Braves add Tucker Davidson to World Series roster with Charlie Morton out after suffering broken leg in Game 1

Asia's Tech News Daily

Wednesday update: The Braves have added left-handed pitcher Tucker Davidson to the World Series roster in place of Morton, who is done for the year with a broken leg he suffered in Game 1. MLB approved the move after a league physician confirmed the injury.

Left-handed pitcher Tucker Davidson has replaced right-handed pitcher Charlie Morton on the @Braves #WorldSeries roster, it was announced today by @MLB.

Update: Morton suffered a broken leg in Game 1, which means he will miss the rest of the series.

RHP Charlie Morton underwent X-rays tonight that revealed a right fibula fracture. He will miss the remainder of the World Series and is expected to be ready for Spring Training in 2022.

It’s an unfortunate blow for Atlanta, who will likely have to fall back on relievers for a few starts with the rotation banged up. As the Braves says, Morton will be ready for spring training next season.

The Atlanta Braves suffered a big blow in Game 1 of the World Series against the Houston Astros with starting pitcher Charlie Morton leaving in the third inning due to an ankle injury.

Charlie Morton is coming out of the game. He is limping off the field. Brutal for Atlanta. He’d been phenomenal through the first three innings.

— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) October 27, 2021

Morton finished with three strikeouts and one hit allowed in 2.1 innings. A.J. Minter appeared in relief of Morton.

The Braves jumped out to an early lead on the Astros when Jorge Soler became the first player in MLB history to lead off the World Series with a home run. The Braves added more runs throughout the next two frames to go up 5-0 after three innings. Unfortunately, Atlanta’s ace Morton wasn’t able to complete what was a strong outing.

It’s unclear whether Morton’s injury will keep him out of the series. He’s unlikely to pitch until at least Game 5 if he is available, so he’ll have plenty of time to rest up. The Braves will hope to steal homefield advantage with a Game 1 victory.
