Martinez is in rare company: the bottom 1.6% of all-time in on-base plus slugging among the 5238 players with at least 300 plate appearances. The Phillies had four players accrue between 26 and 100 PA in 2013. In most years, these players are usually young, up-and-coming players who are getting a brief look at the Major League level. This was not necessarily the case with this crop for the Phillies. For our reviews of the seven players who had 25 or less plate appearances, click here. Michael Martinez Martinez hit .175/.175/.175 in 2013 in 40 PA, worth negative 0.5 win, placing him among the least valuable per plate appearance in the Majors. Martinez’s .495 career OPS ranks 5135th out of 5238 Major Leaguers with at least 300 career PA, placing him in the bottom 1.6% of non-pitchers, all-time. Of course, the Phillies designated Martinez for assignment after another below-average season. And of course, the Phillies re-signed Martinez after he elected free agency. Grade: F- Casper Wells Wells
