2024 Fantasy Outlook
Morris appeared in just six major league games in 2023 compiling a 6.75 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in eight relief innings after suffering a late strain in February which kept him out of action until June. Once thought of as the next in a long list of Cleveland starters ready to dominate, Morris was much better in 2022 where he earned a 2.28 ERA, 1.39 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 23.2 innings. The former top prospect was traded to the Yankees in December and is currently slated for a relief role. Morris gives New York a depth option that could fill in in the rotation should they need him to in 2024. Read Past Outlooks

June 1, 2024
Morris was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following the Yankees' 6-2 win over San Francisco on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Morris was called up Thursday, failing to appear in a contest out of the bullpen before being sent back down to Triple-A. The right-hander will now have to wait for his next chance to join the major-league roster. In a corresponding move, Cody Poteet was recalled from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will start Saturday's contest versus the Giants.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2022
2021
Morris had an excellent run to close the 2021 season, showcasing big stuff and improved strike throwing while appearing nearly ready for big-league rotation work. Unfortunately, he suffered a shoulder strain in camp and didn't begin a rehab assignment until mid-July. Morris was dominant in nine minor-league appearances, logging a 1.69 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 39 strikeouts in 21.1 innings. He got a September call-up and was used a couple times as a traditional starter while working as an opener or traditional reliever in his other five appearances. Morris's 12.0 BB% in the majors was his worst such mark as a pro, and he should see positive regression in that department if he's healthy in 2023. The 26-year-old righty throws a high-spin mid-90s four-seamer and primarily mixes in an upper-80s cutter and low-80s changeup. The changeup has a chance to be a dominant offering (47.6 Whiff%) if he is locating his fastball early in counts. Cleveland has a lot of rotation depth, and Morris won't be able to log a full season's worth of starts in 2023, but he has a high ceiling on a per-start basis and could throw 100-plus innings in the majors in some capacity.
Morris, who turned 25 in November and was added to the Guardians' 40-man roster this offseason, primarily relies on a 94-97 mph four-seamer with excellent movement and location characteristics, an elite changeup that generated an elite Whiff% last season and an 80-mph curveballl that registered a .204 xWOBA. Morris also mixes in a 90-mph cutter that he locates extremely well. This pitch mix allowed the 6-foot-4 righty to log a 1.62 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 93:20 K:BB in 61 innings, primarily at Double-A and Triple-A. His start to the season was delayed by a shoulder injury, but he threw between three and five innings without skipping a start from July 1 on. The rotation is pretty crowded in Cleveland, but Morris is too good to not force his way into the mix sometime this season. He lacks big name value, but from a stuff and results standpoint, he's up there with the best pitching prospects in the game.
Morris has only one season of professional ball under his belt, and he was not among the players chosen to train at Cleveland's alternate site in 2020. However, it wasn't entirely a lost campaign for the right-hander as he was part of the team's fall instructional league roster. Morris registered a 4.35 ERA across 89 innings of A-ball in 2019, though his 3.02 FIP was considerably more promising. He possesses a three-pitch arsenal highlighted by a mid-90s fastball and complemented by a decent slider and changeup. During his 2019 campaign, Morris posted a 11.2 K/9 and registered an impressive 13.8 SwStr% while notching a palatable 2.7 BB/9. He gave up too many hits, however -- opponents batted .271 against him -- suggesting that he still has some command issues to work out. With another year or two of seasoning, Morris could claim a spot in the Cleveland rotation.
