1B,3B - PHI
The Phillies recalled 3B Alec Bohm from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
The 25-year-old has struggled in the majors this year, but the Phillies are looking for a spark down the stretch. Bohm is unlikely to be a popular draft target entering 2022, given this year's struggles.
Phillies' corner infielder Alec Bohm has been optioned to the Phillies' Triple-A site at Lehigh Valley.
After finishing second in the 2020 NL Rookie of the Year voting, Bohm has struggled on both sides of the ball this season, slashing just .245/.302/.342 to go along with a .936 fielding percentage at third base.
