Philadelphia Phillies: Is César Hernández the second baseman of the future?

So far this season César Hernández has been the Philadelphia Phillies best batter. Nothing against Odubel Herrera who’s certainly not disappointed at the plate, but dual combo of Hernández’s speed and contact skills have placed him on the base paths in 14 of the Phillies 17 games this season. While Hernández has been on the team for five years, he was actually signed as...

We have to be overdue for an Odubel Herrera ejection

In an age of emotional, spiteful, and incompetent umpiring, it’s sort of incredible Herrera hasn’t been tossed. People have been murmuring it for months: among Odubel Herrera’s more endearing qualities is his reflex to point at a pitch’s location, looking to the umpire for mere confirmation. Of course, what is “endearing” to us about a player might be infuriating and...

Is Odubel Herrera a Good Defensive Center Fielder?

A year ago today, baseball fans outside of the Delaware Valley were first introduced to a rookie outfielder on the worst team in baseball. His name: Odubel Herrera. You may recall that Herrera was a Rule 5 pick who had been a second baseman in the Rangers organization only to find himself named the Opening Day center fielder for the Phillies due to the, how shall we say, less than...

WATCH: Odubel Herrera forgets how many outs there are, gives fan a souvenir

The Philadelphia Phillies got walloped 13-2 by the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday at Citizens Bank Park, and a play in the top of the eighth inning summarized the Phillies’ night quite well. Toronto’s Michael Saunders hit a flyball which Philadelphia center fielder Odubel Herrera caught for the second out of the inning. I repeat, the second out of the inning. Herrera thought...

What’s Going On With Odubel Herrera

This year, Odubel Herrera is an everyday player, and only two players in baseball have drawn more walks. On its own, maybe that doesn’t convey its real significance, so consider that, last year, Odubel Herrera was an everyday player, and 193 players in baseball drew more walks. Herrera today has more than twice as many walks drawn as Joey Votto. Votto last year out-walked Herrera...

2015 Player Review: Odubel Herrera

Herrera was the Phillies’ best offensive player in 2015 by a wide margin. Photo: MLB.com There have been good Rule 5 picks made by the Phillies: Dave Hollins was an All-Star, Clay Dalrymple was the best defensive catcher of the 1960s per FanGraphs, and Shane Victorino won Gold Gloves, had huge playoff hits, and helped the Phils bring home a World Series. There have been bad Rule...
