EM – Reports: Phillies call Triple-A slugger Darick Hall

Seeking an offensive spark in the absence of Bryce Harper, the Philadelphia Phillies reportedly called Triple-A slugger Darick Hall.

Multiple outlets reported the impending move on Wednesday, the day after Hall threw his 20th homer of the season at Lehigh Valley.

A 26-year-old first baseman, Hall is averaging .269 with 38 extra hits and 67 RBIs in 72 games this season with the IronPigs.

Hall has not appeared in a major league game. He has 118 home runs and 154 doubles in 631 underage games since Philadelphia drafted him in the 14th round in 2016.

Harper, a two-time National League MVP, is scheduled to undergo surgery for a broken left thumb and is expected to return before the end of the season.
