Least Valuable Position Player
Joseph has had a horrendous April and this past week didn’t help. The 25-year-old righty went 1 for 8(.125) providing little else to the stat line except for zeros.
Joseph is now hitting just .190 with just one home run through the first month of the season. With Joseph and Brock Stassi both struggling, the Phillies future at first base is now in question.
This is Joseph’s second LVPP award on the year.

Neris had a nightmare week. The split-finger specialist gave up eight hits and six runs in just 3.1 innings pitched.
Neris’ week was capped off by giving up back to back to back home runs to Yasiel Puig, Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner to blow a 5-2 lead in the bottom of ninth on Saturday night.
It looks as if the closer by committee will continue for the foreseeable future as it’s becoming evident that nobody wants to step up and nail down the job.
This is Neris’ first LVP award of the season.
