Haseley (personal) was reinstated from the restricted list and optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.
Haseley appeared in nine games for the Phillies at the start of the year before spending a month away from the team for personal reasons. He returned to the team to build back up in mid-May and has been participating in rehab games at the Triple-A level, but he'll remain there for now as a regular member of Lehigh Valley's roster until the Phillies next need another outfielder.
Haseley (personal) will report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday to begin a rehab assignment, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Haseley has been on the restricted list since April 14, but he rejoined the Phillies for workouts about three weeks ago. After taking some time to ramp back up, Haseley is now ready to get some competitive at-bats in the minors in what should be the final step he needs to clear before returning to the active roster. Odubel Herrera has since taken over as the Phillies' everyday center fielder, and on the heels of back-to-back three-hit games, he appears to have built up some security in that role. Even if Herrera is entrenched in center, Haseley could still factor into the mix for regular at-bats in right field once activated if Bryce Harper (forearm) is still on the injured list.
Haseley returned to the Phillies on Friday after taking a month off for personal reasons but remains on the restricted list for now, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Haseley went just 4-for-21 at the plate in nine games before taking a month-long leave of absence. He's expected to work out at the team's spring training facility before heading to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to get back into game shape. Exactly when he'll be ready to return to the active roster remains to be seen. Whether or not he'll have a starting role at that point likely depends on Odubel Herrera, who has five hits in his last three games but still owns a .683 OPS on the season.
Haseley was placed on the restricted list for personal reasons Wednesday.
Haseley started in Tuesday's nightcap against the Mets, but he's now away from the team for an undetermined amount of time. Mickey Moniak was recalled by the Phillies in a corresponding move and should serve as outfield depth, while Roman Quinn should take over as the primary center fielder in Haseley's absence.
Haseley is not in the lineup for the afternoon portion of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.
The Phillies will likely give several of their regulars a rest in one of the two contests. Roman Quinn is starting in center field for the first game of the day, but Haseley will likely return to the lineup for the evening game.
Haseley isn't starting Monday against the Mets.
Haseley will be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game after he went hitless with a strikeout in his last eight at-bats. Roman Quinn will start in center field in his absence, batting eighth.
Haseley is not in the lineup Sunday against the Braves.
Haseley started the past three games but will head to the bench after going 0-for-8 during that stretch. Roman Quinn will start in center field Sunday for the Phillies.
Haseley is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Haseley returned from a hamstring injury to start in both of the Phillies' past two games, going 1-for-5 between the contests. He's still expected to serve as the Phillies' regular center fielder, but manager Joe Girardi may just have wanted to give Haseley a maintenance day in light of his recent injury. Roman Quinn will check into the lineup in place of Haseley, batting eighth.
Haseley (hamstring) will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against Atlanta.
Haseley ended up missing just one game with what was apparently a minor left hamstring injury. He's expected to serve as the Phillies' everyday option in center field to begin the season, but he'll likely need to perform well at the plate to avoid ceding his starting role to Roman Quinn or Odubel Herrera.
Haseley (hamstring) is expected to return to the lineup Sunday against Atlanta, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
This is excellent news, as it sounds like he is just dealing with tightness in his hamstring and not a serious strain. Roman Quinn is starting in center field and batting eighth Saturday.
Haseley (hamstring) is not in Saturday's lineup against Atlanta, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
He exited Thursday's game with left hamstring tightness, and it's not yet clear if he will need a stint on the injured list. Roman Quinn will start in center field and bat eighth.
Haseley exited Thursday's game against the Braves with left hamstring tightness, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Haseley started in center field and played the majority of the game, but he was ultimately replaced by Roman Quinn. He's considered day-to-day, and Quinn figures to benefit if Haseley is forced to miss any additional game action.
Haseley will start in center field and bat eighth Thursday against Atlanta, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Haseley is locked in as at least a strong-side platoon player in center field for the Phillies after Odubel Herrera was left off the Opening Day roster. If Thursday's lineup is any indication, the Phillies may be looking at the lefty-hitting Haseley as a full-time player, as he'll be drawing a start against Atlanta southpaw Max Fried. The switch-hitting Roman Quinn looms as an alternative to enter the lineup against southpaws if Haseley proves unable to find much success against same-handed pitching.
Haseley will be on the Phillies' Opening Day roster, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
It looked at one point like Haseley's groin strain would send him to the injured list, but he returned ahead of schedule and has been getting game action for nearly a week. He and Roman Quinn should split starts in center in an arrangement that's yet to be announced, with Mickey Moniak, Odubel Herrera and Scott Kingery opening the season in the minors.
Haseley (groin) will start in center field and will bat leadoff in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.
After being held out of spring games since March 4 with a left groin strain, Haseley returned to action Tuesday in a reserve capacity, recording a base hit across two at-bats while playing both left and center field in the Phillies' 9-3 loss to the Blue Jays. He apparently experienced no setbacks coming out of the contest, so he'll take back a spot in the starting nine Wednesday. Despite the missed time, Haseley looks like he's on pace to avoid a trip to the injured list to begin the season.
Haseley (groin) could appear off the bench Tuesday and will start in center field Wednesday against Detroit, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Haseley was expected to miss four-to-six weeks with a moderate groin strain he suffered in the first week of March, but he'll wind up returning to the field in less than three. The battle to be the Phillies' starting center fielder remains something of a mess, but Haseley could have a chance to carve out a significant role if he looks healthy upon his return.
Haseley (groin) could get into a game within the next few days, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
It's been less than three weeks since Hasely was diagnosed with a moderate right groin strain, an injury which was expected to keep him out for four weeks. While he's seemingly ahead of schedule, there's still no guarantee he avoids a trip to the injured list to start the year given his lost buildup time. There's also no guarantee he finds himself at the front of a crowded pack of mediocre options in center field for the Phillies, though he's at least apparently back in the mix.
Haseley (groin) received multiple at-bats in a simulated game Friday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old was ruled out for four weeks after being diagnosed with a moderate groin strain in early March, and he appears to be progressing well halfway through that initial timeline. Haseley's status for Opening Day remains up in the air, but he could be available if he's able to participate in Grapefruit League games down the stretch in camp.
Haseley was diagnosed with a moderate groin strain Friday and will miss four weeks, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Haseley entered camp locked into a tight battle with Roman Quinn, Scott Kingery, Mickey Moniak and Odubel Herrera for playing time in center field. The injury takes him out of the running for Opening Day, potentially boosting the chances of left-handed hitters Moniak and Herrera in particular should the team wind up using a platoon. A four-week timeline for Haseley would see him ready to return the day after Opening Day, but given that the injury will wind up costing him most of his spring, he'll still need time to build up to regular-season form. He could still spend most of the year on the active roster, but the injury creates the risk that someone else will have established themselves as a regular before he's ready to play.
Haseley isn't starting Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.
Haseley will hit the bench for a fourth consecutive game after slashing .269/.361/.327 in September. Roman Quinn will serve as the center fielder in his absence.
