Fall instructional league got underway over the weekend. Instructs, as it's commonly referred to, is a month-long off-season league, generally consisting of recently drafted players and foreign signees, players that missed time due to injury, or those that participated in short-season leagues, allowing those individuals to refine their skills or add innings/at bats to their season. It also serves as an opportunity for a greater number of developmental coaches to see newly signed players and those they've not been exposed to in action.
Here's the Phillies' complete roster of players listed in attendance is listed below.

The Phillies also expect to have lefty Adam Morgan see some action on the mound. The Phils' 3rd round draft choice from 2011 has been out of action since last winter after undergoing shoulder surgery. The 24-year-old sports a 13-22 record with a 3.25 ERA and an 8.33 K/9 mark in 56 professional games.
