Stat Review
How does Eli Morgan compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Morgan shifted to the bullpen last year after making 18 starts during a solid rookie campaign in 2021. The 26-year-old opened 2022 in long relief, but quickly ascended to high leverage work after month-long scoreless stretch, during which he compiled a 27:4 K:BB ratio and 0.50 WHIP over 20 innings. Morgan wasn't as sharp in the second half (4.26 ERA, 1.26 WHIP), but still managed five wins, 10 holds and an excellent 0.89 WHIP over a career-high 66.2 innings (50 appearances). Morgan's 28.1% strikeout and 5.1% walk rates were well above league average, while his 5.54 K/BB was 14th-best among qualified relievers. There is upside here from a pitcher who could have a flexible role throughout 2023, albeit without the name value of Tanner Houck or Garrett Whitlock.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Due for regression
PCleveland Guardians  AAA
May 5, 2023
Morgan has posted an excellent 0.64 ERA through 11 relief appearances, but his 1.36 WHIP suggests the former number isn't sustainable.
ANALYSIS
Morgan has been the king of escaping jams, allowing multiple hits in four of his last six appearances with only one run crossing the plate. The 26-year-old has flashed strong command, but as yet he hasn't been entrusted with the kind of high-leverage role in the Cleveland bullpen his ERA might otherwise predict.
