8-10 teams have shown interest in Morton

According to MLB.com, 8 to 10 teams have expressed interest in free agent starter Charlie Morton. The Mets should be one of the teams who have interrest in the 37 year old righty. Morton is a great fit as a veteran guy, who has been very solid late in his career.

Morton did struggle to a 4.74 ERA over 9 starts, however after his IL stint, he pitched to a respectable 4.03 ERA. MLB Network’s own Al Leiter mentioned lowering his arm slot as a big help in his succes after his IL stint. In the regular season, but even more in the playoffs.

Still, Morton has solid expected numbers in 2020 (.239/.293/.382) in 2020. I would definitely take that. It shows in his expected ERA, which was almost a run lower (3.89).

Morton numbers indicate that he is still a very valuable mid rotation starter and I would love the Mets to sign him on an one year 8-12 mil dollar deal! He still has it.
