I’ll say 14 with a 7 inning outing. Line: 7 IP, 0ER, 2H, 0BB, 14K. Morton very bad on road. This looks like a real bad game.

His fastball and change both have some cutting action, his cutter moves a little more and his slider breaks a little more than the cutter. He doesn’t throw anything with arm-side tail or a curve that has significantly more break. There is still movement involved, though.

But yes, he also has very good control.

I guess he either has pinpoint command or some kind of delivery deception or his luck is about to run out.
