Realmuto isn’t the only priority free agent this offseason The Numbers: .284/.339/.488, 237 PA, 10 HR, 40 RBI, 28:15 K:BB, 119 OPS+ The Good: Coming off an injury-shortened 2019 season, Didi Gregorius was the only Phillies player who appeared in all 60 regular-season games in 2020.
The bullpen figures to be among the Phillies’ top priorities this winter — a new deal with J.T. Realmuto is surely their No. 1 goal — and moving on from Hembree and Morgan now gives them a bit more flexibility.

Could Marcus Semien be the Philadelphia Phillies next shortstop? The closer and closer we get to the offseason, the more it’s starting to feel like Didi Gregorious won’t be back with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2021.
The Philadelphia Phillies aren’t helping their superstar outfielder succeed. When Philadelphia Phillies ownership inked Bryce Harper to the largest contract in franchise history, it was meant to signal a change in the team’s direction.
Didi Gregorius’ decision last winter to bet on himself with a one-year deal looks to have been a wise one, and he’ll now head back to free agency on the heels of a .284/.339/.488 slash with 10 home runs in a full 60 games.
