Phillies Milestones -- August 13, 2012

After the jump, a brief milestones update...

Jimmy Rollins
- Assuming he plays at short tonight, Rollins will tie Larry Bowa for most games at Short in Phillies history, with 1,730.
- His walk on Saturday (his 39th) tie Darren Daulton for 9th on the Phillies all-time liest, with 607.
- His next triple (6th) will tie him with Sam Thompson for 3rd on the Phillies list at 106.
- 2 more home runs (15 for the year) will tie him with Johnny Callison (185) for 11th in Phillies history.
- He needs 23 hits to reach 2,000, and barring injury he should get there some time in September.
More on Rollins' assault on the Phillies record book in a recent milestones post.

Chase Utley
- His next Sacrifice Fly (2nd this year) will tie him with Pat Burrell for 9th on the Phillies list, with 42.
- He needs 4 home runs to reach 200 for his career.

Ryan Howard
- Howard's next extra base hit (11th this year) will tie Cy Williams for 10th on the Phillies' list with 503.
- He needs 4 more RBI (22 total) to tie Sherry Magee for 6th on the Phillies list at 886.
- With 293 career home runs in 1,056 games, he needs 7 in his next 30 games in order to reach 300 in the fewest games in history, surpassing Ralph Kiner's record of 1,087. He's had 7 in his first 29 games this year, so it's probably going to be close. Howard was already the fastest to 100, 200, and 250. More detail in this milestones post.

Juan Pierre
- His next steal (29th) will tie 19th century outfielder George Van Haltren for 20th all-time, with 583.
- He needs four more steals to reach #19 Maury Wills at 586.
