Phillies Hitters vs. Projections

Projects_medium

Ben Revere
It's great to see a lot of green in those far right columns, but Ben Revere has cooled off again. By month:

April: .200/.234/.222 (.456 OPS)
May: .312/.361/.351 (.712 OPS)
June: .190/.261/.238 (.499 OPS)

Ahh the good old days, when .712 OPS was the down month for the Phillies centerfielder.

Michael Young
Young, meanwhile is hitting essentially the same overall as in 2012, although his mix of on-base and power has changed. He is however playing half his games in a much less hitter-friendly park this year, so his park-adjusted wRC+, while below average, is still respectable:

2012: .277/.312/.370 (.682 OPS), .297 wOBA, 78 wRC+
2013: .257/.341/.348 (.689 OPS), .304 wOBA, 92 wRC+

Phillies Team Stats vs. 2012 and vs. the Brewers

Hitting

Thanks mostly to Dom Brown, they are now 4th in both home runs per game and Isolated Power, which have helped push slugging percentage to 6th best.

In addition, both their pitches per plate appearance (3.80 vs. NL avg of 3.81), and walk rate (7.4% vs. 7.7%) have increased to about the league average.

However to simply equal the 4.22 runs per game they averaged last year, the Phillies would need to score 4.53 per game the rest of the way. Only four teams have scored that much in the first 60 or so games: Colorado (4.87), St. Louis (4.80), Cincinnati (4.65), and Atlanta (4.53).

NL Standings and Team Stats

Not only are the Phils and Nationals only a half game apart in the standings, they also have very similar run differentials and pythagorean records, and have won about 4 games more than the pythagorean formula would predict:

Milestones

Milestones likely to be reached over the next week or so...

Jimmy Rollins
- Rollins' next RBI (21st this year) will tie Bobby Abreu for 9th most in Phils history, with 814.
- Two more stolen bases (8 total) will tie him with Ed Delahanty for 2nd on the Phillies all-time list, at 411. The 19th century's Billy Hamilton, who holds the Phillies record with 508, will probably not be caught.
- He also needs 3 more home runs to reach 200 for his career, becoming the 10th Phillie to do so. That will make Rollins just the 9th player (and only shortstop) in MLB history to have 2,000 hits, 400 stolen bases, and 200 home runs.

Chase Utley
- Utley's next HBP will tie him with Hall of Fame outfielder Fred Clarke for 20th place all-time, at 153.

Ryan Howard
- Yesterday's triple was the 540th extra base hit of his career, and moved him past Sherry Magee (1904-14) for 7th most in Phils history.
- His next Sac Fly (5th this year) will tie Von Hayes, Bob Boone, and Mike Lieberthal for 7th most.
- He needs 8 RBIs to tie Sam Thompson (1889-98) for 5th most in team history at 957. Ahead of him will still be Klein (983), Ennis (1,124), Delahanty (1,286), and Schmidt (1,595).

Michael Young
- Young needs 5 more RBIs (16 total) to reach 1,000.

Cole Hamels
- His next win (3rd this year) will him with Kid Carsey (1892-97) for 11th on the Phils' all-time list, at 94.
- The one after that (4th) will tie Tully Sparks (1897, 1903-10) for 10th.
- Two more starts (15 this year) will tie Curt Schilling for 6th most in Phillies history with 226.
- He needs 25 strikeouts (102 total) to tie Grover Cleveland Alexander (1911-17, 1930) for 5th on the Phillies list.
