MLB.com reports that Morrow and the Jays will announce a new long-term deal Tuesday. The contract is rumored to be for three years and $20 million, the site notes. It is said to have a club option for 2015 worth $10 million.
That would set the top end of the Jays' rotation of Ricky Romero and Morrow to be around Toronto for four more seasons.
Last season was only Morrow's second as solely a starter and he went 11-11 with a 4.72 ERA. However, in his final 21 innings of the season, the 27-year-old allowed only three earned runs. He joined the team in 2009 after being traded by the Seattle Mariners for Brandon League.
