RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

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.
