Phillies | Tyson Gillies playing in AFL
Philadelphia Phillies OF Tyson Gillies is playing in the Arizona Fall League this offseason after dealing with hamstring and foot injuries in the last two seasons. He is hitting just .205 (8-for-39) with two doubles, one home run and four RBIs in 13 games to this point. "His speed, his outfield play are good," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "It's just good for him to be playing. The fact that he looks healthy right now and he's running real well, that's certainly a plus. Certainly, this is a very big year for him coming up." The team thinks he can eventually be an everyday starter in center field.
