Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Moniak was promoted from Lehigh Valley last weekend and appeared in six games during his week-plus in the majors, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. The 23-year-old could rejoin the Phillies within the last two weeks of the season should the team require additional outfield depth.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

He is hitting .244/.305/.435 with 12 home runs and five steals in 92 games at Triple-A. Travis Jankowski (foot contusion) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies optioned Moniak to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

This marks Moniak's third time being optioned since July 21, as he's been one of the replacements for Phillies players on the COVID-19 injured list. He had three pinch-hit at-bats in this latest big-league stint and went hitless with a strikeout. Given his frequent movement, Moniak may find himself back with Philadelphia at some point before the season ends.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Recalled Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley prior to Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

Moniak will join the big-league roster for the third time this season after Rhys Hoskins was placed on the 10-day injured list with a groin strain. He struggled during his previous stints with the Phillies, recording just three hits across 26 at-bats. The 23-year-old figures to serve as a reserve outfielder going forward.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Optioned back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Moniak has spent two separate stints on the big-league roster in the last week, with neither lasting more than two days. He'll return to the minors for now, where the Phillies will hope he can continue the form he showed in his last 15 Triple-A games -- a stretch in which he hit .390 with four homers and 13 total extra-base hits.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Receives call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies recalled Moniak from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Moniak will return to Philadelphia after the big club placed outfielder Travis Jankowski on the COVID-19-related injured list in a corresponding move. Jankowski had been filling a large-side platoon role in center field of late, but Odubel Herrera is a more likely candidate than Moniak to step into the Phillies' everyday lineup versus right-handed pitching while Jankowski is away from the team.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Moniak was called up Tuesday, but he didn't appear in the Phillies' game against the Yankees. He'll now head back to the minors after right-hander Spencer Howard was recalled to provide length out of the bullpen.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Moniak will rejoin the big-league club for the first time since early May. The 23-year-old is unlikely to see much action, as the Phillies have plenty of outfield depth currently on the roster.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Moniak was called up by Philadelphia on Wednesday but failed to record an at-bat during his most recent stint on the major-league roster. He'll return to the minors since Jean Segura (quadriceps) will be reinstated from the injured list Friday.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Recalled by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was recalled by the Phillies on Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Moniak will be added to the major-league roster as part of a shuffle after Roman Quinn (finger) and Matt Joyce (calf) were placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Moniak hit .120 with a home run and three RBI across nine major-league games earlier this season.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies optioned Moniak to their alternate training site Sunday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

The 22-year-old outfielder was up with the big club for just one day while the Phillies stashed Roman Quinn on the COVID-19 injured list for a brief spell. Moniak will likely head to the Phillies' affiliate in Lehigh Valley when the Triple-A season begins Tuesday.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Back with big-league squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was recalled from the Phillies' alternate training site Saturday.

The Phillies want Moniak to be getting regular at-bats this season and intended for him to open the year with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but they've already had to call him up twice. This time, he'll be replacing Roman Quinn, who landed on the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move. Moniak went just 3-for-25 at the plate during his previous stint with the team and looks to be behind Odubel Herrera this time around.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was optioned off the Phillies' active roster Monday.

The Phillies had little reason not to give Moniak a brief audition in center field given the poor performances by the team's other options and the fact that the minor-league season hasn't started yet. He did very little with his opportunity, hitting .120/.214/.240 in nine games while striking out in 42.9 percent of his plate appearances. With the minor leagues starting soon, he'll get the chance to play every day at the Triple-A level, with Odubel Herrera getting the call to try to hold down the starting job in center.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Launches first career homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a strikeout during Wednesday's 6-5 win over San Francisco.

The 22-year-old received the start in center field Wednesday, and he went deep for the first time in his career with a three-run shot off Anthony DeSclafani during the second inning. Moniak is 2-for-18 with 18 strikeouts this season and has started five of the past six games in center field with Adam Haseley (personal) on the restricted list for an undetermined period.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Outpacing Quinn for CF reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak will start in center field and bat seventh Tuesday against the Giants.

Making his third start in as many days against a right-handed pitcher, Moniak has seemingly supplanted Roman Quinn as the Phillies' top option in center field while Adam Haseley (personal) is on the restricted list. Considering that Moniak has gone hitless with eight strikeouts over his first 12 at-bats this season, he may need a strong showing at the plate Tuesday to ensure he sticks atop the depth chart. Quinn (.284 OPS) hasn't done much with his opportunities this season either, so it may not be long before the Phillies call up Odubel Herrera from the alternate site and give him a spin in center field.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Set for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak will bat eighth and play center field Friday against the Cardinals.

With Adam Haseley sidelined indefinitely for personal reasons, Moniak could be set for a run of games in center. Roman Quinn should still see his fair share of action, but a player with a career .650 OPS over parts of five seasons shouldn't be too much of an obstacle for the 2016 first-overall pick. Plenty of shine has fallen off Moniak since his draft day following some mediocre minor-league performances, but he showed signs of life at the Double-A level in 2019, posting a 115 wRC+ while homering 11 times and stealing 15 bases. Expectations should remain modest for the 22-year-old for now, especially compared to what one might expect from most top draft picks, but it's certainly possible he's at least a deep-league contributor if he sees regular starts in center field.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Recalled by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Moniak was sent to minor-league camp in late March, but he'll rejoin the major-league club after Adam Haseley (personal) was placed on the restricted list. Moniak should serve in a depth role in the outfield with Haseley away from the team indefinitely. Moniak appeared in eight major-league games last year and hit .214 with three runs and six strikeouts in 14 at-bats. Roman Quinn should take over in center field while Haseley is sidelined.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak was optioned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Moniak hit the ball well this spring, going 6-for-22 with five extra-base hits, but it won't be enough to earn him an Opening Day roster spot. Adam Haseley's return from a groin injury pushes Moniak further down the depth chart, though none of the names ahead of him (Haseley, Scott Kingery, Roman Quinn and potentially Odubel Herrera) are anything close to stars, so there's a chance that he'll be back up to claim the job at some point this season.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Making case for starts in center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak has done everything he can to stake his claim for the Phillies' starting center field job so far this spring, going 5-for-10 at the plate with four extra-base hits and two homers, Scott Lauber of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The competition for the job thinned out somewhat last week after Adam Haseley was diagnosed with a groin strain that's expected to sideline him for Opening Day. Moniak has a shaky track record at best, though that's true of fellow contestants Roman Quinn, Scott Kingery and Odubel Herrera as well. The Phillies don't want to harm Moniak's development by stashing him on the bench, but with the Triple-A season delayed until May, they could decide that the best place for him to develop is on the big-league roster. If he remains hot throughout spring, it's possible he earns the chance to prove himself in April and gets sent down for his first taste of Triple-A action at the end of the month if he doesn't prove to be ready. Moniak's minor-league numbers don't indicate he'll be a great fantasy option if he does win a job, but he was the first overall pick back in 2016 and is still just 22 years old, so it's far too early to write him off entirely.

Phillies' Mickey Moniak: Part of center field competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moniak went 2-for-2 with two solo home runs Thursday against the Yankees.

Moniak impressed with the bat Thursday, smacking homers in both the sixth and seventh innings. That prompted manager Joe Girardi to suggest that Moniak remains in the mix for the starting center-field job, according to Bob Brookover of The Philadelphia Inquirer. In order to secure regular playing time, Moniak will have to overcome a largely underwhelming professional track record to this point, as he's hit .256/.302/.390 across four seasons in the minors.
