Lefthanded pitchers with arm strength are always commodities, and Morris is more than just a fastball. He can work at 90-93 mph early in outings, though he tends to settle in more at 89-91. Morris's two-seam fastball has outstanding late sink, and consistently generates poor contact. His best secondary pitch is his changeup, which flashes plus and projects as an above-average pitch. It shows late tumbling action and some glove-side cut in the upper 70s. Morris has a full, 6-foot-5 frame and knows how to pitch with his core. There's some glove-side lean to his delivery, which allows him to get more downward plane on his stuff. Morris has solid command of his arsenal, with the ability to move any of his pitches to either side of the plate, though he lacks consistency at times. Morris projects as a solid middle reliever who can pitch to contact because of the late movement on his pitches. He has also shown the ability to sustain his stuff on back-to-back days.
