Phillies Bubble Players: Spring Stats, March 14

As it's now the midway point of Spring Training, it's probably worthwhile to step back and take a look at the stats compiled thus far in the Grapefruit League by the players who are "on the bubble" to make the Phils' Opening Day roster. Also, that nose-picking photo was starting to irritate me and I kind of wanted to get it off the top of the page.

These are still tiny sample sizes, but the sample sizes are going to be small even on March 31. When your choice is between a bunch of otherwise very comparable fringe major leaguers, you've got to base it on something.

Twenty guys (eight starting position players, three reserves, five starting pitchers, four relief pitchers), are locks to make the roster, but if Chase Utley has to start the year on the DL, that means there will be six openings. Three of them will go to position players, two will go to relievers, and one could go either way.

Hitters:

Name AB HR SB/A BB K AVG OBP SLG OPS
Barfield 19 0 1/1 2 4 .474 .524 .684 1.208
Martinez 32 1 0/1 0 7 .250 .250 .375 .625
Mayberry 36 4 3/3 4 4 .324 .390 .730 1.120
Orr 25 0 0/0 0 5 .240 .240 .560 .800
Young 42 1 0/2 2 10 .333 .364 .452 .816

This doesn't include fielding stats, obviously. I know Martinez has made a whole bunch of errors this spring, for whatever that's worth.

Pitchers:


Name G IP H HR BB K ERA
Baez 5 6.1 2 0 2 3 0.00
Bastardo 2 3.0 0 0 2 5 0.00
Herndon 4 4.2 5 0 4 4 5.79
Kendrick 3 9.0 8 3 0 5 5.00
Mathieson 4 5.2 2 0 3 6 3.18
Stutes 5 9.0 3 1 1 9 1.00
Worley 4 9.1 12 1 4 6 3.86
Zagurski 5 6.0 4 0 1 6 1.50

Some of these guys have a better chance to make it than others, of course.

Neither of the tables above includes stats from "B" games, intrasquad games, etc. For instance, you might recall that Baez got shelled in his first game of the spring, but that was in a "B" game and he's pitched well since then, which explains why his ERA is still 0.00.
