Braves signed RHP Eduardo Morlan to a minor league contract.
Morlan was one of the game's best relief prospects when he was included in the Matt Garza - Delmon Young trade, but he's been plagued throughout his career by shoulder injuries. The former third-round pick hasn't yet reached Triple-A. He's been assigned to Double-A Mississippi by the Braves. Sun, Jun 5, 2011 04:30:00 PM

Brewers returned Rule 5 pick RHP Eduardo Morlan to the Rays.

Morlan cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Brewers earlier this week and the Rays paid the $25,000 to bring him back into the fold. He'll begin the season at Triple-A Durham.

Brewers designated RHP Eduardo Morlan for assignment.

Unless another team picks him up off waivers, Morlan, a Rule 5 pick, will be offered back to the Rays. The 23-year-old had a 6.43 ERA in seven innings this spring.

Rule 5 pick Eduardo Morlan gave up three runs without retiring a batter to take a loss Monday against the Giants.

Morlan's chances of making the Brewers seemed to get a lot better with Eric Gagne's injury, but he needs to show some consistency. He's allowed five runs, eight hits and three walks in five innings this spring.

Eduardo Morlan started in place of an injured Braden Looper on Saturday and pitched two scoreless innings in the Brewers' 5-3 win over the Angels.

It was the first time since 2006 that Morlan has started a game. The Rule-5 pick is trying to make the Brewers as a middle reliever.

Brewers selected RHP Eduardo Morlan from the Rays with the 16th pick in the Rule 5 draft.

There were four pitchers available in the Rule 5 draft who all qualified as top prospects a year ago: Morlan, Donnie Veal, Chuck Lofgren and Alan Horne. Only the first two were selected. Morlan was one of the game's best relief prospects when he was included in the Delmon Young trade, but his velocity slipped last season and he was limited to 30 appearances in Double-A. If his stuff bounces back, the Brewers could have themselves a long-term setup man or closer. However, the Rays obviously weren't the only ones down on him.

Eduardo Morlan struck out four in two scoreless innings Tuesday for Caguas of the PRWL.

Morlan was a bit of a disappointment in his first year in the Tampa Bay system, but he still has a chance to be a nice setup man or perhaps a closer in the majors. He's pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in Puerto Rico, amassing an 8/1 K/BB ratio in the process.

Reliever Eduardo Morlan was traded from the Twins to the Rays in a six-player deal.

The change from the original deal is Morlan subbing in for Juan Rincon, due to Rincon's unfavorable injury reports. We were pretty neutral on the deal before, but this swings it over to the Rays' side. Healthy or not, Rincon wasn't a great bet to be worth what he was due in arbitration. Morlan, on the other hand, is one of the top five or 10 relief prospects in baseball. The 21-year-old had a 3.10 ERA and a 99/20 K/BB ratio in 69 2/3 innings at Single-A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain last season. Maybe the Twins would have been foolish to let this deal fall apart over a relief prospect, but if the Rays wanted Rincon in the first place, there should have been a better compromise available.

Eduardo Morlan pitched two hitless innings Thursday and has yet to give up a run in 7 1/3 innings in the AFL.

Morlan had a 3.10 ERA and a 99/20 K/BB ratio this year in 69 2/3 innings, most of them coming in the FSL. The Twins could get more aggressive with him next year and perhaps give him his first taste of the majors come June or July. He could be one of their top relievers as soon as 2009.

Eduardo Morlan picked up his ninth save for Single-A Fort Myers by retiring all six batters he faced on Tuesday.

Morlan, a full-time reliever for the first time, has a 2.34 ERA and a 48/6 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings. He's another Twins relief prospect with closer potential.
Wed, Jun 13, 2007 02:21:00 PM

Eduardo Morlan threw seven innings of one-hit ball and struck out nine for low Single-A Beloit on Sunday.

The Twins probably have more quality A-ball pitching prospects than any team in baseball. Morlan, a 2004 third-round pick out of high school, has a 1.25 ERA and a 33/13 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings while splitting time between the rotation and the pen. Most teams would be looking at him as a potential starter, but the Twins could put him in the pen and watch him develop into a setup man.
