Haseley stepped away on April 14 for personal reasons, leading the Phillies to place him on the restricted list. He can remain on that list for up to another 30 days, and in the meantime, Haseley will get back in shape at the Phillies’ facility in Clearwater, Fla. Expectations are that he will go on a minor league rehab assignment when he’s ready.
Haseley, now 25, was the eighth overall pick of the Phillies in the 2017 draft. He has since hit well in the minors, including a line of .294/.337/.471 (116 wRC+) with two home runs during his 78-plate appearance Triple-A debut in 2019. However, that success so far hasn’t carried over to the majors, where Haseley has batted .264/.322/.373 (84 wRC+) with five home runs in 355 PA. He got off to a slow start across 21 PA this season (.190/.190/.238) for a club that hasn’t found a solution in center field. Odubel Herrera, Mickey Moniak and Roman Quinn have joined Haseley in struggling to varying degrees.
