In one of our biggest celebrations of the Philadelphia Phillies, every week the members of The Good Phight will be issuing one of baseball’s greatest achievements to date: The Good Phil of the Week Award. One MLB player and one MiLB player will receive the award each week and will be able to boast to their teammates that they are, in fact, a Good Phil.
Major League Good Phil of the Week: Corey Dickerson
There were multiple candidates this week, but Corey Dickerson’s continual success over the past month has given him the edge over the rest of the pack. He went 10-for-25 this week (.400) with two homers, a double, six RBIs and four runs scored. He now has 25 RBIs in 25 games since joining the Phillies. In that time he’s hit .296/.307/.561 with 14 extra base hits, including five home runs. He’s the second-fastest Phil to reach 25 RBIs with the team in history, only behind Rhys Hoskins who did it in 19 games.
Other Good Phils Receiving Votes:
Zach Eflin, J.T. Realmuto, Aaron Nola, Bryce Harper, Adam Haseley, Brad Miller
Minor League Good Phil of the Week: Deivy Grullon
Grullon has had a monster year with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, hitting .283/.354/.496. His 21 home runs is tied for the most in the Phillies minor league system this season with Alec Bohm. He also collected 24 doubles, 45 walks and 77 RBIs in 108 games. This week he went 7-for-19 (.368) with three homers and four RBIs, including a two-homer game on Saturday. On Sunday, he earned his very first call up to the major leagues with the roster expansion. It was much-deserved, congrats to Deivy!
Other Minor League Good Phils Receiving Votes:
The Reading Fightin Phils and the Gulf Coast League Phillies West were the two minor league teams that made the playoffs in their respective leagues this season. Due to Hurricane Dorian, the Gulf Coast League has shut down for the remainder of the season and will not have playoffs. The Phillies finished as the best team in the Northern Division (33-15), and held the second-best record in the entire league behind the Orioles (38-15).
Reading clinched the Eastern League’s Eastern division with a 80-59 record (41-31 in the second half). They finished with the best overall record in the entire league. They will face the Trenton Thunder, who won the division in the first half of the season, in the first round of playoffs starting Wednesday.
