Adam Haseley was your selection as the #3 prospect in the Phillies’ organization.
Haseley received 67 of the 207 votes cast (30.88%). The next three positions went to Alec Bohm (51 votes, 23.50%), Spencer Howard (41 votes, 18.89%), and Luis Garcia (39 votes, 17.97%) before a significant drop off to the other twelve vote recipients who received a total of 19 votes.
As expected, Haseley began the 2018 season with the Advanced-A Clearwater Threshers. He posted solid numbers and was promoted to Double-A Reading.
Haseley was remarkably consistent at Clearwater. He got hits in all but 15 of his 79 games there, went hitless in back-to-back games only twice, and after the first time he went on a 13 game hit streak followed by a 14 game streak. He finished his 79 Threshers’ games with a slash of .300/.343/.415/.758, 13 doubles, 5 triples, 5 HR, 7/10 steals, 19 walks, and 54 strike outs in 354 plate appearances.
Haseley went on to Reading and hit the ground running (although Mythbusters proved you can’t actually do that) In 39 games, he slashed .316/.403/.478/.880 with 4 doubles, 6 HR, 16 walks, and 19 strike outs in 159 plate appearances.
Adam Haseley was the Phillies’ first round selection in the 2017 Amateur Draft (#8 overall) out of the University of Virginia. He was a member of the USA Under-14 Team in 2010 and a member of the 2014 USA National High School Invitational championship team. He was named to the IBAF All-Star Team as an outfielder and was Team USA’s leading hitter.
At Virginia, Haseley earned Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America honors in 2015. In 2016, he ranked second in the ACC in ERA (1.73) and ninth nationally. He was named Third-Team All-American by Baseball America and NCBWA. In 2017, he was named First-Team All-American (as an outfielder) by ABCA, Baseball America, and D1Baseball; Second-Team All-American (utility) by Collegiate Baseball and Perfect Game; and First-Team All-ACC (OF). He batted .390/.491/.659/1.150 with 14 home runs and 56 RBIs leading his team in batting, hits, home runs, runs, doubles, walks and total bases.
In 2017, Haseley began his professional career by tearing up the GCL .583/.643/.833/1.476 in just 3 games. He posted a reasonable .270/.350/.380/.730 at Williamsport before tapering off at Lakewood. The long season comprising his junior collegiate year and 58 professional games likely took its toll.
Haseley had a combined .284/.357/.405/.761 across 3 minor league levels. He walked 22 times (8.9%) and struck out 44 (17.9%) times in 246 plate appearances. He hit 3 HR, 28 RBI, and stole 6 bases in 11 attempts.
I would not be surprised if Haseley receives a spring invite to major league camp and is invited to attend the prospects seminar in Philadelphia this month. He could start the season in Lehigh Valley, but if outside events go the Phillies way, a return to Reading is likely.
