Phillies Recall Mickey Moniak from AAA, Adam Haseley to Restricted List (Personal Reasons)
The Philadelphia Phillies have recalled Mickey Moniak from Lehigh Valley, and have placed CF Adam Haseley on the restricted list, for personal reasons. This move came Wednesday afternoon, a day after two disappointing losses to the Mets in the first double header of the year.
Mickey Moniak had a great spring for the Phillies. Bringing in a .273 batting average, six hits, two home runs, and an OPS of 1.112, the young prospect finally looked like he was going to make the team to start the year. The team sent him down to Triple A just days before the regular season, hoping to get him some extra at bats and innings in the field, before his time in the big leagues started. It only took 11 games for him to get called up to the big leagues.
Centerfield has been the number one problem for the Phils so far this season. Roman Quinn and Adam Haseley have combined for .091/.212/.091 on the year, an absolute horrific stat line to start the season.
Adam Haseley will be sent away from the team due to personal reasons. I wish Adam all the best in his time gone from the team, as the circumstances of the move are currently unknown
Fans have been pushing for a centerfield change over the past few games with our two options going through a major struggle, and we now have one. Mickey Moniak has been called up, and will definitely be seeing some meaningful minutes in centerfield going forward.
