The Philadelphia Phillies are getting most of their power production out of 23-year old righty swinging 3B Maikel Franco and 36-year old lefty swinging 1B Ryan Howard so far this year. Franco is the player the Phillies want to build their offense around for the now and the future. He has played in 32 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 31 of 125 (.248 avg, .747 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 7 homers and 18 RBIs. He has whiffed 26 times so far this year, so he doesn’t have nearly as many holes in his swing as most power hitters do. Howard was projected to platoon with Darin Ruf, but he has played more than expected so far this year. Howard has played in 33 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 18 of 99 (.182 avg, .678 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 8 homers and 16 RBIs. Howard has already whiffed 37 times so far this year, but the Phillies will put up with it as long as he keeps hitting homers. The Phillies are getting 20.4% of their runs scored, 55.6% of their homers and 34% of their RBIs from Franco and Howard so far in 2016.
