MLB News: Rays Net Veteran Starter Morton

Multiple sources report that the Tampa Bay Rays and Free Agent Charlie Morton have agreed to a deal worth $30 Million over two years — the largest contract of Morton’s career.

Until now, Morton has earned just around $40 Million over 11 years in the majors — the solid starter has finally received his due. His fabulous 2018 campaign in which he pitched to a 3.13 ERA over 167 frames gave him the leverage he needed to net his worth, and he now has the chance to compete with an underrated team that managed to win 90 games in the league’s toughest division last year.

This 35 year-old World Series Champion deserves every penny of what he’s been given. He is a driven man who keeps his head down, and plays the game the way it should be played. We’re expecting big things from him in 2019…
