Outfielder Adam Haseley has rejoined the Phillies after a month-long leave of absence, Matt Breen of the Philadelphia Inquirer was among those to report.
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.
Really glad to see him back. I hope whatever pushed him to step away from the team is resolved.
hopefully he managed to get things sorted out. he looked distracted previously.
Hopefully Haseley makes it back and they drop Herrera so I can take them off my “cancelled” list.
It took me over two weeks to figure out how to cancel everything to do with the Phillies after they brought back Odubel Herrera, and it’ll probably take me at least that long to look up how to uncancel them online.
I don’t even remember what Herrera did exactly and why I was supposed to cancel the Phillies, but I did! So I get all the cancel culture points for this one.
You must be a blast at parties. Or does the tin foil hat take all the attention?
Anyway, back to baseball, what this site used to be about, glad he is back. I hope everything got sorted out for him.
Maybe your life would be easier, if you concentrated on living it? …instead of trying enforce your will on 100s of 1000s of others? i.e – Phillies team and their fans. That has to be exhausting, take a break… you deserve a Snickers
its not like the dude said something questionable on Twitter or something. domestic assault goes well beyond the “canceled” level.
Well said Darkside.
Are you going to use this same “joke” on every article about Odubel? Because you ain’t getting any laughs
People deserve a second chance in life. He f*cked up bad but seems to be a better person and to have learned from it. Him and his girlfriend are also still together and in counseling together.
Cancel culture exists for ‘perfect’ people hiding behind their phones and keyboards. People who would no doubt be canceled themselves if their own indiscretions were broadcast to the world. Do yourself a favor and drop the fifth grade mantra and learn to forgive. To err is human after all.

Well said Dr Bucket
Cool. Cancel culture? Awesome human being just demonstrating how awesome Ben Grigsby really is….
Ben Grigsby you define jackassery.
Herrera is batting 290 now go back in your rat hole
Good to have him back. Herrera has been performing well as of late, but the Phillies need depth.
Haseley is certainly the best of 5 or 6 less than average alternatives. Crazy that none of even remotely laid claim to a wide open position. Haseley, Quinn, Odubel, Kingery.
Happy Haselley is back to perhaps help this team in June.
Herrera is sort of on fire right now to be fair; including a huge game tying homer off the Nats closer. It’s Herrera’s job to lose at this point.
Quinn and Herrera have been the best in CF defensively. I would still want to have Haseley on the roster over Joyce though, so I can see Joyce being DFA’d soon.
“Haseley, now 25, was the eighth overall pick of the Phillies in the 2017 draft.”
This implies that he was the eighth pick that the Phillies made that year. It would be more clear if it said something like “chosen by the Phillies eighth overall…”
Pretty clear he was the number 8 pick in that draft in the first round. Have you smoked too much funny weed today?

Well-er- The wording could have been better but almost everyone knew what was meant,except perhaps you.
Goofy is playing well. Certainly he’s playing better than anyone else in center. I happen to think his defense is better than Roman’s. But I think Roman has the better arm.
I miss him being goofy. He seems so serious now.
As for Haseley, I wish him well. I do agree with an earlier poster that he might be better than Joyce.
