Phillies Hitters vs. Projections

Phillies hitters' OPS compared to the past three years, and to what various projection systems predicted for 2012. Also includes recent trends (last 30 and last 7 days):

Phillies Team Stats vs. 2011 and vs. the Nationals

- High level offensive stats are squarely in the middle of the pack, ranging from 9th (OBP), to 6th (wRC+).
- For the 2nd straight year, the Phillies are leading the NL in most first pitches taken.


NL Standings and Team Stats



Jimmy Rollins
- On Friday, Rollins passed Richie Ashburn to move into 2nd place in Phillies history in plate appearances, and now has 8,236.
- If he plays in 2 of the Phillies' last 3 games (for 158 total), he will also tie Ashburn for 2nd most in Phillies history in games played, with 1,794.

Rollins is already second on the Phillies' list in five main stats, and could make it six by Wednesday. This is where he currently stands on these, and what he needs to take over the all-time lead:

Games: 1,792. Schmidt is first at 2,404, or four full seasons away.
PAs: 8,236. Schmidt is first at 10,062, and Rollins would have to average 606 in 2013-15 to pass him.
ABs: 7,490. Schmidt is first at 8,352, so Rollins would likely pass him sometime in 2014.
Doubles: 421. Delahanty is first at 442 -- Rollins will probably pass him next year.
Extra base hits: 719. Schmidt is first with 1,015, and well out or reach under Rollins' current contract.
Total bases: 3,234. Schmidt is first with 4,404, and well out of reach.
More on Rollins' climb up the Phillies record book in this recent milestones post.

- Rollins has now scored 100 runs for the 6th time in his career. He's the 11th active player with that many, joining Jeter (13, and 98 so far this year), ARod (13), Pujols (10), Chipper Jones, Ichiro, Jim Thome, and Bobby Abreu (all 8), Carlos Beltran (7), Todd Helton (6), and Miguel Cabrera (6 incl. this year).
- He nees 2 RBIs (70 total) to tie Cy Williams for 11th in Phillies history, at 795.
- He needs 2 home runs (25 total) to tie Bobby Abreu for 10th in Phillies history with 195.
- His next triple (6th) will tie Sam Thompson for 3rd on the Phillies list at 106. After hitting 5 triples in his first 85 games this year, he's had 0 in his last 71.

Chase Utley
- He has 199 home runs and his next one (12th this year) will make him the 9th Phillie to reach 200.

Ryan Howard
- Howard finished the season with 517 extra base hits, 10th on the Phillies all-time list and one behind Pat Burrell.

Roy Halladay
- Doc's win on Saturday moved him back into 5th place in all-time W-L %, at .666.
- He finishes 2012 with 199 wins, and his first win of 2013 will make him the 3rd active pitcher with 200+, joining Jamie Moyer (269, and assuming he hasn't retired yet) and Andy Petitte (243).

Cliff Lee
- On Friday Lee reached 200 Ks for the 2nd time in his career.

Jonathan Papelbon
- Papelbon's 38 saves this year ties 2009 for the second highest total of his career. The only year he saved more was 2008, with 41.
- 69 2/3 innings is the most he has ever pitched, surpassing 2008's 69 1/3.
- His FIP is slightly higher than career average (2.70 vs. 2.61), but both his ERA (2.20 vs. 2.31) and xFIP (2.77 vs. 3.05) are below those averages.
