Phillies Reportedly Calling Up Mickey Moniak

Big news here for Phillies fans.

Writes Jim Salisbury at NBC Sports Philadelphia:

“Mickey Moniak is on his way to the big leagues, a source tells NBC Sports Philadelphia. The Phillies are calling up the first overall pick in the 2016 draft.

He will likely replace Kyle Garlick on the active roster. Garlick suffered an oblique injury Tuesday night and exited after his first at-bat. He had an MRI Wednesday, as did Jake Arrieta.”

#1 overall pick, Moniak. He played up in Reading last year and hit .252 with a .741 OPS, knocking in 67 runs and hitting 11 homers. He played mostly in center field. Moniak was added to the 60-play pool back in August, before the trade deadline, which is why they’re able to make this move now. They have very little depth and need reinforcement.
