Phillies roster moves: Darick Hall called up with Triple A season over originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

In search of any offense they can get during a terribly timed team-wide slump, the Phillies called up designated hitter/first baseman Darick Hall from Triple A Lehigh Valley prior to Friday’s doubleheader in Washington.

The IronPigs’ season ended Wednesday so Hall should be a left-handed bat off the bench over the Phillies’ final seven games. He hit .264 with a .550 slugging percentage in 38 major-league games earlier this season. He struck out 40 times with just five walks, but 18 of his 34 hits went for extra bases — eight doubles, a triple and nine home runs in just 135 plate appearances.

Hall received the 2022 Paul Owens Award as the Phillies’ most outstanding minor-league hitter. Top prospect Andrew Painter won the pitching honor. In 443 plate appearances with Lehigh Valley, Hall hit .254/.330/.528 with 28 homers and 88 RBI.

The Phillies optioned utilityman Yairo Muñoz to Triple A to make room.

Separately, left-handed pitcher Cristopher Sanchez was added as the 29th man for Friday’s doubleheader. Bailey Falter and Noah Syndergaard start for the Phillies in that order.
