SP - ATL
The Braves exercised their $20 million team option on SP Charlie Morton.
Morton will return to the Braves after posting a 3.64 ERA and 183 strikeouts last season. The 40-year-old could be entering his final MLB season and should provide the Braves with yet another solid middle of the rotation option for the 2024 season.
In the Braves' 3-1 loss to the Dodgers, Morton lasted just four innings, surrendering six hits and three walks, resulting in two earned runs.
With a 3.32 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season, this disappointing performance raises concerns about his consistency and reliability moving forward.
With a solid six innings pitched, only allowing three hits and two walks, Morton continues his strong season, boasting a 3.29 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and an impressive 10.1 K/9 rate.
Fantasy owners can rely on Morton for consistent production down the stretch.
