Minor League Baseball Transactions

Early October is the time of year that player movement usually begins at the minor league level. With the Arizona Fall League set to begin their season on Tuesday, October 7 we can follow some of the junior Phillies playing this year for the Scottsdale Scorpions. This is a list of who the Phillies will be sending to the AFL:
First, and probably most important to the 2015 Lehigh Valley Ironpigs, LHP Adam Morgan will be continuing his rehab at Scottsdale. Morgan made 13 starts for the Ironpigs in 2013 then missed all of 2014 after having shoulder surgery in January. Other Phillies headed to he AFL include Roman Quinn, 21 year old switch hitting center fielder, Logan Moore, 24 year old catcher who split time in 2014 between Clearwater and Reading, Ethan Stewart, 23 year old LHP was 5-7 at Clearwater last year, Colton Murray, 24 year old RH relief pitcher pitched at Clearwater and Reading last year, Ryan O’Sullivan RHP was 7-8 3.91 with Reading in 2014 and Nefi Ogando a 25 year old RH relief pitcher who was 5-1 6.27 with 7 Saves at Reading last year.

In other Phillies minor league transactions according to Matt Eddy at Baseball America, 3 players have elected free agency, Jeff Manship, Jeremy Horst and Reid Brignac. All 3 would be missed if they sign elsewhere for the 2015 season.

A few other familiar minor league names who have already elected free agency this offseason include Dan Johnson, Corey Brown, Elliot Johnson, Jair Jurrjens, Michael Martinez, Jeff Francoeur and Ryan Feierabend.

The Winter Meetings this year will be December 8-11 in San Diego.
