Roster Moves: Phillies reinstate Darick Hall, option him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley
The Philadelphia Phillies have recalled Darick Hall from his rehab assignment in Lehigh Valley.
Hall has been reinstated from the 60-Day injured list (right thumb sprain) and optioned to Lehigh Valley. To make room of the 40-man roster, Dalton Guthrie has been designated for assignment.
Darick Hall Reinstated from 60-Day IL
This is the first time Hall will be back on the Phillies’ 40-man roster since he suffered a torn ligament in his right thumb in early April. He went 13-for-51 with six extra-base hits, including two home runs, and 10 RBI over 13 games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley during his rehab assignment.
With Bryce Harper holding down the designated hitter spot in the Phillies’ lineup, it’s likely that Hall will return to the majors and work himself into a platoon situation with Kody Clemens at first base.
Clemens, who has been somewhat of a surprise for the Phillies this season has played well this season, batting .248 with four home runs, 12 RBI, and a .704 OPS in 117 at-bats.
The Philadelphia Phillies swept the Oakland Athletics over the weekend, closing out a very successful 6-1 road trip out west.
The Phillies are now 13-4 in June. They have won six straight games and are 8-2 over their last 10 and 13-2 over their last 15 games.
They have 10 games remaining this month, with the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets coming to town for the next six before closing out June with three against the Chicago Cubs on the road and then returning home to open up a series against the Washington Nationals on June 30th.
