With Nola coming, Nick Pivetta down, Adam Morgan up

With Aaron Nola on his way to the Phillies, the team sent pitcher Nick Pivetta back down to Lehigh Valley.

But the team wanted a live arm for the weekend series against Pittsburgh, so the team has recalled Adam Morgan to the majors.

Morgan has a 6.08 ERA with eight strikeouts and five walks over 13.1 innings for the IronPigs.

Why Morgan, you ask? Because, as I wrote just one week ago, the Phils really don’t have any other choice (unless they remove Morgan from the 40-man, which, I mean, why not?).

Anyway, Morgan is here. And unless the Phils are down by a dozen runs before the fourth inning of one of these games (can’t count that out), he’d better not reach the mound in Pittsburgh. Looking at you, Pete Mackanin.
