Philadelphia Phillies Claim Outfielder Off Waivers From the Giants

The Philadelphia Phillies have recently acquired outfielder Cal Stevenson from the San Francisco Giants after claiming him off waivers.

The 26-year-old Stevenson will now join the Phillies' organization and provide valuable outfield depth in the upper minors, starting with the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Stevenson's journey has been a challenging one so far this season. During his time with the Giants, he struggled to find his rhythm at the plate, going hitless in nine at-bats and ending up with a disappointing slash line of .145/.259/.188.

These struggles continued in Triple-A, where he batted just .163 (8-for-49).

Despite these setbacks, the Phillies see potential in Stevenson and have decided to give him an opportunity to develop in their organization.

They believe that with the right guidance and further experience, Stevenson can tap into his abilities and contribute positively to the team's outfield depth.

For his minor-league career, Stevenson holds a .289/.404/.413 triple-slash line, with 23 home runs, 170 RBIs, 72 stolen bases, and 268 runs scored across 365 games played.

With his new team, Stevenson will have the chance to work on his game and refine his skills at the Triple-A level. The Phillies have opted to send him to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, where he can focus on improving his performance and potentially earn his way back to the major leagues.
