern.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Kimbrel waited to sign until months into the season, and the results weren't pretty. He battled injury and was entirely ineffective, pitching to an 8.10 ERA and walking more than five batters per nine innings. Whether the complete lack of control was a continuing trend or just due to rust/injuries. But, either way, the price on Kimbrel should be the cheapest in years, and if you're waiting on saves, he's as good an option to take a chance on as anyone.
