Atlanta Braves sign RHP Charlie Morton to 1-year, $20 million deal for 2023

The Atlanta Braves signed veteran pitcher Charlie Morton to a one-year extension, the team announced Friday.

Morton, 38, will earn $20 million in 2023, his 16th year in the big leagues. The deal includes a team option for 2024, also worth $20 million.

Morton is in his second stint with Atlanta after being drafted by the organization in 2002. He returned to the Braves in 2021 and made 33 regular-season starts, then four more in the postseason, before fracturing his leg in the World Series.

Charlie's back to leading the league in HBP, tied with Lodolo at 18 plunks. He's #16 on the career list with 156, and another 18 would tie him with Charlie Hough for #10.

Moreover, everyone ahead of Morton on the career HBP list has at least 3000 IP; Morton has just under 1800.

Very shaky 2022 for Morton, most recently his inability to get through 5 innings last night after the Braves handed him a lead.

Last year, he completed 6 innings in 20 of his 33 starts; this year, in just 12 of 31 starts---a pretty slim number for a $20 million man.

Well, you have to factor in all the inflation in the last year.
