Charlie Morton signs one-year extension with Braves

Charlie Morton has agreed to a one-year, $20 million contract extension with the Atlanta Braves. There is also a $20 million club option for 2024.

Fantasy Impact

Morton's career will continue on after a productive 2021. The 38-year-old has a 4.29 ERA and 200 strikeouts in 167.2 innings and should continue to be a solid fantasy starter in Atlanta for the next few years.

Charlie Morton allows six runs in no decision on Sunday

Charlie Morton pitched 4 2/3 innings allowing six earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four during Atlanta's win over Philadelphia on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Morton was pushed around by the Phillies, allowing two home runs to Kyle Schwarber and allowing a season-high six runs overall. Morton has been extremely contrasting all season as he has 12 starts allowing four earned runs or more while also producing 14 starts where he's allowed two runs or fewer. Since he seems to be alternating nice starts with clunkers maybe he will put together a decent outing in his next start against the Mets on Saturday. Overall on the year, Morton is 9-6 with a 4.29 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with a 200:62 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 30 starts.

Charlie Morton strikes out nine in win on Tuesday

Charlie Morton pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing one earned run on three hits and three walks while striking out nine during Atlanta's win over Washington on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The only blemish on Morton's night was a Vaughn Grissom error that led to a run, shutting down the Nationals otherwise. It was a great bounceback game for Morton who has had a couple rought outings, as he induced an excellent 19 swinging strikes, nine strikeouts and an elite 40 percent CSW over 92 pitches. As usual, Morton is continuing to be unpredictable but should have a shot at a nice start in his next matchup against Phillies. His record now stands at 9-6 with a 4.09 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with a 196:59 strikeout-t-walk ratio over 29 starts.

Charlie Morton allows four earned runs in loss on Wednesday

Charlie Morton pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing four earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven during Atlanta's loss to San Francisco on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Morton pitched into the sixth inning but allowed four earned runs for the third time in his last four starts. He did manage a solid 14 swinging strikes, seven strikeouts and a decent 27 percent CSW on 95 pitches but also walked two batters for the third straight game. He's been the epitome of inconsistent this season and has even seen his strikeout totals diminish recently, punching out 23 batters over his last four starts. Overall on the year, Morton is 8-6 with a disappointing 4.17 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 187 strikeouts over 27 starts. He'll next take the mound in a home matchup against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Charlie Morton allows four runs in win on Friday

Charlie Morton pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five during Atlanta's win over Seattle on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Morton matched his season high with three home runs against but was sharp enough otherwise to come away with the win. He's seen his strikeout totals slowly decrease recently, producing a 16:7 strikeout-to-walk ratio over his last three games but is still 10th in the league overall with 180 strikeouts. With the win, he improves his record to 8-5 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 27 starts. He'll next toe the rubber in a matchup against the Giants on Wednesday.
