Originally selected by the Detroit Tigers in the third round of the 2018 MLB Draft, Clemens was acquired by the Phillies with left-hander Gregory Soto for infielder Nick Maton, catcher Donny Sands and outfielder Matt Vierling on January 7, 2023. He is the son of former major league pitcher Roger Clemens.
Hall, 27, was slashing .222/.263/.278 in six games (five starts) for the Phillies this season. Last year, Hall was the recipient of the Paul Owens Award, presented annually to the organization’s top minor league player. In 41 games for the Phillies in 2022, Hall hit nine home runs and posted a .522 slugging percentage in 142 plate appearances.
He was originally selected by the Phillies in the 14th round of the 2016 MLB Draft.
