No. 7: Outfielder Adam Haseley

The Phillies used their first-round pick on an outfielder for the third straight year this season when they selected Adam Haseley from the University of Virginia. He was a two-way player in college, but his future in the pros was definitely as an outfielder.

After a quick pit stop in the GCL, Haseley played 37 games with short-season Williamsport. He racked up 37 hits, 14 walks, 28 strikeouts, and a .730 OPS in that span. The team then promoted him to Lakewood, but he didn’t have as much success with a .258/.315/.379 line in 18 games. The drop off in performance at the end of the season was expected after how much work he put in as a two-way player in college.

Expect Haseley to return to Low-A next season before a midseason promotion to High-A as long as he doesn’t take a complete step backwards or gets hurt.
