The Phillies announced Sunday that Adam Morgan has been shut down for the remainder of the 2015 season.
Morgan missed the entire 2014 season after undergoing shoulder surgery and has already thrown 152 2/3 innings between Triple-A Lehigh Valley and the Phillies this season. He finishes with a 4.48 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 49/17 K/BB ratio over 84 1/3 frames with the big league club. He should have a decent chance of securing a rotation spot next spring. Sep 21 - 1:36 AM

Adam Morgan delivered a nice performance in a losing effort against the Braves on Friday, surrendering only two runs on six hits over six strong frames.

Morgan struck out three on the evening without issuing a free pass. While he pitched well enough to earn his sixth victory, Williams Perez was simply better on the other side of the diamond. He'll look to further improve upon his 4.48 ERA and 1.25 WHIP when he does battle against the Marlins in Miami on Thursday.

Adam Morgan struggled in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits over his five-plus frames.

On the plus side, he did manage to rack up five strikeouts while walking only one on the afternoon. He cruised through four scoreless innings to begin the ballgame, but the Cubs broke through for a pair of runs in the fifth and tacked on another pair while chasing Morgan in the sixth. He'll look to improve upon his 4.60 ERA and 1.26 WHIP into Tuesday's start against the Nationals.
Sep 11 - 8:43 PM

Adam Morgan will start the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Morgan had been scheduled to pitch on Thursday before it was postponed due to rain. Alec Asher will work in the second contest for the Phillies.
Sep 10 - 9:40 PM

Adam Morgan was knocked around in Friday's loss to the Red Sox, surrendering six runs on eight hits over his 6 1/3 innings.

On the plus side, he was able to rack up six strikeouts on the evening while walking only two. Most of the damage against him came on a three-run uprising in the seventh inning, highlighted by a solo blast from Jackie Bradley. He'll look to improve upon his 4.42 ERA and 1.24 WHIP when he does battle against the Braves on Wednesday.
Sep 4 - 10:50 PM

Adam Morgan pitched well enough for the win in Saturday's contest with the Padres, allowing two runs (none earned) on four hits over six innings.

Morgan struck out three without walking a batter. A Cameron Rupp fielding error in the fourth led to two runs, which did not count against the 25-year-old southpaw's 4.03 ERA. In addition to the earned run mark, he's also pitching to a 1.21 WHIP and 35/14 K/BB ratio across 67 innings. He'll take those numbers to Fenway for a dance with the Red Sox in his next scheduled start.
Aug 29 - 10:08 PM

Adam Morgan was hit around in a no-decision, surrendering five runs in 3 2/3 innings as the Phillies were badly beaten by the Mets on Monday.

Morgan gave up four home runs. David Wright hit a moon shot for the Mets' first run in the second inning. Juan Lagares tacked on a solo homer in the third. Wilmer Flores hit a two-run blast in the fourth and Travis d'Arnaud followed up with a solo round-tripper. Morgan, overall, allowed seven hits, walked none, and struck out three. The lefty isn't one to miss bats, so when his command is off, nights like this will happen. He sports a 4.43 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and a 32/14 K/BB ratio over 61 innings. Morgan will look for better results when he hosts the Padres this weekend.
Aug 24 - 11:37 PM

Adam Morgan picked up the win on Wednesday, limiting the Blue Jays to two runs in seven innings.

It was quite an impressive outing for the young lefty, as he shut the Jays out through the first four innings before making a couple of mistakes in the fifth. He served up a solo home run to Edwin Encarnacion and Cliff Pennington added an RBI double later in the frame. Overall, Morgan gave up five hits, walked none, and struck out three against baseball's best offense. He'll bring a 3.92 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and a 29/14 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings into a home start against the Mets next.
Aug 19 - 9:37 PM

Adam Morgan posted a quality start in Friday's loss to the Brewers, allowing three runs on three hits over six innings.

Morgan allowed a long solo home run to Khris Davis in the second, then surrendered two more runs in the third to account for the scoring on his line. He struck out just one and issued no walks on the evening. For the season, the 25-year-old southpaw is pitching to a 4.11 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. He's done a serviceable--if unspectacular--job over his first eight major league starts. Start No. 9 will come at home against the big, bad Blue Jays.
Aug 15 - 1:04 AM

Adam Morgan had an ugly fifth inning in which he allowed all four of his runs in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Morgan allowed a game-tying RBI single to Chris Johnson before Jace Peterson slugged a three-run home run. He had shut out the Braves over the first four frames. Overall, he gave up seven hits and three walks while registering only one strikeout. Morgan stands with a 4.46 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 21/13 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings in his first seven major league starts. He'll start next in San Diego, opposing the Padres.
Aug 2 - 5:27 PM

Adam Morgan won on Tuesday when he held the Blue Jays to two runs in six innings.

It didn't look like it would be a good night for Morgan, as he allowed a solo home run to Devon Travis to lead off the game. But he allowed only a sacrifice fly in the second inning and otherwise kept the Jays off the board. Morgan gave up five hits and a pair of walks while striking out two. Not much of a fantasy performer, he has a 4.05 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 20/10 K/BB ratio over 33 1/3 innings. He'll test his mettle at home against the Braves next.
Jul 28 - 10:00 PM

Adam Morgan struggled in a Wednesday no-decision against the Rays, yielding three runs on nine hits in just 4 1/3 innings.

Morgan allowed consistent contact throughout his time on the mound, loading the bases with one out in the second and putting the first two runners on in each of the next two frames. In a just universe, he probably should have been on the hook for more runs, but as is, his issues only came back to bite him in the fifth inning, when the Rays scored all three of their runs against him. Morgan is the owner of a 4.28 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over five starts. There's little to love on the fantasy front here. He'll head to Toronto to face the Blue Jays in his next start as he attempts to keep his numbers from spiraling further downhill.
Jul 22 - 4:55 PM

Adam Morgan was charged with two runs over 6 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

The final run scored after he was pulled from the game. Morgan held the Marlins to just four hits while walking three and striking out three. He now has a 3.52 ERA and 15/8 K/BB ratio in 23 innings over four starts with the Phillies this season, but there's limited fantasy appeal here.
Jul 17 - 9:40 PM

Adam Morgan gave up five runs in four innings in Wednesday's 5-0 loss versus the Dodgers.

He struck out one, walked one and coughed up six hits. Unfortunately, two of those hits were homers, accounting for all five runs charged against him. Incredibly, all eight runs scored against him in his career have come off homers. Through three starts, Morgan is 1-2 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. We see more runs coming, not all of which will be scored via the long ball.
Jul 9 - 1:10 AM

Adam Morgan pitched well in Friday's loss to the Braves, tossing seven innings of two-run ball in the low-scoring defeat.

Morgan served up solo homers to Jonny Gomes and Juan Uribe to account for the entirety of the damage against him, but it was enough to hand him the loss. He also struck out five and walked two. This was just Morgan's second start of the season. In an interesting twist, all three runs he's allowed over his 12 2/3 innings have come on solo home runs. He'll take on the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.
