Charlie Morton came over in the Nate McLouth trade and he's been very good in 9 starts, though he's averaging just under 5 IP/start. His K/BB is 1.88 and his HR/9 is just 0.81. He throws strikes and gets ground balls (48.6% GB%) with his 4 pitch repertoire of fastball, slider, curveball and changeup. To this point his curve has been his most effective pitch but we're talking about less than 45 innings. Also, we know how our hitters tend to fare when facing a pitcher for the first time. Be prepared for a low scoring game.
