Traded Phillies: how are they doing?

- since the trade: .244/.293/.349 (.642 OPS), 5 SB - 79 wRC+
Traded for Josh Lindblom and AA pitcher Ethan Martin on July 31st. Vic has been the everyday leftfielder and leadoff hitter in LA, with the Dodgers in a neck-and-neck race with the Giants in the NL West.
- with the Phils: 8-9, 4.59 ERA, 3.99 FIP, 3.39 xFIP, 7.8 K/9, 1.2 BB/9, 1.5 HR/9
- since the trade: 0-3, 7.71 ERA, 5.14 FIP, 4.00 xFIP, 7.7 K/9, 3.9 BB/9, 1.7 HR/9
Traded for a PTBNL (became high-A pitcher Ryan O'Sullivan) on August 3rd. In 4 starts Blanton has given up 2, 4, 8, and 4 runs. He's been walking more than usual, and has not been helped by a .369 BABIP.
- with the Phils: .271/.336/.447 (.783 OPS) - 111 wRC+
- since the trade: .195/.240/.310 (.550 OPS) - 47 wRC+
Traded for Nate Schierholtz, AA catcher Tommy Joseph, and high-A pitcher Seth Rosin, on July 31st. Pence became the Giants' everyday right fielder and #5 hitter, but has struggled so far.
- with the Phils: .242/.338/.516 (.854 OPS) in 71 PAs - 127 wRC+
- since the trade: .261/.354/.391 (.746 OPS) in 79 PAs - 103 wRC+
Traded for low-A catcher Gabriel Lino on June 30. Thome was the everyday DH for 18 games, mostly hitting 3rd, before landing on the DL with a herniated disck in his neck. He hasn't played since July 27th, and is now rehabbing in Sarasota. Thome is hoping to make one last run at a ring, and Baltimore is 5 games out in the AL East, and are in a 3-way tie for the 2nd AL wildcard spot. By the way that's despite a negative run differential. They've won 11 (!) more games than their run differential would predict.
On a milestones note, Thome moved into a tie for 24th place all-time in RBIs after joining the Orioles, and the player he tied was Baltimore legend Cal Ripken Jr.

NL Standings and Team Stats
- His next home run (15th) will tie him with Johnny Callison (185) for 11th in Phillies history.
- His next triple (6th) will tie him with Sam Thompson for 3rd on the Phillies list at 106.
- 5 more stolen bases will make him the 3rd player in Phillies history to reach 400, joining (the original) Billy Hamilton (508) and Ed Delahanty (411).
- He needs 15 hits to reach 2,000, and barring injury he should get there some time in September.
- Reaching 400 steals and 2,000 hits will also make him just he 24th player in history with 400 doubles, 400 steals, and 2,000 hits. There are only 7 in history with that combination and also 200 HRs (Rollins is at 184).
More on Rollins' climb up the Phillies record book in this recent milestones post.
- Utley's Sacrifice Fly on Monday tied him with Pat Burrell for 9th on the Phillies list, with 42.
- His next one (3rd this year) will join the logjam at 5th place: Bob Boone, Von Hayes, Mike Lieberthal, and Rollins.
- He needs 4 home runs to reach 200 for his career.
- 5 more doubles (13 total) will tie Granny Hamner for 10th in Phillies history at 271.
- Howard passed Sherry Magee for 6th on the Phillies list in RBIs at 888. He should pass Sam Thompson (957) and Chuck Klein (983) some time next year.
- He needs 9 Ks to tie Pat Burrell for 2nd all-time on the Phillies at 1,273.
- With 294 career home runs in 1,066 games, he needs 6 in his next 20 games in order to reach 300 in the fewest games in history, surpassing Ralph Kiner's record of 1,087. He's had 8 in his first 39 games this year, so he will need to pick up the pace. Howard was already the fastest to 100, 200, and 250. More detail in this milestones post.
- Pierre's next steal (32nd) will tie Maury Wills for 19th all-time at 586.
