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

Morgan was just sent down when Aaron Nola returned, but he's back now that Daniel Nava (hamstring) has been placed on the disabled list. The 27-year-old has allowed seven runs over six innings of work with the Phils this season.

Phillies optioned LHP Adam Morgan to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Morgan threw 3 2/3 innings in mop-up duty Tuesday as the Phillies were trounced by the visiting Mets and the left-hander wasn't going to be available for the next few days. Philly will promote a new long-relief man on Wednesday.

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said Saturday that he would consider Adam Morgan and Alec Asher options to pitch out of the bullpen if they don't crack the Opening Day rotation.

Barring injury, the rotation appears to be set with Jeremy Hellickson, Clay Buchholz, Jerad Eickhoff, Vince Velasquez and Aaron Nola, which means that the only options for guys like Morgan and Asher are to pitch out of the pen or in the rotation at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Morgan appeared in 23 games (21 starts) for the Phillies in 2016, registering a 6.04 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 95/29 K/BB ratio across 113 1/3 innings.

Adam Morgan ended his season on a sour note, getting pounded for nine earned runs in five innings of work in a loss to the normally light-hitting Braves on Wednesday.

He made it through the first inning unscathed but the Braves piled it on in the subsequent frames. He gave up 10 hits, walked two and hit one batter. He struck out four. The whipping leaves him with an ugly 2-11 record and 6.04 ERA. His 95/29 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 113 1/3 innings is actually pretty good, so the Phillies will likely give him another chance in the rotation next season despite the nasty ERA this year.

Adam Morgan allowed three runs over five innings Thursday against the Mets.

Morgan gave up a home run among his five hits allowed, and the southpaw tied a season high with eight strikeouts. The results largely haven't been pretty for the southpaw this year, as Morgan now owns a 5.57 ERA in 108 1/3 innings of work. The 26-year-old will look for a good showing in his final start of 2016, scheduled for Wednesday against the Braves.

Adam Morgan gave up two runs (one earned) in 4 1/3 innings Friday against the Marlins.

Morgan held the Marlins off the board for the first four innings, but they finally got to him in the fifth inning. The second run scored after he was pulled from the game. The southpaw gave up seven hits and walked a pair while striking out four. Morgan has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four straight starts, but he still owns an ugly 5.57 ERA. He lines up for a start against the Mets next week on the road.

Adam Morgan took a tough-luck loss against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing two runs on three hits over six-plus innings.

Morgan struck out a mere two and matched that whiff total with a pair of walks. Daniel Murphy burned him for an RBI double in the very first inning to spark the scoring, but the Nationals wouldn't touch home again until the seventh. The 26-year-old southpaw will bring an unwieldy 5.73 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into a home showdown with the Marlins next time he toes the rubber. While those are rough numbers, Morgan has pitched better of late, allowing just five runs over his last 18 2/3 frames (three starts).

Adam Morgan struck out five across six innings of one-run ball in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Marlins.

He yielded just five hits on the night and didn't walk anyone. Morgan probably had more left in the tank with just 85 pitches thrown, but Phillies managed Pete Mackanin elected to pull the left-hander. The southpaw has now put together two straight promising outings and will try to keep it going this weekend in D.C.
Wed, Sep 7, 2016 01:02:00 AM

Adam Morgan gave up just two runs in 6 2/3 innings but took a loss against the Nationals on Wednesday.

He gave up a solo homer to Jayson Werth in the first inning and then strung zeroes until the seventh when he surrendered an RBI single to Wilson Ramos. He allowed only one other hit in the game. Morgan fanned five without issuing a base-on-balls. It was a nice recovery after getting shelled by the Mets on Friday. He has an atrocious 6.21 ERA despite a decent 72/21 K/BB ratio in 87 innings. He has been brutalized by the longball this year, giving up 21 taters in that limited number of innings.

Adam Morgan was knocked around for six runs over five innings Friday in a loss to the Mets.

Morgan gave up back-to-back homers to Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera to begin the ballgame, but things got worse later, as he surrendered a grand slam to Wilmer Flores in the fifth inning to blow things open. The southpaw owns an ugly 6.50 ERA through 15 starts and two relief appearances this season while allowing 20 homers in just 80 1/3 innings. Assuming he sticks in the rotation, he’ll get the Nationals next week.
Fri, Aug 26, 2016 10:28:00 PM

Adam Morgan allowed one run over six-plus innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday.

Morgan allowed five hits and a pair of walks while striking out three batters. The lone run scored on a solo homer off the bat of Randal Grichuk in the second inning. The southpaw might have saved his rotation spot with this outing. As of now, he lines up for a start against the fading Mets next week, though with a 6.21 ERA, he’s not a recommended fantasy option.

Adam Morgan (forearm) will start on Friday against the Cardinals.

Morgan left his last start Sunday against the Rockies after taking a line drive off his forearm, but he'll be fine. He's posted a 6.62 ERA in 69 1/3 innings this season at the major league level and can be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Adam Morgan (forearm) is expected to be ready for his next turn in the Phillies' rotation.

Morgan left his last start Sunday against the Rockies after taking a line drive off his forearm, but he escaped with a bruise. The left-hander holds a 6.62 ERA in 69 1/3 innings this season at the major league level.
