Charlie Morton had the TJ surgery, after some time in the bigs.

This must be a conscious developmental strategy by the F/O. Therefore the adherence to a limited repetoire in the low minors, with strict limits on innings pitched.

I wouldn’t worry about it for a couple years. Even this upcoming season, his main focus will still be the fastball command and building up his inning totals

In the GC league the Bucs really only stress the fastball.

It’s much better than him having the correct mental approach and lacking the physical tools. It just sounds like the issue is more from a lack of experience.

Otherwise, we have a power reliever.

His problem is more mechanics, rushing throws, mental mistakes. I think that is something that can be fixed with time and experience.
He’s twenty years old with 142 pro games at shortstop over three seasons, he is still early in the learning stage

Seems slightly above average if he can be 6′s at arm and field then I wouldn’t see why he can’t stick at SS
