Honorable mention: Turk Ferrell (1956-1961, 1967-1969), Jose Mesa (2001-2003),  Gene Garber (1974-1978)

Ferrell is fifth in appearances among Phillies relievers and first in save percentage among those on this list. He compiled a 47-41 record with a 3.25 ERA in 601 innings.

Mesa was excellent in 2001 and 2002 and ranks second in saves for the Phillies. However his lack of longevity and 6.57 ERA in 2003, drops him out of the top ten.

Garber was a key piece to the Phillies bullpen during their NL East division championship teams of 1976 and 1977. He posted an excellent 2.65 ERA for the Phillies and 1.15 WHIP in 250 appearances.
