Phillies Stat Notes: Milestones Update

Drew Hallowell

Jimmy Rollins is now 3rd in Phillies history in most times reaching base, and is 30 hits behind franchise all-time leader Mike Schmidt.

Just an update on Phillies milestones today, but here's one tidbit in anticipation of Mike Trout's arrival on Tuesday:


Recent milestones and those that may be reached over the next week or so...

Jimmy Rollins -- Phillies Hits Record

On Saturday Rollins became the 9th active player with 2,200 or more hits. He's now only 30 hits behind Schmidt, and nine away from matching Ed Delahanty (Phillies announcers may use the Phillies Media Guide, which shows Delahanty with only 2,207):


These projected dates assume he gets back on the field within the next day or two. At the moment he is projected to pass all three during home stands, but those projected dates will move around depending on how he does in the coming weeks.


Jimmy Rollins -- Other

  • Last Friday against Washington, Rollins became the 6th Phillie in history to walk 700 times.
  • Also in that series, he passed Ed Delahanty for 3rd most times reaching base in Phils history. He is now at 2,942, behind only Richie Ashburn at 3,202 (whom he will likely pass next year if he is still here) and Mike Schmidt, with 3,820.
  • Rollins' next time caught stealing will tie him with Schmidt for 2nd most on the Phillies list at 92. Larry Bowa holds the team record with 94. Caught stealing stats have been kept since 1951.

Chase Utley

  • On Tuesday Utley became the 8th Phillie with 2,500 or more total bases in his career.
  • Two more strikeouts will tie him with Johnny Callison for 8th in team history, with 854.
  • His next double (12th) will tie Del Ennis for 7th most in Phils history, at 310.
  • He needs four RBIs (19 on the year) to tie Pat Burrell for 9th in team history, at 827.
  • Five more runs scored (22 total) will tie Billy Hamilton for 11th on the Phillies list at 874.
  • His next sacrifice fly (2nd this year) will tie Greg Luzinski for 3rd on the Phillies list, leaving him behind only Bobby Abreu (54), and Mike Schmidt (108). Sac Flies were tracked at various times before, but have only been recorded continuously since 1954.

Ryan Howard

  • Howard needs 2 more RBI (20 total) to tie Chuck Klein for 4th most in Phillies history, at 983. While, fangraphs, and all show Klein with 983, the Phillies Media Guide somehow has him at 984, so if you hear Franzke or T-Mac refer to that number, that's why.
  • Seven more total bases (59 this year) will tie Johnny Callison for 11th on the Phillies career list, at 2,426.

Cole Hamels

  • On Sunday against the Mets, Hamels will make his 6th attempt to win his 100th career game. In his five starts since winning #99 last September, Hamels is 0-3, with 2 no decisions, a 6.37 ERA, 8.5 K/9, 2.7 BB/9, 0.9 HR/9, and a 3.52 FIP.

A.J. Burnett

  • Burnett's next win will be the 150th of his career, making him the 5th active pitcher with 150+. Cliff Lee is tied for 6th among active pitchers, with 142.

Jonathan Papelbon

  • With two more saves (11 total), Papelbon will tie Ricky Bottalico for 7th most in Phils history at 78.
