Aaron Altherr is alive
After a down series against the Pirates, Aaron Altherr appeared to spring back to life against the Rockies. Appearing in all four games the outfielder managed four hits, including two doubles on Monday in the 8-1 loss.
How Altherr’s playing time will be affected by Howie Kendrick’s imminent return is unknown, but opportunities to start in center field are likely.
After Tommy Joseph Altherr has had one of the best months for the Phillies offensively during their early season drought. The 26-year-old is hitting .298 this month with eight home runs while stealing three bases.
Altherr will get his opportunities, but should the losing start to affect him at the plate, expect the leash to be short.
