Adam Haseley, OF, Reading

Since being promoted to Reading on July 10th, the Phillies number four prospect has been on fire. In 29 games, he is hitting .330 with a .410 OBP and three home runs. That on-base percentage is supported by having only three more strikeouts than walks, showing his advanced patience at the plate developed at the University of Virginia.

Between Clearwater and Reading, Haseley is hitting .306 and has eight home runs and 49 RBI. He hasn’t fully developed in the power department, but he most likely won’t be a huge power threat. What he will be able to do is set the table towards the top of the lineup.

He’ll get on base and score runs. He won’t steal thirty bases, but he can be a threat to swipe a bag with seven steals this year and 13 in 166 minor league games. Defensively he’s been strong with only five errors and six outfield assists this year, while adding two double plays.

He probably won’t be a candidate for a September call-up, but he is one of the best players in the Phillies’ system. The 40-man roster rules will likely keep him off the major league roster for at least another year as he moves through the system.

Within a couple years, he’ll be a contributor to the Phillies. For now, he has to work his way up to Lehigh Valley and stay as consistent as he’s been this year.
