The Phillies aren’t sure that they will be able to re-sign starting RF Jayson Werth after the season as he is a impending free agent. But, they will definitely take his free agent walk numbers as he looks highly motivated so far this year. Werth has played in 19 games for the Phillies this season and he is 21 of 65 (.323 avg, 1.005 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 3 homers and 11 RBIs. Werth is also showing increased discipline at the plate as he has 11 walks this season which bodes well for his batting average. Werth is trying to build on his success of last season when he played in 159 games for the Phillies in which he was 153 of 571 (.268 avg, .879 OPS) with 98 runs scored, 36 homers, 99 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. I think that Werth is going to have a better year than he had in 2009 as long as he stays healthy.
