Phillies prospect Adam Morgan (shoulder) has been cleared to pitch in the Arizona Fall League.
Morgan underwent surgery last January to repair a tear in his left rotator cuff and wound up missing the entire 2014 season, but he's been making appearances in instructional league games over the past couple of weeks and should be 100 percent in Phillies camp next spring. The 24-year-old southpaw owns a 3.25 ERA and 269 strikeouts in 290 2/3 career minor league innings. Oct 2 - 9:51 AM

Phillies top prospect Adam Morgan (shoulder) will be sidelined until at least August after undergoing surgery to repair a small tear in his rotator cuff.

The 23-year-old and third round selection from the 2011 draft sustained the injury in late-May, and missed the remainder of the season. The initial diagnosis was that Morgan wouldn't require surgery, and the injury would heal simply with rest and rehab, but after resuming his throwing program this offseason it was still bothersome. For fantasy purposes, it looks as though 2014 will be another lost season for the talented southpaw.

Phillies prospect left-hander Adam Morgan (shoulder) will not require surgery.

Good news for the Phillies. Morgan was limited to 18 starts this season between rookie ball and Triple-A Lehigh Valley due to a small tear in his rotator cuff. However, doctors believe that the injury will heal with rest. The 23-year-old is expected to resume a throwing program in December.

Adam Morgan has a small tear in his rotator cuff that will sideline him for at least three weeks.

Morgan will not throw for three weeks, with the team deciding between giving him a platelet-rich plasma injection or cortisone injection in the next week. It's a tough break for the 23-year-old, as he is considered one of the Phillies' top prospects. The left-hander is 1-4 with a 4.97 ERA through eight starts at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this year.

Phillies pitching prospect Adam Morgan was scratched from Tuesday's start with Triple-A Lehigh Valley due to a shoulder issue.

It's not clear at this point how serious the ailment is. Morgan was recently under consideration for a call-up, but obviously that's not going to happen anytime soon now.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Adam Morgan and Tyler Cloyd are the top candidates to make a start Friday in place of Roy Halladay (shoulder).

Amaro is also considering help outside the organization, but the Phillies will look internally initially. Cloyd pitched pretty decently in six starts for the Phils last season, but Morgan has more upside. The left-hander holds a 3.89 ERA with 26 strikeouts over 34 2/3 Triple-A innings this season.
