The Phillies announced Thursday that right-hander Brady Lail has been assigned outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. That announcement indicates that he went unclaimed on waivers.
As MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki points out (via Twitter), the Phils need to make a 40-man move in order to open a spot for Adam Haseley’s reinstatement from the restricted list by Saturday. Haseley has been on the restricted list since April 14 after stepping away from the team due to undisclosed personal matters. He returned to the organization in mid-May and had a 30-day window to get up to speed in Triple-A.
Lail, 27, was claimed off waivers from the Mariners back on May 23 and has yet to appear in the big leagues. He tossed a scoreless frame in his organizational debut with Lehigh Valley’s IronPigs, but Lail was tagged for five runs his next time out and surrendered another two runs in his third outing with the Phillies’ top affiliate.
Lail has spent the bulk of his career with the Yankees organization but began to bounce around the league in journeyman fashion in 2019. He’s since been with the White Sox and Mariners, in addition to the Phillies. Lail has strong numbers up through the Double-A level in the minors but has been hit hard in Triple-A and in the big leagues. Through 21 MLB frames, he has an even 6.00 ERA and has surrendered seven home runs.

White Sox superstar
ill take it. nice depth.
Brady can join the rest of the bunch of Phillies AAAA pitchers.
Nice win for the Phils. Segura and Herrara are kinda carrying them, which is totally changing their season outlook. I realize fans have a negative view of Herrara, and what he did was horrible, but people change. As far as anyone knows, he’s reflected on and learned from his past transgressions. I’m all for giving him the benefit of the doubt rather than focus on the negative. Whatever the case, he’s getting it done on the field. Another fantastic outing for Wheeler, his third with 10 or more K’s and no walks. We’ll see if this is a turning point for the team.
Herrera’s been a huge lift for this team to be sure.
Yup. Hoskins has gone through tremendous hotstreaks as well. Harper was on an MVP pace before getting nailed in the face. Now he’s struggling mightily, but I do expect another hotstreak soon. I don’t really think their offense is a problem. Hopefully they can go on a run to make this division exciting. No one in the NL East has ever really gone on a big winning streak this year.
The Mets’ schedule for the remainder of June suggests the race might tighten. No days off the next 13 days with two doubleheaders. Then they have a day off, only to have a doubleheader against the Phillies the next day.
Something about the Mets’ schedule to keep in mind for later: In mid-August, they’ll play 13 straight games against the Dodgers (7) and Giants (6). I’m not saying they can’t win a bunch of those games, but they probably want to be in first or real close at the start. When that stretch is over, they’ll have just 32 games remaining.

I am a Phils’ fan and had no idea he was even on the 40-man roster.
Let Haseley play everyday at Lehigh. He needs the ABs and only bring him up later this summer if he is hitting well.
I am a fan also and had no idea he was taking a roster spot. They need pitching help because other than the 2 Zach’s they don’t have anyone who is reliable. NOLA seems to have lost it and the bullpen is a crap shoot.
No brainer here. At least the organization was able to keep him around to see if he realizes his potential.
ghost of dave kingman
Call him up….he’ll fit right in between Neris & Alvarado
Haseley is a quitter we don’t need him anymore unload him for some pitching
Awful take without knowing any context.
He’s good enough to go back to the Yankees this year.
QUITTER bottom line
For his salary I will come to work everyday 7days a week without missing anytime
