Phillies Agree to Terms With 1st-round Pick Adam Haseley

The Phillies on Wednesday agreed to terms with first-round pick Adam Haseley.

The Phils have now reached agreements with seven of their top 10 draft picks.

Haseley was selected eighth overall out of the University of Virginia. He hit .390 this past season with twice as many walks as strikeouts, and drew similar comparisons to last year's first-round outfielder, Mickey Moniak. Haseley could begin his pro career at Williamsport, the Phillies' Class A short-season affiliate.

They want both Haseley and Moniak to be able to play center field every day so it makes sense to split them up. Moniak is currently at Class A Lakewood.
