Let’s map out the Braves’ pitching plans without Charlie Morton

Last night’s game was a glass case of emotion for Braves’ fans. Winning Game 1 of the World Series, dominating the best team in the American League for nine innings, and stealing home field advantage was tremendous fun. Losing Charlie Morton to a broken leg sucked.

As the news broke, my first concern was for Charlie and his health next year. The team helped alleviate most of that in their official tweet:

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.
