Drafted in the 8th round (233rd overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2015 (signed for $30,000).
View Draft ReportA four-year starter, Morrison has a career 1.85 ERA as he just figures out how to generate outs. He'll turn his slow low 70s curveball into a sharper high 70s curve and he'll mix in a sweepy slider. As a starter a few times a game he'll drop down to sidearm to mess with a hitter's timing. Morrison's mid-to-high 80s fastball makes him hard to project as a pro starter despite his success. His crafty approach may work in a move to the pen as a senior sign.
