Brandon Morrow struggled in a no-decision against the Pirates on Friday, allowing three runs on 11 hits in his five innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander walked only one but struck out just a pair. He still struggled with his command though, and needed 102 pitches to get through his five frames. For the season, he owns a disappointing 5.93 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and 26/17 K/BB ratio through his first 27 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Phillies at home on Wednesday.

Brandon Morrow had another bout of extreme wildness in Saturday's start against the Red Sox, issuing a career-high eight walks in just 2 2/3 innings of work.

Morrow didn't allow a hit in the ballgame, struck out one and was charged with four earned runs. He departed after issuing a bases loaded walk to Grady Sizemore in the third inning, and A.J. Pierzynski greeted reliever Chad Jenkins with a grand slam to complete the damage. Now sporting a 6.04 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through his first 22 1/3 innings, it wouldn't be surprising to see Morrow booted from the rotation to figure things out.

Brandon Morrow struck out six and allowed only two runs but lasted just five innings in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

He yielded three hits, walked a pair and was his usual inefficient self with 95 pitches in five-plus frames. Morrow has 17 strikeouts in 14 2/3 innings this season but holds a 5.03 ERA and has gone six innings just once in four starts. He'll go up against the Red Sox next weekend.

Brandon Morrow needed 98 pitches to get through 3 2/3 innings Tuesday, taking a no-decision in the Blue Jays' win over the Twins.

It was a frustrating outing for Morrow after he flashed some serious promise his last time out against the Astros. On Tuesday, he walked four batters and allowed four hits but gave up just two runs, a problem of efficiency more than anything else. It's a shame, too, as Aaron Loup, the pitcher who replaced Morrow, earned the win instead. Morrow will try to last longer Sunday when the Jays travel to take on the Indians.

Brandon Morrow struck out nine Astros while allowing three runs in six innings in a win Wednesday.

It's Morrow's high-strikeout game since Oct. 3, 2012, and maybe the best velocity he's had since 2012 as well. We still wouldn't rush to pick him up in mixed leagues, but the encouraging showing gives some hope that he might be useful in shallow formats again before long.

Brandon Morrow gave up four runs in five innings to take a loss to the Rays on Thursday.

Morrow had an impressive finale in an otherwise ugly spring, but he wasn't able to keep it going tonight. It could have been worse; he gave up four straight hits to begin the third, but he was then able to induce a double-play ball from James Loney and get Logan Forsythe to fly out, holding the Rays to three runs. We don't recommend showing much patience with Morrow in fantasy leagues.

Brandon Morrow shut out the Mets for 5 2/3 innings, striking out eight, in Montreal on Saturday.

It's definitely the best Morrow has looked this spring, as he lowered his ERA from 9.00 to 5.74. Still, his fastball doesn't have as much zip as it once did, and his strikeout rate hasn't been the same since 2011. He rates as a fringe AL-only pitcher right now.

Brandon Morrow gave up four runs in five innings Monday in a loss to the Phillies.

Morrow had made his previous couple of appearances in unofficial game, but he hasn't looked very good at any point during the spring. In his official appearances, he's given up 10 runs and struck out six in 10 innings. We recommend staying away from him in fantasy leagues.

Facing the Canada junior national team, Brandon Morrow allowed two runs -- one earned -- in three innings Tuesday.

Morrow walked three and allowed four hits. Nothing he's done so far this spring has been very encouraging. A bounce-back season remains a possibility, but there seem like plenty of better upside picks among AL starters.
