MICKEY MONIAK THE BENEFICIARY OF PHILS HASELEY TRADE

By Sam Bush

The Phillies ran out of time waiting for Adam Haseley to live up to his hype.

And they traded him to the White Sox for a no-hoper minor league pitcher, McKinley Moore

Although Haseley wasn’t slated to start in the outfield for the Phillies, he looked to have a clear path to at least a part-time role — particularly with Odubel Herrera currently battling an oblique injury that’s expected to prevent him from being ready for Opening Day.

Haseley and right-handed-hitting Matt Vierling appeared set for a center field platoon, with Bryce Harper locked into right field and Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos slated to split time between left field and DH (probably with the former seeing more time in the field than the latter).

With Haseley now out of the picture, former No. 1 overall pick Mickey Moniak looks like the frontrunner to split time with Vierling early on — barring further player movement in the Philadelphia outfield mix.
