Phillies Sign Former First-Round Pick Outfielder

Joining the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies have signed outfielder Garrett Whitley to a minor league contract.

Whitley, a former first-round pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2015 MLB Draft, has yet to make his major league debut.

Last season, Whitley signed a minor-league deal with the Milwaukee Brewers and went on to slash .220/.355/.385, with 10 home runs, 35 RBIs, 19 stolen bases and 50 runs scored across 291 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A.

The twenty-five-year-old will start the season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate, and will look to finally make his major league debut in the 2023 season.
