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.
Jul 3 - 10:26 PM

Adam Morgan, making his major league debut, gave up only one run in 5 2/3 innings to earn the win on Sunday against the Cardinals.

The Phillies' starting rotation has recently been hampered by injuries, so Morgan got the call despite posting a 4.74 ERA with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He managed to hold the Cardinals to six hits and a pair of walks while striking out six on the afternoon. Morgan may stick around until Chad Billingsley returns, but fantasy owners should ignore him anyway. Morgan is on schedule to face the Nationals in a home start next weekend.
Jun 21 - 4:37 PM

Phillies recalled LHP Adam Morgan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Morgan will make his major league debut on Sunday versus the Cardinals. The 25-year-old holds a 4.74 ERA with just 33 strikeouts over 68 1/3 innings at Lehigh Valley this season and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Jun 21 - 10:52 AM

Phillies pitching prospect Adam Morgan will be called up to make his major league debut on Sunday.

Morgan, 25, used to be a pretty decent prospect for the Phils but fell off the radar after being plagued by shoulder issues the last couple years. He's stayed healthy in 2015 but hasn't posted good numbers at Triple-A Lehigh Valley with a 4.74 ERA and just 33 strikeouts over 68 1/3 innings. Fantasy owners should steer clear.
Jun 19 - 3:06 PM

Adam Morgan notched the win in relief after throwing two scoreless innings as the Phillies edged the Orioles 1-0 on Monday.

The 25-year-old Morgan missed last season after rotator cuff surgery, though he did return to post a 6.61 ERA in 16 1/3 innings in the Arizona Fall League. He's going to need to head to Triple-A to open this year, but as hard up as the Phillies could be for starting pitching, he might get a look at some point. He wouldn't be a very good bet for fantasy purposes.
Mar 9 - 4:04 PM

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.

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.
Fri, May 31, 2013 11:03:00 PM

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.
