      Phillies' Scott Kingery: On COVID-19 injured list

      Scott Kingery was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.The Philadelphia Phillies initially didn't specify why Kingery and three other players were placed on the injured list, but it's since been revealed that they were placed on the COVID-19 list, rather than the normal 10-day injured list. That doesn't necessarily mean any of them have tested positive, however, as they can also go on the list if they've been in contact with a person who has been infected with the virus, among other reasons. As players' medical information is being closely protected in this area, it's not known when Kingery is expected to get back on the field.

      Phillies' Scott Kingery: Lands on injured list

      The Philadelphia Phillies placed Scott Kingery on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to an unspecified issue, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.Kingery was one of four Phillies placed on the IL on Wednesday, with no reason provided behind any of the transactions. More clarity on Kingery's situation could be provided the next time manager Joe Girardi meets with the media, but for now, the 26-year-old's status for Opening Day in late July is muddled. After working as a utility man for most of his first two seasons in Philadelphia, Kingery is expected to settle into full-time duty at the keystone in 2020 and had been viewed as a candidate to lead off for the club earlier this spring.

      Phillies' Scott Kingery: Candidate to lead off

      Scott Kingery is a candidate to lead off this season, at least until Andrew McCutchen returns from his knee injury, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.Kingery was mentioned alongside J.T. Realmuto, Adam Haseley and Roman Quinn. Kingery possesses the speed of a traditional leadoff man, though his .315 on-base percentage last season doesn't necessarily fit the mold of a modern table-setter. If he gets the job anyway, expect a boost to his run total and perhaps extra opportunities to steal early in the season.

      Phillies' Scott Kingery: Solves vision issues

      Scott Kingery will wear a contact lens this season to correct the blurry vision that affected him late in 2019, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.Kingery went through a series of tests during the offseason which revealed a minor vision issue in his right eye. The problem isn't bad enough for him to require contacts for everyday activity, but a baseball player trying to hit major-league pitching requires more perfect vision than most of us do in our daily lives. In theory, improved vision could help Kingery achieve a second straight breakout season, but given that the issue was apparently minor and didn't pop up until late in the year, it's probably not wise to adjust his projections too much.

      Phillies' Scott Kingery: Done for season

      Scott Kingery is battling blurry vision and won't play again this season, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.The Philadelphia Phillies aren't certain what's causing the issue but will hope to have a clearer idea after Kingery visits an eye doctor Monday. The 29-year-old will wrap up his sophomore season with a .258/.315/.474 slash line, adding 19 homers and 15 steals. That performance was only good for a roughly league average 101 wRC+, though that nevertheless represents a major improvement from his 61 wRC+ as a rookie. A player who can be a league average hitter while starting at five different positions (including center field and both middle infield spots) should be an important part of the Phillies' core even if he doesn't develop into a star.
