Phillies call up Mickey Moniak


Mickey Moniak is on his way to the big leagues.

The Phillies called up the first overall pick from the 2016 draft Wednesday, along with reliever Connor Brogdon, as they placed Jake Arrieta (hamstring) and Kyle Garlick (oblique) on the 10-day IL.

Moniak was not on the Phillies' 40-man roster so a corresponding move is coming.

He was added to the Phillies' 60-player pool on August 30, the day before the trade deadline. 

The 22-year-old hit .252 with a .741 OPS, 11 home runs and 67 RBIs at Double A Reading in 2019.
