The Los Angeles Dodgers traded Kyle Garlick to the Phillies in exchange for minor league pitcher Tyler Gilbert.
Garlick was among the nine rookies who played for the Dodgers throughout the 2019 season, and he was one of eight to make his MLB debut. The 27-year-old was drafted by the Dodgers in the 28th round in 2015 out of Cal Poly Pomona.
After a strong showing spring training and start to the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City, Garlick earned his first promotion to the majors in the middle of May. After that he bounced to and from L.A. and Oklahoma City, making the most of limited opportunities.
Garlick hit .250/.321/.521 with three home runs, four doubles, eight runs scored and six RBI over 30 games with the Dodgers. He also played in 81 games for OKC, batting an impressive .314/.382/.675 with 23 home runs, 25 doubles, 54 runs scored and 59 RBI.
