Starting 2B Chase Utley and starting RF Domonic Brown have not played a game for the Phillies so far this year. Ben Francisco has stepped up in RF for the Phillies so far this year. He has played in 21 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 20 for 76 (.263 avg, .764 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 3 homers, 12 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Francisco might have worked himself into a timeshare in RF when Brown returns to action, if he keeps playing well. Wilson Valdez has been playing good defense, but the Phillies miss Utley’s bat. Valdez has played in 18 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 15 for 57 (.263 avg, .627 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 5 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Phillies need Francisco & Valdez to keep up the good work until Brown & Utley are ready to return to action.
