Phillies' Adam Morgan wins for first time since MLB debut


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Phillies starter Adam Morgan earned his first win since his MLB debut on June 21, with a win over Toronto on Tuesday. 

Morgan improved to 2-2, giving up two runs on five hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out two. 


Phillies SP Adam Morgan collapses in fifth and takes defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Phillies rookie southpaw Adam Morgan was playing with fire early in his start Wednesday against Tampa Bay. He eventually got burned.

A quick shower cooled him off. Morgan was banished in the fifth inning after allowing four runs on nine hits with no walks and three strikeouts.

Morgan escaped a bases-loaded jam in the second and stranded two in both the third and fourth. But a hit-by-pitch and doubles by Evan Longoria and Logan Forsythe ended his night after he had thrown 80 pitches.

It marked his second dud in his last three outings and raised his ERA to 4.28. He has allowed 10 runs in his last 14 2/3 innings pitched.


Phillies SP Adam Morgan delivers solid outing vs. Marlins on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) Phillies rookie left-hander Adam Morgan was solid in his start against the Marlins on Friday. Morgan allowed two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings of the 6-3 victory. He walked three and struck out three, but did not factor in the final decision.

Morgan lowered his ERA to 3.91 with the strong outing. He even helped his own cause, as he doubled and scored in the bottom of the sixth inning. That double was his first hit of his young career, which now consists of four big-league starts.

This was a good bounceback effort for the 25-year-old pitcher. He allowed five runs in four innings in his previous start back on July 8. 


Phillies SP Adam Morgan allows five runs in loss to Dodgers


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/9/2015) Phillies starting pitcher Adam Morgan managed to survive just four innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Phillies P Adam Morgan has solid day in loss to Braves


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Morgan surrendered two runs, both of them coming on homers. Other than the two bombs he allowed, Morgan had a solid second start, going seven innings, giving up five hits, walking two batters and striking out five. 

Morgan now has a 2.13 ERA and has struck out 11 batters while walking four combined in both of his starts.

Nationals vs. Phillies rained out, will play doubleheader Sunday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/27/2015) The Nationals matchup against the Phillies was rained out on Saturday before the bottom of the second inning. The team's will play a doubleheader on Sunday.

Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez was able to throw an inning, in which he allowed a hit. Adam Morgan allowed three hits over the two innings he managed to throw.

Phillies starter Kevin Correia will throw in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader. Stephen Strasburg is projected to start for the Nationals.


Phillies' Adam Morgan wins first MLB start


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Phillies pitcher Adam Morgan won his first MLB start on Sunday, with a win over St. Louis. 

Morgan's victory was his first at any level since August 6, 2013 with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. 

"I was more anxious and excited to see how my stuff played," Morgan said, per MLB.com. "Asking these guys some first-time advice about their debuts, and they're like, 'Don't look up.' [Cameron] Rupp did a good job just telling me, 'Just me and you catching.' That's what I did. I didn't look up and played the game of baseball."

Morgan went 5 2/3 innings and gave up one run on six hits. He walked two and struck out six, surrendering one home run.

Morgan was the first Phillies starter to pitch more than five innings and allow fewer than three runs since June 14. He's the first to earn a win since May 23. 

"Morgan really stepped up with the opportunity and was outstanding," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "A lot of composure out there, good stuff, good control, mixed his pitches against a very good offensive lineup. For his debut, to face them and do the job he did, he was terrific."

The team still hasn't announced its starter for the next time the spot comes up in the rotation. 


Phillies pick Adam Morgan to start Sunday vs. Cardinals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2015) The Phillies have tabbed pitcher Adam Morgan to start Sunday's game against the Cardinals, the team announced Friday. He will be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The 2011 third-round pick is 0-6 with a 4.74 ERA in 13 starts for Lehigh Valley. He is 13-28 with a 3.53 ERA in 69 career outings (68 starts) in the minors.

"He's been throwing well," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said, per MLB.com. "I think it will be good to add a left-hander in the mix here, and he's been doing a good job. He's done well. Saw him in the spring with what he had, so I'm anxious to see him."


Phillies' Jesse Biddle among six sent down to minor-league camp


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Phillies left-hander Jesse Biddle was among the six players optioned to minor-league camp on Monday, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. Adam Morgan, Ethan Martin, and Sean O'Sullivan, catcher John Hester and Aaron Altherr were also sent down with Biddle.

Phillies' Adam Morgan returns to mound with win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Phillies pitcher Adam Morgan returned to the mound on Monday with two scoreless innings. 

Morgan, who suffered a shoulder injury in August, 2013 that kept him out all last year, earned the win, allowing two hits in his relief stint.  

""My arm felt great," he told MLB.com's Todd Zolecki. "I've got to start fine-tuning my command. I just have to stay on top and keep on going. I was anxious and excited and a little bit nervous, but I think that being a little bit nervous is good for you."

"He looked like he had a good arm," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He showed some composure out there. Really my first look at him, but I liked what I saw."


Adam Morgan won't need surgery


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2013) Phillies pitching prospect Adam Morgan, 23, will not need surgery on his shoulder after an MRI taken last week did not reveal any changes in his injury, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. 

"That's good news," assistant general manager Benny Looper said.

Morgan is expected to rest in order to recuperate from the lingering shoulder injury. He is expected to begin a throwing program sometime in December.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Adam Morgan's shoulder issue a mystery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2013) The Phillies still aren't quite sure what is wrong with pitching prospect Adam Morgan's ailing left shoulder, and are having him undergo some diagnostic testing to find the source of his issues. Morgan has not pitched in two weeks, since he allowed 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.  

According to MLB.com, Morgan is considered one of the organization's top prospects. He had a 4.97 ERA and career-low 6.3 K/9 prior to being shut down.


Adam Morgan scratched at Triple-A


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

The Phillies have not made it clear how serious the injury is considered.

Adam Morgan having trouble pitching out of 'tough spots'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2013) Phillies starting pitcher prospect Adam Morgan was rocked for 10 runs (three earned) in 3 1/3 innings in his last start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Morgan is having a rough go in the minors, having allowed four or more runs in five straight starts.

His recent struggles are preventing his call-up to the majors.

"The first two innings [Wednesday] he threw very well and the velocity was up on his fastball," Phillies' assistant general manager of player personnel Benny Looper told The Philadelphia Inquirer. "There was a potential double play and they didn't get anybody out and there was a dropped popup and he couldn't fight his way out of the inning."

Despite his recent struggles, the Phillies remain high on Morgan. He entered the season as the Phillies' seventh-best prospect, according to MLB.com.

"He is healthy and fine," Looper said. "He is learning lessons the hard way and we expect him to come back to where he was. He hasn't been pitching professionally that long and one of the things all young pitchers need to do is pitch out of tough spots and try to hold the damage to a minimum."


Adam Morgan's MLB debut on hold


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2013) With the Phillies promoting pitcher Tyler Cloyd from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Roy Halladay's spot in the rotation Friday at Arizona, the other candidate for the position, Adam Morgan, will have to wait to make his major-league debut.

Morgan is hailed as one of the team's top pitching prospects by several publications, but has sputtered recently, allowing four earned runs in each of his past three starts.


Phillies consider options for Friday's start


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2013) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Monday that Adam Morgan and Tyler Cloyd are the top candidates to start Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Philadelphia has an opening in the rotation with Roy Halladay on the disabled list.

Morgan is 1-2 with a 3.89 ERA through six starts at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Cloyd has gone 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA in six starts with the same affiliate.

Adam Morgan could be called on for MLB debut


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2013) With the future of pitcher Roy Halladay (shoulder) looking grim, the Phillies will need to tap into their reserves yet again to fill his spot in the rotation for Friday's game at Arizona. Philadelphia has used six different starters just five weeks into the season and the team overall owns a woeful 4.51 ERA -- the second-worst mark in the National League ahead of only Milwaukee (4.60).

In similar fashion to when John Lannan was sidelined, the replacement will come from within the organization, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The top two candidates include Tyler Cloyd, who was passed over for the previous call-up in favor of Jonathan Pettibone, and prospect Adam Morgan.

Morgan entered the season as the team's fourth-best pitching prospect by MLB.com and has shined with his strikeout potential. The left-hander owns a dynamic fastball along with a slider and changeup, which helped him rank third overall in the minors last season with 169 strikeouts across the Class A and Double-A levels. This year, Morgan has notched a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 26-to-11 over 34 2/3 innings.


Adam Morgan to be in Triple-A rotation


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) The Phillies have announced that pitching prospect Adam Morgan will open the season in the rotation with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, reports MLB.com. Morgan, the No. 5-rated prospect in the organization, according to Baseball America, pitched to a 1.93 ERA over 9 1/3 spring innings. He has been labeled a fast-rising pitcher in the organization. 

Top prospects among Phils' cuts


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2013) The Philadelphia Phillies continued shaping their roster Saturday and reassigned the following players to their minor-league camp: pitchers Jonathan Pettibone, Adam Morgan, Ethan Martin, J.C. Ramirez, Joe Savery and Kyle Simon, catcher Tommy Joseph, third baseman Cody Asche, outfielder Zach Collier and second baseman Michael Martinez.

Morgan viewed as fast riser


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2013) Despite having just six starts at the Double-A level, Phillies pitching prospect Adam Morgan is already drawing rave reviews during the early portion of camp. Morgan, the team's third-round selection in the 2011 MLB Draft, earned an invitation to big-league spring training and participated in an intrasquad game Friday. He worked two scoreless innings and fanned two batters, including slugger Ryan Howard. "He's going to be special," catcher Steven Lerud, who saw Morgan at Double-A last year, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
