Draft

Phillies draft Adam Haseley with first round pick

The Phillies selected Adam Haseley in the first round, eighth overall, in the 2017 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft.

Haseley, 21, is a junior at the University of Virginia. An outfielder, the Windermere, Florida, native hit .390/.491/.659 with 14 home runs, 16 doubles and a triple over 58 games for the Cavaliers. He also stole 10 bases, struck out 21 times and walked 44 times.

He also pitched for Virginia, going 7-1 with a 3.58 ERA over 65.1 innings in 2017. He struck out 53 and walked 18. It’s likely the Phils will develop him as an outfielder.

Scouting reports peg Haseley as a potential five-tool major league outfielder with better-than-average speed and arm, plus increased power and a solid approach at the plate.
