    Player Outlook

    After struggling as a starter to the tune of a 6.04 ERA in 2016, Adam Morgan moved to the bullpen last season and enjoyed much better results. He rode a strong 10.4 K/9 rate to a 4.12 ERA -- an unremarkable number but one that at least is deserving of a major-league role. Morgan's 3.47 xFIP suggests that his ERA could trend lower in 2018. One out of every five flyballs Morgan allowed left the park last season -- a number which can be expected to regress next season. Morgan will enter 2018 as the Phillies' top lefty in the bullpen barring free-agent additions, and could hold some value in deep leagues by getting a fair number of strikeouts in middle relief. Owners in shallower leagues will have little reason to look at Morgan, though, as he's highly unlikely to sniff the closer role.

    • Phillies' Adam Morgan: Picks up third win Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morgan (3-1) picked up the win Sunday after tossing three scoreless innings in a 3-1 extra-inning victory over the Marlins. Morgan has been pitching very well of late for the Phillies, going 3-0 with a 0.52 ERA and a 23:3 K:BB in 17.1 innings since the beginning of August. A strong finish to the season should make Morgan a near lock for a bullpen spot next season.

    • Phillies' Adam Morgan: Season struggles continue
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morgan has a 5.68 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with 34 strikeouts over 31.2 innings this season. Morgan rarely sees high-leverage work and is used primarily as a long reliever. The 27-year-old has given up nine home runs this season, but six of them came in his first two appearances back in April. Morgan's first stint in the majors this season was a disaster, but he s pitched a bit better since with a 4.56 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across 25.2 innings.

    • Phillies' Adam Morgan: Struggling this season
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morgan is 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA and a 24:7 K:BB in 21.2 innings this season. Morgan has seen his velocity increase and his strikeout rate spike with the move to the pen this season. He's still been quite hittable, however, and his HR/9 has increased by more than a point, leading to his lofty ERA. His roster spot could be in jeopardy in the second half if he doesn't start to show some signs of improvement.

    • Phillies' Adam Morgan: Recalled Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morgan was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday. Morgan was brought up from Lehigh Valley to take the roster spot of Joaquin Benoit (knee), who landed on the disabled list. This will be Morgan's third stint with the big club this year, and he figures to pitch in long relief like he did the previous two times.

    • Phillies' Adam Morgan: Shipped back to minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Morgan was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Wednesday's loss to the Rockies, Ryan Lawrence of PhillyVoice.com reports. Morgan was sent back to Lehigh Valley after tossing three scoreless innings Wednesday, allowing three hits while striking out two.
