Walter on McSweeney
"Morgan is an exciting piece to our bullpen. Along with Supple, he will likely start the year as a set-up guy to bridge the gap to our closer. As the season progresses we could also see him starting or closing. Morgan features excellent stuff and impressive command. As his breaking ball has improved, so have his strikeout numbers."
