The Pirates are shutting down pitching prospect Bryan Morris for the time being.

Morris has thrown 103 innings so far this year and has recently shown signs of fatigue. The Pirates have decided to shut him down for a bit and will limit his innings this season to around 130. "Rather than limit his innings each start … we felt it was good to take a couple starts off, tweak his delivery and then get him back out there," GM Neal Huntington said. The former first-round pick boasts a 2.97 ERA on the year but has allowed a combined 14 runs over his last three outings.

The Pirates have suspended prospect Bryan Morris for "unprofessionalism" displayed during his start with Single-A Lynchburg on Thursday.

"Through various comments and actions during his outing the other night, he disrespected the umpires, his manager, his teammates and the organization," director of player development Kyle Stark said. The main piece in the Jason Bay trade, Morris has been a huge disappointment this season, going 2-6 with a 5.91 ERA in 10 starts. The Pirates said that he will remain on the minor league suspended list "indefinitely."
