  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Kingery (shoulder) was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Injuries and underperformance have been the story of Kingery's career ever since he signed an extension prior to his major-league debut back in 2018. He owns a career .229/.280/.387 slash line and has only received 143 MLB plate appearances across the last two seasons. The 27-year-old is due to make $6 million this season but isn't on the 40-man roster and doesn't appear to be part of the team's plans. He's still recovering from shoulder surgery, a procedure he underwent back in July, so he didn't get the chance to make an underdog bid for a roster spot as he's not yet ready for game action.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Invited to major-league camp

    Kingery (shoulder) was invited to the Phillies' major-league spring training Saturday.

    Kingery was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster in June of 2021, and he underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in mid-July. While the team was hopeful that the 27-year-old would be healthy for the start of the spring training, it's not yet clear whether he'll face any limitations to begin camp. If Kingery is fully healthy, he'll compete for an Opening Day roster spot after battling injuries across the last few seasons.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Undergoes season-ending surgery

    The Phillies announced Sunday that Kingery will miss the remainder of the season after recently undergoing surgery to repair a labrum injury in his right shoulder, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. He'll miss the remainder of the season.

    Philadelphia is hopeful that Kingery will be healthy for the start of spring training in 2022. He appeared in 15 games for the Phillies in 2021, recording just one hit and striking out 12 times in 19 at-bats. The 27-year-old hasn't enjoyed a competent MLB season since 2019, when he played 126 games and hit .258 with 19 home runs and 55 RBI.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Outrighted off 40-man roster

    Kingery (concussion) cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Kingery has fallen far from the heights which saw him sign an extension prior to even making his big-league debut back in 2018. He's been an above-average hitter in just one of his four big-league seasons, and he barely fit into that category in that year (2019), posting a 101 wRC+. Over the last two seasons, he's hit a miserable .144/.204/.250 in 143 plate appearances. Given those numbers, it's no surprise that no other team wanted to take on his guaranteed money in hopes that they could fix him. He'll remain with Triple-A Lehigh Valley for now but needs plenty of work at that level before earning his next major-league opportunity.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: In midst of rehab assignment

    Kingery (concussion) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Lehigh Valley on June 1 and has played in five games for the affiliate, going 4-for-19 with 10 strikeouts.

    Kingery has moved past the concussion and has likely regained full conditioning at this point after missing about two weeks with the head injury, but Philadelphia presumably isn't in any rush to activate him. The Phillies are seemingly satisfied with how Brad Miller and Ronald Torreyes have performed as their primary utility infielders, so there might not be room for Kingery on the 26-man active roster once he's formally reinstated.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Out with concussion

    Kingery was placed on the 7-day concussion injured list Tuesday.

    Kingery left Sunday's game against the Blue Jays with dizziness, the cause of which is now clear. He'll be eligible to return Monday, though it's uncertain whether he'll be on the active roster once he's ready to play again. The Phillies wanted him to spend the early portion of the season working on his swing while getting regular at-bats in the minors but have been forced to turn to him as a big-league bench option due to injuries.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Leaves game with dizziness

    Kingery left Sunday's game against the Blue Jays due to dizziness, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Kingery went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays, and he was replaced in right field in the bottom of the sixth inning. It's not yet clear whether the issue will impact Kingery's availability for Tuesday's series opener against Miami.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Back up with big club

    The Phillies recalled Kingery from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

    Kingery and Mickey Moniak will move up from the minors to provide a couple of healthy bodies after Matt Joyce (calf) and Roman Quinn (finger) landed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. The Phillies are likely viewing Kingery as a utility man for the time being, but he could be the next man up for an everyday role if the team loses yet another lineup regular to injury in the near future.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Sent to minors

    Kingery was optioned to the Phillies' alternate training site Monday.

    The Phillies wanted Kingery to get regular at-bats in the minors to sort things out after an awful 2020 season and a poor spring. They were forced to turn to him during a late-April injury crisis but will send him back down now that the minor leagues are about to start. Cristopher Sanchez was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Called up by Phillies

    Kingery was recalled by the Phillies on Wednesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Kingery was unable to secure a spot on Philadelphia's Opening Day roster this year, but he'll join the major-league club after Jean Segura (quadriceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Kingery appeared in 36 games for the Phillies last year and slashed .159/.228/.283 with three home runs and six RBI.

  • Phillies' Scott Kingery: Misses out on Opening Day roster

    The Phillies optioned Kingery to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    Coming off a disastrous 2020 campaign in which he posted a lowly .159/.228/.283 slash line across 124 plate appearances, Kingery was forced to battle for a spot on the Opening Day roster during camp. He didn't fare much better this spring, contributing a .525 OPS while striking out in 19 of his 44 at-bats in Grapefruit League play before Philadelphia demoted him. The Phillies would ideally like to see Kingery regain some confidence at the plate at Triple-A before the team gives him another look with the big club.
