Former Philadelphia Phillies First-Rounder Designated by White Sox

The Chicago White Sox have designated Adam Haseley, a former first-round pick of the Philadelphia Phillies. Paul DeJong, an infield addition, is the reason for this change. The White Sox’s only remaining options were to either make this move or include him on the big league Opening Day roster, as there were no minor league options left.

Despite being the eighth pick in the 2017 MLB Draft, Haseley’s early MLB career has fallen short of expectations.

In 2022, the Phillies traded him to Chicago in exchange for McKinley Moore, a minor league pitcher. In three big league games in 2023, Moore recorded an ERA of 18.9 in 3.1 innings of pitching.

Because of his bat, the 27-year-old has had difficulty obtaining regular playing time. Haseley hit.222/.282/.560 in 36 at-bats in 2023. Opportunities have been presented to him, but he hasn’t been able to take advantage of them. That includes playing center field on Opening Day in 2021.

In 2019, he had his best season while playing for Philadelphia. In 222 at-bats, he recorded a slash line of.266/.324/.720. Since then, Adam has not had 222 at-bats.

During the previous season, he played in 72 AAA games, hitting six home runs and only striking out 52.
