STRUGGLING HITTERS

Maikel Franco had a putrid week at the plate, hitting just .115, though he did blast one homer.

Aaron Altherr returned from a long stint on the DL to finally make his 2016 debut. While he did shine in his first game back, he batted just .231 on the week with a homer.

Rule 5 pick Tyler Goeddel continues to struggle, though he also wasn’t given much opportunity. Goeddel went hitless in six official at bats this week.

Tyler Featherston has struggled since replacing Andres Blanco on the Phils roster. Rather than maximize his opportunity, Featherston hit just .167 with a stolen base this week.

Tommy Joseph, Cody Ashe, and Ruiz all continued to struggle this week as well. The trio combined to hit for just a .177 average with little production.
