Alec Bohm is a Phillie. The Phillies promoted their top position player prospect prior to Thursday's series finale against the Orioles.

In a corresponding move, Adam Haseley was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left wrist sprain.

Bohm had not been on the 40-man roster. To make room for him, right-handed reliever Edgar Garcia was designated for assignment.

Bohm, a corner infielder, hit .305/.378/.518 with 21 home runs and 80 RBIs in 540 plate appearances last season at Lakewood (A), Clearwater (High A) and Reading (Double A). He did not spend any time at Triple A.

The Phillies' corner infielders have struggled early. First baseman Rhys Hoskins has hit .190 with one RBI and third baseman Jean Segura has hit .205. Both were involved in a costly misplay in the ninth inning Tuesday. Second baseman Scott Kingery is also off to a slow start at 4 for 40. He had been sick with COVID earlier in the summer and appears to still be building strength.
