Most Valuable Position Player

Howie Kendrick

Kendrick came off the disabled list and immediately made and impact. The veteran utility man hit .300 on the week with a home run. Kendrick looked healthy and even managed to steal a base, showing that his oblique injury is fully healed.

Kendrick will likely be an everyday starter now that he is back and hopefully he can help jumpstart the top of a struggling lineup.

Most Valuable Pitcher

Ben Lively

The brightest moment of last week was thanks to Lively. Lively made his major league debut in grand fashion tossing seven innings of one run ball. The 6’4″ righty, acquired by the Phils in the Marlon Byrd deal, scattered just four hits in those seven innings.

Lively will be in search of his first major league strikeout his next time out.
