RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Morgan was once a top prospect in the Phillies minor league system before shoulder surgery slowed his momentum and stole some of the velocity from his fastball. He missed all of 2014 and opened last season in the minors. The Phillies gave him a surprising promotion in June despite mediocre numbers at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but Morgan managed to pitch well enough all season to remain in the rotation until getting shut down in mid-September to limit his innings. Morgan's fastball, which once sat in the low-90s, now averages 89 mph. He tries to keep hitters off balance with a slider and changeup as the raw stuff is not there to put hitters away with his fastball alone. He should open the season with a spot in the Phillies' rotation and could stick until younger arms in the system start pushing their way to the majors.

2014

Morgan is expected to be sidelined until August after undergoing shoulder surgery in the offseason. He missed two months of action last season after being diagnosed with a small tear in his rotator cuff. The timing could not have been worse for Morgan as he was considered the most ready of any of the Phillies’ minor league arms at the start of last season. Morgan is unlikely to be a factor until 2015, and that assumes his arm strength comes all the way back after surgery.

2013

Morgan, a third-round pick in 2011 out of the University of Alabama, skipped Low-A ball last season and opened the year with High-A Clearwater. He dominated the competition in the Florida State League and earned a promotion to Double-A Reading in August where he continued to pitch well. Morgan works in the low-90s and complements his fastball with a slider, curveball and change-up. He's not a high-upside prospect, but has the look of a solid mid- or back-of-the-rotation starter.
