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. 


Adam Morgan has rotator cuff tear


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2013) Phillies pitching prospect Adam Morgan has been diagnosed with a small tear in his left rotator cuff. He is scheduled to receive a PRP or a cortisone injection next week, according to the team's official website.

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
(5/20/2013) Phillies pitching prospect Adam Morgan is suffering from a shoulder issue and was scratched from his start Tuesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, MLB.com reports.

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.
