Adam Morgan: Leaves for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (elbow) elected free agency Friday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Morgan filled a left-handed relief role capably enough from 2017 to 2019, posting a 3.97 ERA over that stretch. He struggled to a 5.54 ERA in 13 frames this season before landing on the injured list with shoulder fatigue and later wound up undergoing elbow surgery shortly after the end of the campaign. He'll likely miss the early part of the 2021 season while he recovers, hurting his already mediocre profile as a free agent.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Outrighted off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (elbow) was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Morgan posted a 5.54 ERA in 13 innings of relief for the Phillies this season before landing on the injured list with shoulder fatigue. After the season, he wound up requiring surgery for an elbow injury. That pair of injuries plus his mediocre 4.84 career ERA mean he won't be a particularly attractive option should he wind up becoming a free agent.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Requires surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a flexor pronator injury in his left elbow, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Morgan missed time in 2020 while dealing with a shoulder injury, and he didn't have stellar results during his 17 appearances. He posted a 5.54 ERA and career-worst 1.54 WHIP over 13 innings as his velocity has continued to decline over the past several years. Recovery from the surgery usually takes between six and eight months, so the right-hander likely won't be ready for Opening Day in 2021. However, Morgan is expected to pitch at some point next season as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Friday.

Morgan wound up missing just over the mandatory 10 days with shoulder fatigue. He'd failed to impress in 7.2 innings prior to the injury, posting a 5.87 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP, though he does own a career-best 31.4 percent strikeout rate. Connor Brogdon was optioned in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan was placed on the 10-day injured list with left shoulder fatigue, retroactive to Aug. 31, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Morgan has been relatively effective recently as he allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings during his last six appearances. However, he'll be sidelined at least 10 days while he deals with a shoulder issue. Right-hander David Phelps was added to the active roster in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Bullpen competitors demoted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan's grasp on a bullpen spot looks more secure after fellow lefties Cole Irvin and Austin Davis were demoted Thursday, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Morgan always appeared to be ahead of that pair, but Thursday's moves confirm that fact. There's still a chance he fails to win a bullpen spot, however, as Francisco Liriano was in camp as a non-roster invitee and could potentially beat him for a job if the team wants to carry just one other lefty in addition to Jose Alvarez.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Moves past elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (elbow) is on track to be ready for the start of the season after reporting to spring training healthy, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Morgan made 40 relief appearances for the Phillies last season before he was shut down in early August with a flexor strain in his left elbow. The 29-year-old didn't require surgery to address the injury and looks to have benefited from an offseason of rest and rehab. After re-upping with Philadelphia on a one-year deal earlier in the winter, Morgan projects to serve as one of the top left-handed options out of the bullpen.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Reaches one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (elbow) and the Phillies avoided arbitration with a one-year, $1.575 million deal Friday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Forearm and flexor injuries limited Morgan to 29.2 innings last season. He was effective enough when healthy, posting a 3.94 ERA.

September 1, 2019 05:08 PM
Phillies' Adam Morgan: Officially done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies transferred Morgan (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Sunday.

The transaction officially spells an end to Morgan's season, confirming what was already widely anticipated. Before getting shut down with the elbow injury, Morgan had been one of the Phillies' better relievers this season, posting a 3.94 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 29.2 innings.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Not expected back this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (elbow) is unlikely to pitch again this season, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Surgery was ruled out after Morgan went down with a left flexor strain earlier this month, but apparently he did not show enough progress during his follow-up exam to gain clearance to resume throwing. Look for Morgan to be transferred to the 60-day injured list at some point soon to free up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: To be examined Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (left flexor strain) will be re-examined Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

The appointment will provide clarity on a potential timeline for Morgan's return. He is still expected to avoid surgery but is not a lock to return this season.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: To avoid surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (elbow) won't require surgery to repair his left flexor, and he could return before the end of the season, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Morgan landed on the 10-day injured list Friday due to a left flexor strain, but he received relatively good news Monday. He'll be given the green light to resume throwing once he's pain-free for two weeks, per Lauber.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Out with flexor strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan landed on the 10-day injured list with a left flexor strain Friday.

The injury perhaps explains why Morgan allowed three runs while recording just a single out Wednesday against the Giants. The move was made retroactive to Thursday, so Morgan can return as soon as Aug. 11, though it's not yet clear if he's expected to do so. The move clears a spot on the roster for Corey Dickerson, who was acquired from the Pirates in a deadline-day trade.

June 21, 2019 04:28 PM
Phillies' Adam Morgan: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list as expected Friday.

Morgan missed just over three weeks with a strained left forearm. He had recorded an excellent 1.96 ERA in 18.1 innings prior to suffering the injury, though it took a .146 BABIP and a 90.9 percent strand rate to get him there. His 3.93 FIP indicates that he was merely good. Cole Irvin was sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Expected back Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (forearm) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Morgan experienced no issues during his rehab appearance with Double-A Reading on Wednesday, putting the southpaw on track to rejoin the Phillies ahead of Friday's series opener against the Marlins. Prior to landing on the shelf at the end of May with a forearm strain, Morgan compiled a 1.96 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB in 18.1 innings of relief.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Reading on Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Morgan has been out since late May with a strained left forearm. His rehab assignment is expected to be a brief one, as he could be back as soon as Friday if Wednesday's outing goes well.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Expected to return during road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (forearm) could return from the injured list sometime during Philadelphia's upcoming road trip, running from June 14-20, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Morgan was sent to the 10-day injured list May 29 due to a left forearm strain, and although the Phillies have neglected to provide updates on his progress to this point, it appears that he'll be ready to return by mid-June if everything goes according to plan.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: Sent to IL with forearm strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a left forearm strain, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear when Morgan picked up the injury or how long it will keep him sidelined at this point, though forearm injuries often lead to something more serious, so the Phillies figure to handle him with care. Yacksel Rios was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move. While Morgan is on the mend, look for Jose Alvarez to work as the team's primary lefty out of the bullpen.

Phillies' Adam Morgan: ERA remains spotless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan threw a pair of scoreless innings in Monday's loss to the Mets, striking out two while allowing one hit.

Morgan kept the game tied through the ninth and 10th innings, erasing the only runner who reached base on a double play. The lefty has been everything the Phillies could have asked for this season, throwing 7.1 scoreless innings while allowing just three hits and no walks.

January 11, 2019 01:56 PM
Phillies' Adam Morgan: Returns to Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan and the Phillies agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Morgan's 3.83 ERA in 49.1 innings last season was a career best and was backed up by a 3.79 FIP. The Phillies brought in a pair of lefties in Jose Alvarez and James Pazos over the offseason and also added David Robertson, a righty with an established reverse platoon split over his 11-year career, so Morgan faces heavier competition for a bullpen spot than he has in the last few years.
