Morton has successfully carried over the improvements he made as a pitcher during his two seasons in Houston. His walk rate can be a bit of an issue at times, but he misses a ton of bats and is also quite adept at limiting hard contact. He's also managed to stay healthy this year, something that's been an issue for him in the past.

Morton followed an improbable late-career renaissance with an even better 2018. In his most innings pitched (167) since 2011, he etched out a 3.13 ERA and 201 strikeouts. Yet he wore down as the season transpired, as his K rate dropped seven points to 24.2% after the All-Star break. The 35-year-old has looked even better in 2019, posting a 2.77 ERA and 30.9 K% in 26 starts backed by a 2.67 FIP. He's a top-12 starter for now, but having never worked 175 or more innings in a season, investors should keep last year's late swoon in mind.

Morton was about as safe of a late-round starting pitcher steal as you'll ever find.Even so, no one anticipated the year he is having with a 250 K pace to go with incredible ratios and perhaps 16 or 17 wins if he keeps it up in the second half.
