One of the Phillies top prospects, Adam Haseley, was a bit of a surprise when he was brought to the big leagues. Unfortunately, he played just two games with the Phillies prior to winding up where a number of other Phillies have landed this season; on the IL.
Haseley sat out Friday night with a sore hip flexor and the team hoped he would be able to miss just a couple of games and then return to the lineup. Unfortunately, Haseley became the 10th player on the Phillies list of walking wounded with what was listed officially as a left groin strain.
The Phillies selected Haseley with their first round pick in the 2017 Draft out of the University of Virginia. The 23-year old moved quickly through the organization and played just six games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season before being brought up to the Phillies. With Double-A Reading this season, Haseley hit at a 7-19-.268/.356/.471 clip after a month of May that saw him hit 5-15-.330/.402/.570 prior to being promoted to Lehigh Valley.
In addition to the 10 players on the IL, the Phillies are also without Odubel Herrera, who was placed on “administrative leave” by Major League Baseball following his arrest on alleged domestic abuse charges in Atlantic City on Memorial Day.
To take Haseley’s spot on the 25-man roster, the Phillies recalled Nick Williams, who has shuttled back-and-forth between Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley over the past month. There was no immediate timetable for Haseley’s return, but because the injury was backdated, he will be eligible to come off the IL on Sunday.
