The Phillies and White Sox agreed to a trade this Tuesday involving outfielder Adam Haseley.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Phillies are sending Haseley to the White Sox. At this time, it's unknown what Philadelphia received in return for the former eighth overall pick.

Haseley, 25, finished the 2021 season with a .190 batting average. In three MLB seasons, he's a .264 hitter with five homers and 39 RBI.

The best season of Haseley's young career came in 2019. He finished that year with 59 hits in 222 at-bats.

Although this trade won't shake up the landscape of the MLB, it gives the White Sox a lefty bat to place in the middle or bottom of the lineup.

As for Haseley's abilities in the outfield, he's been very reliable at all three positions.

Perhaps we'll see Haseley reach his full potential in the Windy City.
