#Braves' Alex Anthopuolos on bolstering rotation with Charlie Morton and Drew Smyly signings: "We had an extremely short list of guys we would consider, basically two to three. And obviously we got two. These were the two guys that were at the top of our list, Charlie and Drew."
Charlie Morton is the best. On a 1yr deal, great. But a 5yr low in velo, even if he got a lot of it back in October, combined w/ shoulder stuff… combined w/ Smyly’s up & down career… possible regression from Soroka, Anderson, Fried… so many possible outcomes for Braves staff.

#EnMovimiento: Charlie Morton firma por una temporada con @LosBravos
Charlie Morton is headed to Atlanta.
Since 2017, the new @Braves
pitcher is 47-18, has twice been to the World Series & twice to the All-Star Game.
But, his talent goes beyond baseball.
Charlie Morton struck out 67 batters over six starts and 41 appearances for the M-Braves in 2007.
Ever since Travis Williams said he wanted the Pirates to be more like the Rays, the Rays:
- Lost Charlie Morton to FA and the Braves
- Said they were going to trade Blake Snell
- Star player arrested
Sounds to me like the Rays are wanting to be more like the Pirates.
Charlie Morton's wife is one lucky gal.
I’m pretty sure @JasonIsbell
is more excited about landing Charlie Morton than he would’ve been getting nominated for a well-deserved Grammy or 4.
