Before the Morse trade, he was the guy I wanted the Nats to go for (and the sox to walk away from Napoli). Morales looked very good as a starter until he tired near the end of the year. Going back and forth between the pen and starting did not help him as a starter. He had a good year in relief when he was not starting. Throws pretty hard. He'd would step in as our top lefty in the pen, ahead of Duke, but could start if the worst happens to Gio.
That said, Cafardo is pretty random in throwing poop agains the wall. The diffference between a rumor Cafardo reports, one Heyman reprots, and one that Rosenthal reports is that Rosenthal has worked for the information, Heyman has been fed it by Boras or someone with an agenda, and Cafardo generally just is saying "this makes sense to me" without sourcing it.
