Phillies' Francisco Morales: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
1 min read
Morales was added to the Phillies' 40-man roster Friday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Morales is a highly-regarded prospect for the Phillies, and he'll now be protected from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The right-hander likely isn't ready to make his major-league debut, but he posted a 3.82 ERA with 129 strikeouts over 96.2 innings with Low-A Lakewood in 2019.
