Most Valuable Position Player: Runner Up

Cesar Hernandez

Hernandez continued his hot start to the season. The switch-hitting second baseman posted a .375 batting average and .412 on-base percentage in 32 at bats this week.

Hernandez’s average now sits at .339 on the year and as his batting average rises, so does his trade value. It will be interesting to see what Klentak does if Hernandez continues his blistering pace.

Most Valuable Pitcher: Runner Up

Edubray Ramos

Ramos was hit around a little bit this week but ended the week without giving up a single earned run.

The 24-year-old righty threw 5.1 innings giving up seven hits while striking out five in the process. It was a tough week for the starters which opened the door for Ramos to sneak into the MVP conversation.

That coupled with the fact that someone in this Phillies bullpen went 5+ innings without surrendering a run, makes Ramos this week’s runner-up.
