What on earth are the Phillies going to do with Scott Kingery? As it stands, he ranks high among the worst contracts in franchise history and the Phillies will think twice before offering any other prospects a big payday before they’ve debuted.

But there is time to change all that, and hitting coach extraordinaire Kevin Long, who revamped Kyle Schwarber’s swing last winter, has been tasked with a complete makeover of Kingery.

According to The Athletic (subscription required), the Phillies are so invested in Kingery – or rather, invested in their investment – that they “will exhaust every idea in an attempt to fix” him.
