Adam Morgan

Many wrote off the former top pitching prospect after shoulder surgery and failure as a starter riddled a young career. Adam Morgan has taken his failures in stride and developed into a potential premier left-handed reliever out of the bullpen, something every championship team needs.

Since August 1, Morgan has a .90 ERA with 27 strikeouts to only four walks with one extra-base hit allowed.

It’s an incredible turnaround for a forgotten prospect that is now working his way towards being a reliable piece in the bullpen. Whether he’s needed for one batter or an inning, the Phillies should be able to trust Morgan going into 2018 in a murky bullpen.
