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.
