Trending Up: Adam Haseley, LF, Reading
Haseley was called up from Clearwater to Reading on July 10 after slashing .300/.343./.415 in 79 games for the Threshers.
He had five home runs, 39 RBI, 13 doubles and 5 triples in those 79 games. All of that earned the former eighth-overall pick out of Virginia a promotion to Double A.
Since his promotion, Haseley has been off to a hot start in Reading and earned Eastern League Player of the Week honors. It’s only been four games, but he has shown every bit of what made him a first-round pick.
After four games in Reading, Hasely is five for thirteen with a .500 on-base percentage and a .923 slugging percentage. In his second game in Reading, he went 3-4 with two home runs, a double and three RBI.
Haseley is one of the team’s top non-pitching prospects. Don’t rule out losing him in a Machado trade, but I don’t think he’d be part of the package heading to Baltimore.
