Phillies Hitters vs. Projections


Ben Revere
Revere's 1.000 OPS over the last week is in limited playing time -- he is 6 for 14 with two walks (and a .500 BABIP).

Out of 180 qualifiers in the majors at this point, here is where Revere ranks in some plate discipline stats:

- 30th out of 180 in most pitches seen in the strike zone (48.8%)
- 8th lowest out of 180 in the % of pitches swung at (38.1%)
- 1st lowest out of 180 in the % of pitches in the zone that he's swung at (51.0%)
- 65th lowest out of 180 in the % of pitches out of the strike zone that he's swung at (25.7%)

He also has some of the highest contact rates in MLB:
- 8th highest contact rate overall (91.7%)
- 4th highest rate when swinging at pitches in the strike zone (97.1%)
- 17th highest rate on pitches outside the zone (81.5%) -- not likely to be quality contact

Phillies Team Stats vs. 2012 and vs. the D-backs


Arizona is far ahead of the Phils in most offensive categories, but their park adjusted wRC+ is only slightly ahead, ranking 11th vs. the Phils' 13th.




NL Standings and Team Stats

Colorado is having a great year offensively so far, and they've been almost successful on the road as they have at very hitter friendly Coors Field. They lead the NL in OPS at home (.820), but they also lead in OPS on the road (.800), and by a wide margin.

In the table below, OPS+ has been replaced by wRC+:

Ryan Howard
- Howard's two walks on Tuesday moved him past Greg Luzinski for 11th in Phils' history, with 573.
