It’s Morrow’s second shutout in four starts; he also tossed a three-hitter against the Mets on May 19.
Morrow had the big outing tonight despite just five strikeouts. Morrow finished with some of the best strikeout rates in the majors in 2010 (10.9 K/9 IP) and ’11 (10.2 K/9 IP), but he ended those years with ERAs of 4.49 and 4.72. This year, he has a more modest 7.8 K/9 IP, but it hasn’t stopped him from amassing a fine 2.90 ERA and an exceptional 0.99 WHIP to date.
If the new Morrow is here to stay, the Jays could have an imposing rotation led by he, Ricky Romero and Henderson Alvarez the next few years. They also possess a minor league system stocked with about as many quality arms as any in the league.
