Phillies Stat Notes: Rollins milestones keep coming

Rollins is four extra base hits away from becoming only the 5th shortstop in baseball history with 800. With three games remaining before the trade deadline, Papelbon needs two saves to tie Tug McGraw for 5th most in Phils history. And the East has the best aggregate run differential in the NL.

NL Standings and Team Stats

The Mets have a firm grip on 4th place and could even challenge for 3rd...


Reverse Standings


2015 Draft Pick:

7th if the season ended today (6th by record, plus Houston's #2 comp. pick for Aiken)
8th based on projected end-of-season standings (FanGraphs: 7th by record, plus comp. pick)

Run Differential by Division

The East has now taken over the NL lead for best aggregate run differential:


Phillies Team Stats vs. 2013 and vs. Mets


The Phils were 13th in runs per game a week ago, but have now moved up to a seemingly-almost-respectable 9th. That's only because there is a group of teams in the 3.8-3.9 range (Mets, Braves, Cubs, Reds, Cards), and over the last week the Phillies improved slightly from 3.83 to 3.88 runs to move from the back of that little pack, to the front.

Bobby Abreu has been slumping since mid-June (45 PAs): 5 for his last 39 with 6 walks, hitting .128/.244/.128 in that time. His season line still isn't bad for a bench bat, at .244/.338/.345 (.683 OPS, 99 wRC+) in 139 PAs.

Recent milestones by Phillies players, and those that may be reached over the next week...

Jimmy Rollins

  • Rollins' next stolen base will make this his 11th season with 10+ HR and 20+ steals. No other shortstop has more than eight such seasons:

    10 - Jimmy Rollins
    8 - Derek Jeter
    7 - Barry Larkin
    6 - Hanley Ramirez
    5 - Jose Reyes

  • His 20th steal will also give him 13 seasons with 20+. Only two shortstops have more:

    16 - Ozzie Smith
    14 - Bert Campaneris

  • His next time caught stealing (6th of the year) will be the 95th of his career and will put him past Larry Bowa for sole possession of #1 in Phillies history. Caught stealing stats have been kept since 1951. When talking about Rollins and this caught stealing mark, lest people get the wrong idea it always feels necessary to add that Rollins has had one of the highest stealing success rates in history:

    9th highest among the 147 players with 300+ attempts
    4th highest among the 44 with 500+

  • Rollins scored his 1300th run last week, becoming...
    - the 123rd player in history with 1300+
    - the 11th shortstop
    - the 7th active player
    - and the 3rd Phillie
  • With four more extra base hits (37 total this year), Rollins will reach 800 for his career. He'll be...
    - the 2nd Phillie with 800+, joining Mike Schmidt (1015)
    - and the 5th shortstop in baseball history with that many, joining Ripken (1078), Wagner (996), Jeter (859), and Cronin (803).

Chase Utley

  • Utley passed Wiz Kid shortstop Granny Hamner for 10th most hits in franchise history and is now at 1525. Next at #9 is Cy Williams, with 1553.
  • His next HBP (9th this year) will tie Utley with Kid Elberfeld for 17th most all-time, at 165. Derek Jeter is 16th (167), and Alex Rodriguez 15th (169). Elberfeld was a turn of the century infielder who first came up with the Phillies (his SABR bio).

Cole Hamels

  • Hamels' start on Thursday was the 262nd of his career, tying Curt Simmons for 5th most in Phils history:

    499 - Steve Carlton
    472 - Robin Roberts
    301 - Chris Short
    280 - Grover Cleveland Alexander
    262 - Curt Simmons
    262 - Cole Hamels

Jonathan Papelbon

  • On the Phillies' all-time list, Papelbon passed Ron Reed (90) for 6th most, and needs two more (27 on the year) to tie Tug McGraw for 5th at 94. He may have to hurry obviously, with only three games remaining before the non-waiver trade deadline.
  • He's now tied with Tom Henke for 20th on the MLB all-time list, and needs three more (28 this year) to tie Robb Nen for 19th, at 314.
