Charlie Morton agrees to one-year deal with Atlanta Braves

Charlie Morton is in agreement on a one-year, $15 million deal with the Atlanta Braves, according to a report from MLB Insider Jeff Passan.

Fantasy Impact

Morton had a 4.74 ERA with the Rays in 2020, but he was coming off of three straight excellent seasons and his 3.45 FIP and .355 BABIP indicate some bad luck. The Braves have some high-end young talent in their rotation but struggled with depth after a number of injuries in 2020. Morton should slot into the rotation behind Ian Anderson, Max Fried, and Mike Soroka to give Atlanta one of the more enviable rotations in baseball.
