The Phillies first round pick continues to rise quickly through the organization

Phillies first round pick Adam Haseley has been promoted from Short-Season Williamsport to Single-A Lakewood.

In 37 games for the Crosscutters Haseley collected 37 hits with two home runs and five stolen bases. He’ll join last years number one overall pick Mickey Moniak on a BlueClaws team six games under .500 this season.

Haseley projected to be a fast mover as the eighth overall pick coming out of the University of Virginia. He’s hit .295 in 40 cumulative professional games this year with 13 extra-base hits.

The outfield in Philadelphia will certainly be something to behold if the gluttony of prospects produces and rise to the occasion in the next three years. The organization is clearly very high on Nick Williams, who’s quietly done a very good job in right field since being called up.

Odubel Herrera is the biggest question mark of the bunch after another baserunning blunder Sunday afternoon where he ran to third with Galvis standing on the bag and failed to create a rundown.

Rhys Hoskins won’t be the future in left field and could potentially start at first base on opening day next season. If left field is open the Phillies could look to add a veteran to fill the role, similar to Howie Kendrick, but healthy, as trade bait.

Surely the team would love to see Aaron Altherr or Roman Quinn be in left on opening day, but neither can stay healthy long-term. Altherr is likely to be the top option in left field coming out of spring training.

Next: Roy Halladay a lock for the 2018 Wall of Fame?

It remains to be seen what top prospects Dylan Cozens, Cornelius Randolph, and Carlos Tocci can do at the next level. Cozens doesn’t appear to be anything more than a productive home run bat off the bench in the long-term, and Randolph is just now coming into his own with Clearwater.

Tocci is a wild card in Double-A and could land on the 40-man roster next year. After Cozens Tocci would be the next man up in the major league outfield.
