DateQuestionAnswer
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is the ETA and potential of Bryan Morris? Things are looking up for the future in Pittsburgh.
(Joe from Myerstown)
Late 2011; No. 3 starter. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Bryan Morris' potential is what?
(aso5018 from Philadelphia)
Good No. 3 starter. Hint. The Pirates currently have zero of those. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Bryan Morris' start to the season? Can he regain top of the rotation potential status as a prospect? When would be a reasonable ETA for the major leagues?
(Seth from Nanty Glo PA)
I think it's all coming together for Morris, physically and mentally. He dominated at high A Bradenton and if he pitches well at AA Altoona then I think he'll spend August at AAA Indianapolis and have a chance to be in the majors by June, 2011. Also, always love stopping at Sheets on Route 22 in your town for a late-night snack on the way home from Curve games. (John Perrotto)
2008-08-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)My five year-old son was getting autographs at last night's Snappers-Loons game in Beloit. He only got three sigs from Loons' players, but one of them was Bryan Morris, who had been traded to the Pirates about six hours earlier. It's funny how my son just randomly dumb-lucks his way into meeting this kid who may never be any more famous than he is right now! BTW, what are the prospects of Morris being more than just a footnote in the Ramirez trade? Thanks.
(jlebeck66 from WI)
As somebody who grew up in a Triple-A city (Salt Lake City) and spent a great deal of time in a Single-A one (Walla Walla), I saw a lot of minor-league baseball as a kid, and I still cherish those memories and the random luck of seeing the likes of famous (Tony Gwynn in A-ball, on the same team as John Kruk no less) and infamous (floppy former overall #1 Al Chambers). The only foul ball I ever retrieved was autographed by Bob Geren, who a quarter-century later became the manager of the A's. So I can relate. Tell the kid to hold onto those autographs.

As for Morris' chances of being more than a footnote, he certainly looks pretty good on paper; his numbers are about as good as you could hope for a guy coming back from Tommy John surgery. His upside, from what I can tell, is as a mid-rotation starter or possibly a late-inning reliever. You could do worse when it comes to putting your money on an A-ball pitcher. (Jay Jaffe)
