Brandon Morrow

Is this the year he finally breaks out? He is the ultimate tease, but I think:

14 -9, 210k, 3.85+ ERA.

I always felt he was a thisclose to being an Ace.

He's going between rounds 12-14 in Yahoo leagues. He's absolutely worth it at that point in the draft. Take the K's, and hopes he lives up to his metrics of the last 2 seasons.

172 IP 187K 4.08 ERA 1.29 WHIP 10 Wins. Can he beat that? Sure. But he might be the anti Matt Cain and his ERA will not reach his FIP

Over the last three seasons, he's had the highest K/9 of any starting pitcher at 10.12. Lincecum is second at 9.79. And since coming to Toronto (as already mentioned), he's had FIP/XFIPs at least a run better than his actual ERA.

I'll always be a buyer on him, especially considering those peripherals. Now it's possible that this is a trend and he'll never bring his fantasy stats in line with his underlying metrics, but at his ADP, I don't really see an SP with that upside.

IIRC the Jays were joking about how he didn't get his first double player last season until late August/September. His luck has to turn around one of these years...
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I've got no confidence in Morrow breaking out. Going to be a great source of k and middling wins but not a plus player for era or whip.
If you're looking for a Jays starter to put it all together this year Brett Cecil is your man. He's in awesome shape and seems like he has gotten his head together.

Morrow is too much of an enigma for me, he doesn't walk that many people and he doesn't get hit that hard but for some reason his ERA and whip are always really high, much higher than i'd expect for a pitcher of his caliber.
