The Phillies have reportedly signed Bonner & Prendergast High graduate Jim Haley to a minor league deal, writes Matthew DeGeorge with the Daily Times.

The 27-year-old had six seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays, after they drafted him in the 19th round of the 2016 draft. In 2022, he was with the Triple-A Durham Bulls, batting .231 with 18 home runs and 47 RBIs in 112 games. 

The deal with the Phillies Saturday brings Haley back to Philadelphia.

Haley got out of Class A for good in his fourth pro season reaching Double-A but was stalled by the COVID-19 cancellation of the 2020 season.

He’s played a total of 544 games in the minors that include 57 home runs. He’s a .263 hitter with 263 RBIs.

He had his most home runs last year.

Haley was drafted as a shortstop after a successful turn at Penn State.  Since then, he’s played all over the infield, with only 29 of his game as shortstop.

Haley is a four-time All-Delco – two in baseball as a shortstop, two in football as a quarterback/defensive back. He is also the 2013 Daily Times Baseball Player of the Year.
