Kingery was placed on the 7-day concussion IL in mid-May and hasn't played since. Kingery was outrighted by the Phillies on Monday. He struggled at the plate in 2021, slashing .053/.053/.053 with a run scored across 19 plate appearances. Kingery signed an extension with the Phillies in 2018 but was unable to live up to that contract. The 27-year-old needs some fine-tuning in the minors and will try to turn things around in Triple-A Lehigh Valley before getting another shot in the big leagues.
