Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Adam Haseley left the team Wednesday for personal reasons and there is no timetable for his return, manager Joe Girardi said.

The Phillies placed their former first-round pick on the restricted list and called up former No. 1 pick Mickey Moniak.

Girardi, who said he learned of Haseley’s decision Wednesday, would not divulge the reasons behind the 25-year-old’s sudden absence.

“I spoke with Adam (on the phone). We had a nice talk today and I think we all agreed that this was probably the best and we’ll move forward,” Girardi said. “It’s personal reasons. And we have no timetable. We’re all thinking about Adam.”

Haseley was off to a slow start, hitting just .190 with two runs scored in 21 at-bats. He hit .278 in 40 games last season for the Phils.

Haseley was taken No. 8 overall in the 2017 MLB amateur draft.
